Ultrasuede® Looking Great in Bunka Fashion Graduate University Fashion Week Show

Bunka Fashion Graduate University (BFGU) is a graduate school specializing in fashion. Since 2018, Toray has provided Ultrasuede® materials for BFGU students to use in their graduation projects. The BFGU Fashion Week Show had to take place online this year due to COVID-19, but featured many design creations that made good use of Ultrasuede®. The designs from students utilized Ultrasuede®’s advanced features, demonstrating great flexibility in their ideas and remarkably creative designs. The designs were well-crafted, meeting all professional standards, helping to make the show a big success. The students’ youthful enthusiasm and passion for fashion came across even if the show had to be held online. This year, all the participants in the show were foreign students who showed a good understanding of Ultrasuede® materials and features. They were extremely involved in creating their high-quality designs, right from the initial lecture regarding materials to the final presentation of their designs. Several students who used Ultrasuede® expressed their intentions to continue working with this fabric after graduating from BFGU. They were quick to appreciate all the flexible design possibilities of Ultrasuede® materials, which allow cutoff configurations, printing through post treatment, and many other unique design options. Through its product Ultrasuede®, Toray aims to conduct a business that contributes to an enriched society, and pass it on to the next generation. By living up to this vision, Toray has been providing fashion and design-related educational institutes in Japan as well as abroad with exclusive Ultrasuede® materials and related informational resources without any charge since 2016. By doing this, Toray is committed to fostering young and talented designers. Ultrasuede® keeps evolving toward a future full of “Beautiful Possibilities.”
