General evaluation of the 3rd FPT screening board

Having reached the third time, I judged with a slightly different point of view than the previous 2 times, which was leaned towards women’s. I judged this time, conscious of trying to select a brand which can convey the now of Tokyo fashion.

Your reason for selecting the winner of the 3rd Takuya Morikawa(TAAK designer) FPT Award

At the second screening, hearing the designer’s thoughts on textiles, his interpretation of the important things he learned from the designers of the brands he formally worked for and how he conveys these points, all the judges were extremely moved. It made me confident that, in addition to basics in production, he will show good cost performance achieved only because of his efforts in building a sure relationship with factories, and that Mr. Morikawa will show us a presentation which will stand up to the tides of today’s men’s fashion.

Your impression of having seen the 3rd award winner, Mr. Ryota Iwai’s (AURALEE) collection presentation at Paris, triumphant return event at Tokyo, and activities after receiving the award

Right after being awarded the FPT, Mr. Iwai seemed unsure of whether he will continue overseas presentations, but he has decided to continue doing an overseas presentation for 2020 A/W in some other form. It seems their overseas business has increased also, which is happy news to me too.
