A person’s imagination has power. What kind of reality can we create with the power that can be utilized for good or bad? What can fashion do in the face of the reality of climate crisis, pandemics and war? This program was established in 2021 with the idea that discovering, praising, and nurturing future fashion designers with courage and aspirations will be the driving force for not only the fashion industry but also society as a whole to change for the better. I did.
