Class of 2017 – Studio NAFA

August 21, 2017

On Friday, August 18, Studio NAFA 2017 successfully wrapped at NAFA’s HQ in Toronto. This year, NAFA proudly hosted 17 students from 8 countries including China, Korea, Japan, Turkey, Greece, England, Argentina and Canada.

Each student brought positive energy and a different perspective to the intensive week of technical training and practice. Led by fashion designer, Farley Chatto, the 2017 project theme was “Breaking Dimensions”. Senior Fur Technician, John Kehagias lent hands-on technical knowledge and expertise to students with varied levels of fur machine experience. Each student interpreted the theme in a unique and imaginative way that became an inspiring lesson to each participant.

In addition to studio time, the students also visited Parkinson’s Mink Ranch, African Fashion Week at the Royal Ontario Museum and Niagara Falls.

It was truly an international experience. Well done Class of 2017!
