Last evening, Peroni Nastro Azzurro - the world’s number one premium Italian beer - and long-time creative partner Antonio Berardi hosted an award ceremony and cocktail party to announce the very first MADE for Peroni Young Designer. Berardi led a panel of judges-- including MADE Co-Founder Jenne Lombardo, Dean of the School of Fashions, Parsons The New School for Design Simon Colins, Fashion Insider Roopal Patel, and director and photographer Francesco Carrozzini, and Assistant Professor Jason Paul McCarthy-- to declare Nolan Bellavance as the standout up-and-coming Parsons BFA graduate who will receive support from Peroni, Berardi and MADE.
Nolan will receive support from Peroni, Beradi, and MADE to launch a collection and will also receive his own spot during MADE Fashion Week in February 2013.
Guests included Antonio Beradi, Jenne Lombardo, Simon Colins, Roopal Patel, Francisco Carrozzini, Jason Paul McCarthy, Katya Bravo, Louigi Porceddu, Gianni Aslo, Chris Miller, Dennis Cartwright, Kalvin Lazarte, Sierra Steplewsky, Laura Zukaite, Adam Solan, Samira Zebian, Mazdack Rossi, and Jennifer Laine.
