2022 Graduate Collection Show / Prize Winners

The 26th ESMOD Japon Graduation Collection Show was held at the Tokyo International Cruise Terminal on Tuesday, March 8, 2022.

This year’s theme was “Reveal us”.

It was born out of the idea of revealing the mind, body, spirit and process behind the creativity of this young generation in a day when sustainability and technology have become the new normal.

Prior to the show, 70 fashion industry professionals were invited to attend the two-day graduation judging held on March 2-3, and the awards were presented on the day of the show.
