The students of the Master in CO Design and Sustainable Fashion create a collection for Capitán Denim.
If there is one thing we like at Capitán Denim, it is to see sustainability as present and future. That is why we are committed to intense training in sustainable fashion in universities, schools and educational centers. In 2021, the students of the Master in CO in Design and Sustainable Fashion chose Capitán Denim as a benchmark brand in sustainable fashion and decided to create a collection for us.
For our part, we offered them the materials where our brand appeared, such as labels. They were able to see first-hand our factory and the production processes we work with. They also saw how we replace traditional processes with more sustainable processes, such as Greensight technology.
The VALIENTE 22|23 collection was made by the group of students from the Master's course 20|21. The collection was made in the subject "Fashion as a Sign of Identity" coordinated by the teacher Amparo Pardo Cuenca.
VALIENTE has been conceived within the framework of the creative identity of Capitán Denim through a co-creative process in which a co-design methodology was applied in which Juan González, one of our partners, took an active part. This collection represents another step forward in the company's desire to grow and in its future collaborations with the academy. From this Valiente approach, it is the first pilot collection developed in close collaboration between EASD and Capitán Denim.
It is a timeless, agenero and sustainable collection where the main concept revolves around hybridization, craftsmanship and technology. Its main values are the mix of environmental concern, rebelliousness, authenticity, bucolic and technology, values that resonate through Generation Z.
In the creative technical development, different Eco Design strategies were applied. We used fabric scraps that we provided and worked with the zero waste pattern making technique with upcycling hybridization. In addition, we provided the dyeing, smoothing and finishing with our Eco Finish technology. Finally, after its confection, details were made with laser finishing, 3D printing and engraving of details made in the FABLab of the EASD.
