In Seoul, Lineapelle meets Hongik University students

Third and last stop for Lineapelle’s Korean mission. After the interior and automotive designers. After fashion designers in close connection with the scenario of Seoul Fahion Week, Lineapelle returns to the desks of Hongik University to reaffirm the training strategic nature of a relationship started in 2019, which has brought tangible results. A relationship that will continue and of which “we are really happy and satisfied” admits Lee Seung Ik, lecturer in the Korean university‘s Textile Art and Fashion Textile department.

Hongik University students

40 Hongik University students attended the third day of training seminars organised in Seoul by Lineapelle and offered under the title K-Leather Taste Makers. A composite and transversal audience. “Students in Fashion Design, Textile Design and Textile Art,” explained Lee Seung Ik, “who attend courses in different years and, in some cases, are already involved in masters courses at high-level brands”. An ideal audience, in short, to tell “why Italian leather”, explains Orietta Pelizzari, global fashion consultant of Lineapelle, “is circular for all intents and surposes, and what are all the peculiarities that define its quality”, as well as its versatility and excellence.

Training seminar

The demonstration of the importance of this training sowing (and the need to run it repeatedly and continuously) was clear. It was read on the faces of the students, most of whom were unaware of many of the concepts covered. But, at the same time, super-interested and, above all, attracted by the discovery of a material of which they did not know all the possible creative declinations.

For Lineapelle, Tuesday’s stopover at the Hongik University classrooms is the umpteenth in a very proactive relationship that began in 2019, and that has unfolded through the development of 3 creative projects. The value of the cultural and educational proposal is confirmed not only by the way in which students acquire skills and subsequently apply them in their creations. Indeed, thanks to this collaboration, Hongik was able to access some government funding.  Funds that have enabled them to put some state-of-the-art machinery in their classrooms. Training and supporting the creativity of the (near) future and its hunger for knowledge (seen on Tuesday at Hongik) also means this.
