Aitor Goikoetxea Wins ITS Contest 2021

Fashion graduate Aitor Goikoetxea wins the ITS Responsible Creativity Award powered by Allianz of the in the last edition of the International Talent Support 2021 – ITS Contest 2021.


Recently graduated with the BA in Fashion Design at IED Barcelona, his final collection ‘Aitarekin Afaltzen [Dinner with my Father]’ has been awarded in this contest known worldwide for his mission of scouting new talents and supporting them.

My collection is a journey to my past in which I reflect on the relationship I had with my father. My father died eight years ago, and at that moment I realized that he was unknown to me” explains the fashion designer who graduated in June 2021.

The fact of seeing him four days a month supposed that the moments in which we sit on a table were essential to connect. Those eating moments were always full of nostalgia, since we always talk of the past, things that already happened, or the future, thinking about things that would still happen”.


This collection highlights the value of traditional and manual processes, such as the creation of fabrics from scratch, hand knitting and embroidery. The vivid colour palette symbolises a commitment to a positive outlook on life. 

The superposition of garments, shirts made from napkins, trouser-skirts made from tablecloths and prints made from photographs of family scenes, stand out in this collection.
