Leather degree with BCN Concerie: the students' work at the fair

Three projects for a “leather degree” land at Lineapelle 100. BCN Concerie (Santa Croce sull’Arno) accompanied three students on their final study path. It did so by providing them with the materials, as well as supporting them in their use. Collaborating with BCN Concerie were two young men who completed a three-year degree in Fashion Design and Multimedia Arts (Fashion Design curriculum) at the IUAV University of Venice. And a student who completed the Undergraduate Fashion Designer course at Polimoda. The three young people have chosen tannery materials to design and create leather clothing collections. The outfits, we said, will be on display at the company’s booth during the three days of the 100th edition of Lineapelle (Fieramilano Rho, 20-22 September 2022).

Space for students

“BCN Concerie wants to dedicate space and time to students,” commented Roberto Lupi, owner of the company together with his brother Renzo, “who have completed their course of studies and used BCN leather in their collections. This way, we give them a voice and concreteness”. This is not the first time the company has collaborated in training projects. But this time, it wanted to give them even more visibility, welcoming them into its exhibition space at one of the most important trade fairs in the sector.

The experience in the tannery

“I chose the leathers in the BCN showroom, touching and testing each sample until I found the most suitable thickness, brightness and yield of the product for the final outfits,” said Rebecca di Fazio, a recent Polimoda graduate. “All this was also thanks to the BCN team, who were able to advise me on the right type of leather as soon as they saw my designs and understood my research. Working with leather has been a unique experience”.

Graduating in leather

“Being able to work with such a precious and malleable material as leather was a great opportunity,” said Caterina Dal Bianco, a student at IUAV. “It allowed me to get to grips with assembly methods and processes that I did not know”. Her fellow student, Giammarco Muschio, also said it was a new and stimulating experience: “When I saw and touched the selected leather for the first time, I already imagined the wearability of the garment and all the details needed to enhance the aesthetic delicacy of the material”.
