THE ELVARDI AWARD

Making a Difference One Sneaker at a Time

Partnering with UAL

At ELVARDI, we believe luxury sneakers should do more than just make a style statement. They should empower and elevate. That's why we have partnered with the University of the Arts London (UAL), one of the world's leading creative universities, to support emerging talents from underserved backgrounds. Together with the University of the Arts London, we're opening doors for the next wave of creatives. Our partnership ensures that talent from underserved backgrounds gets the spotlight it deserves.

Origins and Purpose

The ELVARDI Award was born from a vision to create a more inclusive and diverse creative industry. Recognising the barriers that often hinder talented individuals from underrepresented backgrounds, we established this award to provide not just financial support, but also mentorship and exposure to the broader creative community. Our goal is to empower these creatives to pursue their passions without restraint, equipping them with the tools they need to succeed and innovate.

empowering creative talents

Our collaboration with UAL, began with a shared commitment to diversity and inclusion within the arts. UAL's expertise in nurturing exceptional talent paired with ELVARDI's innovative approach to merging technology with luxury fashion has set the foundation for a partnership that truly makes a difference. Together, we are dedicated to identifying promising talents from underserved backgrounds and providing them with the support that can change the trajectory of their careers.

WHY IT MATTERS?

CULTIVATE DIVERSITY

By supporting these creatives, you foster diversity and inclusivity in the arts. This shapes our culture by encouraging a broader range of voices and perspectives in the creative industries.

DRIVE INNOVATION

These artists and designers bring fresh perspectives and innovative ideas that drive the creative industry forward, making it more vibrant and representative of our rich tapestry of culture.

ENHANCE CAREER OPPORTUNITIES

This fund helps provide access to scholarships, workshops, and much needed resources to equip these talented individuals studying at UAL to flourish in their creative career.

How Your Purchase Helps

When you buy a pair of ELVARDI sneakers, we donate 10% of the purchase directly to this transformative program. This means that every time you buy our exquisite footwear, you are contributing to a lasting impact. By doing so, we are not just creating shoes, but also building a legacy of support, creativity and change. We invite you to join us in empowering creators who will redefine the boundaries of fashion and art. Let's embark on this journey together!

MAKING A CHANGE TOGETHER

We highly value transparency, which is why we have implemented an innovative blockchain-enabled Digital passport system. This system allows us to store records of the total number of sneakers sold, the amount raised for the ELVARDI award, and the specific ways in which the funds are being used to support young creatives. By using this system, we ensure complete transparency in our operations.
