Huge thanks to @naomi_filmer @dai_rees @consorzioverapelle, I could join the CRAFT THE LEATHER 2019. Through the workshop @craft_the_leather, having experienced full immersion in the life and cycle of the Leather District I now realise how the vegetable-tanned Tuscan leather consortium is embedded in a productive cycle, supporting and protecting their environment at each stage of production. It was such a wonderful experience. Now my leather pieces for @craft_the_leather @consorzioverapelle are presented at @lineapellefair !!
The panel of experts included Antonella Bertagnin, creative director and “Trend Selection” coordinator at Lineapelle, considered to be one of the foremost and most trusted Italian trend forecasters in the field of footwear and leather goods and Cristina Mirri, shoe and accessory designer, illustrator, and product developer for a wide portfolio of international luxury fashion brands.

[A spiral dynamic] “The psychology of the human being is an unfolding, emergent, oscillating, spiralling process.” - Clare W. Graves My understanding from the psychological theory of Spiral Dynamic is that life’s spiral is a continuous and endless evolving process in interacting with surrounding conditions. The spiral visually manifests a theory, it describes motion and defines form. @hongji_ds @simhooni @seunghee_mua @prm_agency @celia__arias
The five criteria for the Jury were:
- Design inspired by qualities intrinsic to Veg-Tan Leather
- Innovative use of Veg-Tan Leather
- Excellent Aesthetics
- Story telling of the Collection/ Does the Collection engage?
