• Juki Young Designers Competition 2017

This year JUKI decided to participate in a local Lithuanian competition of young designers. We wanted to support young creative fashion designers in Europe, and give them the opportunity to show their creations to the world.

The competition was really substantial with 15 collections presented and each with 5 up to 7 models. All the partisipants presented were extreamly innovative, creative and showing a new approach towards the fashion for next season.

The winner of the JUKI YOUNG DESIGNERS COMPETITION is Margarita Meškytė from Vilnius Design University. Her use of different types of fabric and inspiring stitching took her over the line to win the main prize of the event. We are sure that she will continue her journey with sewing and designing with the main prize  - a JUKI F-600 machine, the top tier of the household sewing machines on the market.

The judge’s attention was also caught by the winner of the special prize -  Toma Stašytė from Kaunas University. Her collection drew inspiration from Japanese Samurai and in her version it’s a strong, powerful woman. The collection was praised for being very consistent and minimalistic.

We would like to congratulate all of the young designers who took part of the JUKI YOUNG DESIGNERS COMPETITION, we are looking forward for your next collections and wish you good luck!
