2019 October – Agrigento (Sicily).
The Jury of the prestigious “Acamante & Filliade” Award of the Agrigento’s Academy of Fine Arts unanimously chooses Dimitar Dradi as the best emerging fashion designer in Italy.
The Prize, a beautiful sculpture created by the Sicilian Artist Domenico Boscia, was performed in the splendid setting of the Joppolo Giancaxio Castle.
<< It is truly an honor to receive this recognition from an institution that is primarily concerned with art. I have always maintained that Haute Couture is art and as such is also one of the most influential “ambassadors” of our country. The Italian style and taste are admired everywhere, everyone would like a true made in Italy high fashion creation just as everyone would like to come at least once in their life to visit this beautiful land that today honors me with its choice. Thank you! >> These are the words of Dimitar Dradi during the award ceremony in front of the regional and local authorities where he focused his speech on the incentive for young people to “hold on”, to “believe” and not to think that it is all granted. The sacrifices and commitment, in the long run, pay off.
Certainly this was the case for Dimitar Dradi who knew how to find his natural sphere of undisputed contemporary art in fashion.
