Eastpak Artist Studio (EAST)
EAST brings together some of the world’s most talented and creative minds to lend their interpretation to the iconic Eastpak Padded Pak’r®.
Given the task of “customizing” a special-edition blank Eastpak backpack, past participants of the Eastpak Artist Studio have come up with some of the most original and inspiring creations imaginable. This year, that same concept will be taken to all-new heights due to a star-studded cast that includes some of the biggest names in fashion. In other words, the fourth edition of EAST promises to attract a lot of attention from every corner of the fashion world.
The proceeds will be donated to the charity organization, Designers Against Aids, to raise awareness about HIV / AIDS, the need for safe sex and fight for the acceptance and equal rights of seropositive people around the world.
In collaboration with ArtsThread, Eastpak also gave young, upcoming designers the chance to stand alongside well-established names with the EAST Wildcard competition.
After hundreds of submissions, Eastpak chose 3 amazing finalists who each got the chance to create a unique bag from a special-edition “blank” Padded Pak’r® backpack. But there can only be 1 winner who gets to participate in the Eastpak Artist Studio!
Which finalist will get to mix it with some of the biggest names in fashion?
