Nensi Dojaka (LVMH Prize Winner) and emerging design house AC9 are set to collaborate with Alessandro Dell’Acqua’s luxury label No. 21 on two collections.
Dojaka, a London-based designer, has been given the task of leading the creative direction for a collection that reimagines No. 21 aesthetic.
Dell’Acqua and Tomorrow London launched a mentorship program last year offering design and collection development and marketing advice. AC9 and Dojaka were the first to be selected for the program. Each of their future sales campaigns will also be hosted by mentorees.
Dojaka will present her first show in person at London Fashion Week this year, following her success at LVMH awards where she was awarded a grant of 300,000 euros and a mentorship program for a year from the luxury conglomerate. According to Dojaka, Dell’Acqua was a major source of inspiration.
These upcoming collections will appear on the spring/summer 2022 runways. Cortese will present his mini-collection of eight pieces during Milan Fashion Week.
