The latter is “Intreccincantiere”, promoted -for three years- by Domodossola Manufacturing along with Lineapelle and Gruppo Banco Popolare: 90 young fashion designers, coming from international art schools, are taking part in it. Aiming to create new items for the leather industry, home interiors, footwear, apparel and jewellery, thus using the “trademark” weaves of the company based in Villadossola (Verbania). For both contests works will be exhibited in a special stand during Lineapelle92: pavilion 9 for Craft the Leather, pavilion 24 (stand E23) for Intreccincantiere. Winners will be assigned a money scholarship to enable them to pursue with their fashion design training.
