The annual Design a Bag competition continued this year but had to be held on line. There were three finalists and they were interviewed online and the interviews, the short results show and the videos from all three were shown as part of the interview process.
All of these including the three videos are on the APLF YouTube channel.
The winning bag was designed by Mary Chan who is currently studying in London. She called it Second Skin as she designed it around a concept of comfortable body contours. This was perfect for the 2020 theme: Mirror to the Soul, Mind & Body
She deliberately chose a very natural vegetable tanned leather for the bag and her video neatly describes how and why she designed it. It is very clear from the video that she has taken the time to understand the virtue of vegetable leather and its perfect suitability for so many types of article.
