Budding fashion designers of ESMOD Dubai will display leather handbags at the 4th edition of Leatherworld Middle East (ME) 2018, beginning February 27. The design students will showcase an exclusive range of stylish and trendy handbags crafted from camel leather, demonstrating the relationship between fashion and leather, at the three-day fair.

"This year we’ve focused our work on leather bags. ESMOD Dubai has decided to showcase the difficult way of playing with layers and canvas, leather stripes, colours and shapes," Tamara Hostel, founder and CEO of ESMOD Dubai said. "The result is a creative range of stylish and trendy handbags, and if visitors to Leatherworld Middle East like them, they’ll recognise them once again after the fair at Polette, the ESMOD Incubator in City Walk 2, which showcases the realisations of our students."

"The whole process is very involved right from visualising to the final finishing of the creation, to imagine the final bags and to taste and stitch the different leather skins, most of which are made of camel skin. Add to that the research into the type of material to combine with the leather and the creative process behind forming and finalising the design. The trickiest part was the cutting of the leather, which is harder than expected and really difficult to control the cut and form. But the end result is worth all the effort," added Hostel.

More than 40 exhibitors from nine countries will participate at Leatherworld Middle East 2018, the region’s dedicated showcase of finished leather goods, from footwear, clothing, bags, wallets, and accessories, to premium corporate gifts, stationery, and household decorations.

"Leatherworld Middle East will continue to support the growth and development of the regional leather design and production industry by providing an influential platform for the work of the region’s most talented designers, fashion houses and tanneries. The display by the ESMOD Dubai design students was a wow factor at the last edition and we are looking forward to viewing the latest creations from our budding design gurus of tomorrow," Ahmed Pauwels, CEO of the show’s organiser Messe Frankfurt Middle East, said.
