BEST OF APLF AWARDS

About The Awards

The first Best of APLF Awards (BOAA) was held in March 2004 to mark the 20th anniversary of APLF fair. The organisers saw the need to raise the bar for all exhibitors by creating an awards program that would encourage the pursuit of excellence in design and quality.

THE MAKING OF THE BOAA TROPHY

“o,o Inspirations & Work in progress”

Ten years ago, APLF Ltd asked to design a trophy for a new event at Fashion Access and APLF: the Best Of APLF Awards (BOAA).

Olivier Guillemin and Olivier Védrine dreamed up a surrealistic, sensual object that does not look like a traditional trophy.

Their inspiration came from a piece of leather, first stylised and then expressed in an innovative material – Dacryl acrylic crystal – in APLF’s emblematic blue. A small aperture turned it into a monocle, as a poetic reference to APLF’s visionary view of the leather and fashion industries.

The trophies look identical, but they are all different. Each piece is unique because it is hand made. So they symbolise creativity, excellence, rarity and craftsmanship.

About APLF

We bring leather, material and fashion businesses together: an opportunity to meet and greet face to face. We bring them from all parts of the world so that they can find fresh partners, discover new customers or suppliers and keep ahead of industry developments.

 

We organise a number of trade exhibitions which focus on fashion and lifestyle: sectors that are constantly in flux, so visitors and exhibitors alike need to be constantly aware both of the changes around them and those forecast for coming seasons.
