The first International Real Leather. Stay Different. Student Design Competition is now closed.
Congratulations to Emily Omesi, a BFA undergraduate of Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City, who has won the inaugural competition with her thought-provoking leather jacket design entitled ‘Bacterial Genetics’, inspired by scans of infectious diseases.
With entries from more than 100 universities from 36 countries around the world, representing 58 nationalities in total, we’ve gone truly international!
You impressed us with a wide range of entries of exceptional calibre that made selecting the winner incredibly difficult.
As the winner of the Real Leather. Stay Different. International Student Design Competition, Emily not only takes home the RLSD trophy, but also has had her design professionally made and featured on the cover of acclaimed international fashion magazine, Rollacoaster and modelled by Sano Turdiev.
