The names of the 20 emerging designers selected by Vogue Italia to pair up with the S.Pellegrino Young Chef 2015 finalists have finally been announced. Each designer will reinterpret the work of their team-mate through a fashion creation inspired by the chef’s dish, in an unprecedented fusion of fine food and style.
The finalist chefs will be mentored by a master chef from their own geographical area, who will guide them through the demanding task of honing and perfecting their signature dish to claim the first prize. The Grand Final of the global talent search launched by S.Pellegrino will be held the 26 of June during Expo Milano 2015. In the occasion the best couple chef/designer will be awarded too.
Here below you find the names of the creative couples. Their portraits are available on FineDiningLovers.com.
