Graduate Fashion Week winner designs new Cosmolite Limited Edition

After taking the win at the Samsonite International Catwalk Competition during the Graduate Fashion Week in June, Chou Yun Ting got to design her very own Cosmolite Limited Edition.

The Samsonite International Catwalk Competition in London gives the world’s leading fashion university students the opportunity to showcase their collections at an international level, culminating with the very best collection being awarded a £1,000 prize and the opportunity to design a Cosmolite Limited Edition suitcase for Samsonite. Chou Yun Ting captivated judges with her innovation, garment craftsmanship, and harmony between shape and body. The result is a very innovative and sophisticated design with straight lines in well-balanced colours. The collection will be available in several European markets from October 2015 onwards.

“We are delighted that Chou Yun Ting styled the next limited edition of Cosmolite with the same innovation and impact that set her apart at Graduate Fashion Week”, noted Edouard Wattel, Director Communications of Samsonite Europe. “The Cosmolite is extremely popular amongst fashionistas and stylish jetsetters.  We are convinced that this design - as with all previous limited editions – will become a real must-have for the chic and expressive traveller. A suitcase is increasingly becoming part of people’s personal style, similar to a handbag or an accessory. The right piece of luggage can convey a signature look and expresses the traveller’s personality.”
