The human imagination is powerful. What kind of reality can we create with this power? Can it be used for doing good or bad? What is fashion able to do in the face of climate crisis, pandemics, and war? The FASHION FRONTIER PROGRAM was established in 2021 by fashion designer Yuima Nakazato (JP), under the belief that to seek fame and educate future fashion designers, who have the courage and ambition to overcome these situations will lead us to a better society. Age, gender, race … Anyone can apply to this program. FASHION FRONTIER PROGRAM is an opportunity not only for the participants but for all of us to learn and think about garments, to raise our social awareness, and to encourage us to move into a new era.
