Student Designers – ILOE 2018

The next generation of fashion designers understand that in order to stand apart from the rest and deliver a product with distinction, fur has to be a part of the mix. With that in mind young design students make the pilgrimage year-after-year to the Show to network and meet the movers and the shakers from the fur industry and source materials for design. The industry itself recognizes the paramount importance of nurturing young design talent, and sponsors an annual International ReMix Student Design Competition to find the next generation of fur fashion designers.
