Greek Young Designers’ Competition addressed to future designers now studying at fashion schools and universities in Greece is being organized once again by Hellenic Association of Furriers within the framework of Fur Excellence in Athens – International Fur Fair.
The competition which is sponsored by FEA’S Grand Sponsor, NAFA, North American Fur Auction House, as well by its organizer, Hellenic Association of Furriers, offers the winners the opportunity to enter into the world of fur.
The ten finalists are eligible to attent the two days Fur Info Seminar in Kastoria, plus the Fur Excellence Workshop, taking place during FEA.
The top three winners receive an all expense paid trip to Toronto where they participate in a week long design workshop at Studio NAFA along with winners of design competitions that NAFA holds around the world, in countries such as China, Hong Kong, Korea, Japan, Italy, Greece, Turkey, Russia and Ukraine.
Fresh new ideas testing the frontier of fur creativity are presented each year by the participants expressing in their own unique way their perception over a given theme. This year’s theme is “Light, Space, Air” and students are asked along with their design to create a fur fabric that could be worn all time of the year. For more information you can read here.
