Lineapelle Award is a competition launched on September 11, 2019. It involves 24 students from the Fashion Design and Industrial Design departments of Hongik University. “The project – explain Lineapelle – stimulated the participants to discover and communicate Italian leather’s values of circularity and sustainability. At the end of an articulated didactic path (briefing, workshop, presentation and development of the projects) all the prototypes made by the students were the protagonists of a dedicated exhibition set up last December in South Korea. And today they will come to the fair.
