This week, we see how an economics graduate with no knowledge of fashion or the fashion industry launched her own label while bringing hope and livelihood to a group of women in India. Also, two different design competitions this week: Hella Jongerius leads a live public pitch to design a Camper shoe store interior in Berlin and a young student wins a national competition to design a cover for a legendary Dutch book. On the other side of the North Sea, design duo Kranen/Gille debut in London, then we head further east to Japan where an exhibition is building momentum that explores some cultural and design differences between Holland and Japan.
