Brief Proposal for Scholarship

1. About Harper’s Bazaar 


A vast repository for all the rare and costly things of Earth: silks, velvets, cachemeres, spices, perfumes, and glittering gems: in a word, whatever can comfort the heart and delight the eye is found heaped up there in bewildering profusion. (From the 1st issue of Harper’s Bazaar, Nov. 2 1867)

Since its foundation in 1867, Harper’s Bazaar has revolutionized the rules of style and has contributed changing the history of costume becoming the most prestigious magazine at an international level.
In 2020 Harper’s Bazaar arrived in Italy with a “video-first” edition, the BazaarTv. Its mission is to reintroduce the same innovative disruption that the brand performed 153 years before. It does so in video format, the most contemporary mean of expression, redefining the digital experience we are used to.

2. Scholarship Contest

Candidates are requested to submit a creative project to develop on how, at this specific point in time, the fashion system has reacted presenting a different way to communicate the glamour: virtual exhibitions, video experience, online shopping together with physical events and occasions. After this analysis, new values are enhancing creativity in fashion like the body positive approach, the Black Lives Matter movement to give the same rights to young (and not ones) generations, the Uniqueness and the ageless beauty. These are the topics to this project.
