BEAUTERUNWAY was invited to FENDI FATTO A MANO (made by hand in Italian) for the Future design grand showcase at the FENDI boutique at Takashimaya Shopping Centre to witness FENDI craftsman and artisan, Stefanus and Singaporean designer and artist, Donna Ong working on the first Fatto a Mano For The Future event in South East Asia, following a series of successful features in London, New York, Rome, Milan, Seoul and Hangzhou.
The collaboration between the Fendi artisans and the various designers represents a merging of heritage and future in a world of tradition and experimentation, emphasizes creativity with function and research shown clearly in fashion and design.
I love the vibrant colours of Fendi’s Famous Selleria leather. The ultra buttery soft Selleria leather texture is derived through a special treatment process using dedicated hand made artisanal craftsmanship at Fendi artisan workshop.
Fendi craftsman Stefanus and Donna Ong worked together in tandem at FENDI Takashimaya Shopping Centre Boutique to create a conceptual art piece with Italian and Peranakan influence using Fendi’s Famous Selleria leather in different shades starting from FENDI discarded materials. This involves sewing the buttery soft Selleria leather using dedicated hand made artisanal craftsmanship onto the masterpiece.
Fendi Selleria leather in colourful hues are cut into circular, rectangle, hexagon, oval and various shapes and hand sewn stitch by stitch individually on the light brown Fendi Selleria leather shaped like a cow to create colour contrast texture and designs including summer butterflies and flowers of Peranakan influence.
Gold, Yellow and Tan leather are cut into strips, squares, rectangles and circles and sewn onto the main piece of leather to form the outline of a cow.
