The following year, at the Miami Fashion Week, she in fact received the Designer of the Year Award, previously granted to Carolina Herrera and Oscar de la Renta. What could have been a final goal for many designers, was just a target for her to reach and from where launch into new challenges.
Not surprisingly, the city of Milan offered her a prestigious stage for her creativity: Porta Venezia, a monument symbol where East meets West; in September 2005 she organized a memorable happening, where her models came walking down the catwalk accompanied by a melody played by the violinist Saule Kilaite, an admirer and dear friend of hers.
In July 2006 Roberta Scarpa, together with other famous fashion designers, presented her creations in Salonicco at Festitalia, an event organized by the Salonicco Italian Cultural Institute.
In November that same year she was invited to Shapes and Colours of Italy and Shapes and Colours of Venice in Beijing and Shanghai, two exhibitions organized by the Italian Cultural Institute promoting the Italian culture in China.
In 2008 she received the Radicchio d’Oro, another prestigious award assigned to people of exemplary industriousness and granted in the past to celebrities like Mogol, Margherita Hack, Fulvio Roiter and Vittorio Sgarbi.
In 2010 Roberta Scarpa contributed to the realization of a book titled “COLORS – Symbols, History, Correspondance” written by the fashion journalist Luciana Boccardi, creating a preface which evidences the interest that the designer has always had for colors.
And in 2011, some of Roberta Scarpa’s most important creations were exhibited at the Revoltella Museum of Trieste, at the presentation of the book.
