Last year I entered a competition called Remix, held by the International Fur Federation and is a competition in fur design. I had made some fur pieces in collaboration with Eggert furrier which is an Icelandic furrier, for my graduation collection.
I was chosen among 9 others to compete in the competition which was held during fashion week in Milan earlier this year.
Everybody had 3 pieces, one full fur look which would be the main look that you showed to the judges during your presentation and two fur pieces that could be fur accessories or fur as the trim.
We started by going one by one in front of the judged to present our pieces by telling them our inspiration, technique, what kind of fur we had used and so on.
Our models then went on stage where we all waited for the winners to be announced.
The top 3 places would then get to show their 3 looks at the fur fashion show which was part of the Milan fashion week.
I was awarded the silver winner :)
So the reason I am telling you all this is not just to brag about myself but to tell you about my trip next week.
My price from the competition was to go to a seminar in Denmark where I would learn everything about fur and fur making. So next week I will be heading to Denmark for the seminar and I am really excited to see how it will turn out.
And of course I will tell you guys all about it, so stay tuned ;)
