With the announcement during last year’s fur fair Fur Expo, Ukraine joined the ranks of countries in which NAFA sponsors student design competitions. This contest is jointly hosted with Kyiv National University of Technologies & Design (KNUTD) and was open to students throughout Ukraine.

As the first fur design competition in the country of international standards, there was keen rivalry to obtain one semi-finalist spots that would result in the production of the garment and the chance to go on to win one of the coveted top awards.

The first round of elimination narrowed the selection of sketches to 58. From these, representatives of NAFA and KNUTD chose the 5 semi-finalists. Tykafurlux, one of Ukraine’s premiere fur manufacturers, produced these garments in a variety of NAFA Northern wild furs as designated by the students.

Oksana Moroz, Eastern Europe Marketing Director at NAFA, will travel to Kyiv to join other industry and fashion VIPs for the final round of voting, which will take place on October 29, 2014 at 12:30 pm at KNUTD.

First and second place winners will be awarded an all expense paid trip to Studio NAFA in Toronto, Canada for a Creative Design Fur Workshop.
