Valentino just isn’t sitting still. While fast fashion is hardly his style, the retired designer is expected to attend a Sept. 28 press conference at Mango’s revamped Boulevard Haussmann flagship in Paris to promote the brand’s fledgling El Botón (The Button) Mango Fashion Awards. Valentino presides over the jury for the initiative, launched at the end of 2006, which takes place every 18 months and is positioned as a springboard for semi-established young designers. Sandrina Fasoli, co-winner of the competition’s inaugural edition, also will be present, as will a number of Mango executives including the brand’s president Isac Andic. This year’s 10 finalists will be unveiled in November, with the winner to be revealed in April. The award represents a cash prize of 300,000 euros, or $439,000 at current exchange.
