The hyper-decorative creativity of Giuseppe della Badia took centre stage at WHITE MAN & WOMAN, and with his brand GEDEBE he won the sixth edition of the contest launched by Alfredo Ramponi

The contest, conceived by the “Made in Italy” company that has a leading position in the manufacture of synthetic crystals and ABS studs for clothing and accessories, awarded the talent of the young designer, who in 2010 founded the brand GEDEBE.

Thanks to the collaboration between the company and the trade publishing house Nuova Libra, with the partnership of the research trade show WHITE, the designer was able to exhibit his collection during the June edition of WHITE MAN & WOMAN.

All of this thanks to a change in rules, a contest without deadlines or time limits.

For this debut all the designers who won the previous editions, adapting their creativity to the “Ramponi world”, exhibited their creations at White. So, Talent Network becomes a way to explore new forms of dialogue between creativity and industry, the study of materials and corporate technologies.
