  • the best Project Presented Online by Yenny Adriana Garces Hernandez from Columbia.

“Indiscriminate” is a business bag that expresses its design in a twist of aesthetics, functionality, and emotions.

Instead, for the world of cycling, we find a multifunctional backpack, with three layers that can be easily removed while on the go, without having to stop to do so.

The “Clip on” evening bag, which is made of leather and metal, also focuses on a multifunctional concept.

Chin Tak Chak triumphed over the other three winners, and besides being granted access to the portal together with the other winners in each category (to surf the latest shoe and bag trends), he also won a special prize:  a scholarship worth 3,500 euro, which will give him the right to attend the “Bag Collection Design Course” at the Italian fashion training school, ARSUTORIA.
