Last week 12 emerging designers attended a unique learning experience with two professors of the London College of Fashion within the context of the first Madrid Design Festival. Under the wing of the MBA in Fashion Artefacts professors, the designers where challenged to use leather to build an artefact that enabled them to carry an object, but not any kind of object, but something that kept a symbolic meaning for them, After three days of hard work, the different creative points of view, together with the diverse range of techniques and experiences, resulted in 12 varied artefacts that started with the same premise: jewels, making and the body.
