Italian Fashion Designer Eleonora Falcone Wins SHEIN X Global Challenge 2024 in a tough competition that saw more than a thousand designer from 70 different countries join the contest by the Chinese fast-fashion company. This could be a huge career change for Eleonora Falcone and we might see her very soon on the catwalks of Milan Fashion Week.

The SHEIN X Global Challenge 2024 

SHEIN, a global online fashion and lifestyle retailer, is proud to announce that the winner of the SHEIN X Global Challenge 2024 is Eleonora Falcone from Italy.

With her collection, “GLOWMANTIC“, Eleonora received some of the highest votes in the public voting stage of the challenge to make it into the finals, before wowing the judges to take home the title and prize money of EUR 10,000.

“All of us on the judging panel were heartened to see so many submissions by female designers this year, and that they topped the list with 9 finalists. Eleanora’s submission stood out right from the start. When she presented her submission, inspiration and rational at the finals in London, we knew we had a bright fashion star in our midst. Her drive to succeed was clearly evident, as was her ability to decipher the theme and translate it into what will certainly be a popular collection.”

Eleonora will become a part of the SHEIN X Designer Incubator Program, SHEIN’s flagship incubator program that empowers emerging designers to launch successful global fashion brands, guiding and supporting them through the end-to-end process, from product development, to manufacturing, marketing, and supply chain logistics. SHEIN X Designers will leverage SHEIN’s industry-leading on-demand supply chain to accurately establish customer demand via customer feedback in real time, and then produce only what is needed.

The other nine finalists did not go home empty-handed. Juliana Cavalcanti de Siqueira from Brazil took home the Creativity Award for her submission’s ability to tell a unique story, spark confidence, and celebrate individuality. Japan’s Yuto Nomura was awarded the Next Gen Award as a top designer who embraces a sense of innovation, with a collection that embodies the future of fashion. And Fungai Sarah Muzoroza from the United Kingdom walked away with the Style Award, for her collection that seamlessly curated, with a single outfit that heroes the Radiance theme. The winner of each of these categories was awarded EUR5,000. All other finalists went home with EUR3,000 each.
