And the day of the award ceremony has come. On Friday morning, live on Lineapelle’s social networks and in connection with Seoul, the 4 K Leather Creativity Awards were presented. They represent the epilogue of the second edition of a very high level training course that Lineapelle has developed in collaboration with Hongik University in Seoul.
Lineapelle meets Seoul
The creative project bore the title of RETHINK. Where the suffix RE intercepts a series of extremely topical values. In other words, as Lineapelle explains: “REcycle (recycle), REusable (reusable), REinterpretation (reinterpretation), REcreate (recreate), REinvent (reinvent) and REconnect (reconnect)”. The award ceremony held on Friday represents the conclusion of a path that (as we have told here) was able to overcome, in 2020, the barriers imposed by the pandemic. Arriving to the results of absolute interest, and evident conceptual quality.
The winners of the K Leather Creativity Award
Two categories, Fashion Design and Industrial Design. Two winners for each, divided among the 2 semesters of distance learning.
For the 1st semester in the Fashion Design area, Kim Min Ju won with Coexistence, a “braided leather corset that offers a modern interpretation of feminine elegance” (photo on the right).
For the 2nd semester in the Fashion Design area, Lee Mi Sun wins with Micro Mobility Driver Outfit. In other words, a clothing project that meets the needs of smart, next-generation urban mobility (photo on the left).
The first prize in the Industrial Design area, for the first semester of training, went to Chung So Hee, with Celi Leather Table. The concept expresses the “leather material” in a very original way in the context of furnishing accessories (photo below, center).
Finally, for the second semester in the Industrial Design area, Park Joo Hee won with Princess Baridegi, a project with an artisanal matrix that turns into a container of stories.
