SAKURA COLLECTION NY 2022
About this event
The SAKURA COLLECTION aims to connect Japan’s traditional textile industry with young creators and professional designers from around the world to generate new ideas for the future. This time in NY, we will have a Fashion Show from professional designers and a Fashion Design Award presented to the students.
So far, we have connected 38 designers from 9 countries around the world with traditional Japanese textile production areas to create their works. Up-and-coming brands from 9 countries will present their works using 10 kinds of traditional Japanese materials in New York.
SAKURA COLLECTION has been holding a fashion design contest since 2012 to provide design students and young creators from all over the world with a venue for their activities.
The theme of this competition, ”SAKURA COLLECTION 2022 Fashion Design Award in New York”, which is its 34th edition, is recycled wool from Bishu in Aichi Prefecture.
Celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, Sakura Collection will hold this event at Japan Village ( 934 3rd Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11232) in New York.
