Lineapelle supports student design6 July 2005
The annual student design competition organised by Lineapelle in conjunction with Tokyo Leather Fair received entries from students of Japan's top fashion institutes. Judges appreciated the high quality of the designs which focussed on the research and use of new materials featuring abstract geometrical detailing. First prize in the footwear category was won by Konen Kamo, aged 19, and the leathergoods category was awarded to Arata Higuchi, 25. Both winners will receive a trip to Italy to attend the Lineapelle fair. The winning designs will be exhibited in hall 26 at the next edition of Lineapelle Bologna, which runs from October 25-27.
