For years, Saga Furs has cooperated with several international design schools to support rising young talents. Latest competition for young designers called “Fashion Formula East – West”, organized by Omsk design school in Russia, ended few weeks ago simultaneously with the VIII International Festival of Art and Design. Every year the competition celebrates and promotes the talent of fashion design students, helping to kick-start their career in the fashion industry. The competition also helps establish and strengthen links between students, education institutions and the regional and national fashion industries.
Competition having participants from several cities in Russia, included various conferences and seminars. Saga Furs’ seminar presented the brand and Saga® product portfolio, auctions and technology related to crafting fur as well as the latest fur trend reports. More than 50 competing collections were shown on the catwalk.
“We have cooperated with design schools for many years and consider it very important to support young talents by providing them with information about fashion, trends and our unique product – fur”, tells Anastasia Kretova, the Field Representative at Saga Furs in Russia.
Winners of this competition were rewarded with a study trip to Saga Furs Design Centre, where the highly skilled fur craft professionals familiarize the students with the latest fur techniques. In addition to this the winners have a possibility to show their award winning collections on the catwalk of Chapeau fair in Moscow in August 2016.
