Judging Feedback

Buttons are unique item for these charity accessories and the Winner and Judge's Pick gives us some ideas for how to develop them for fashion. The color red, the button-hole design and the concept of thread symbolizing connection are what led us to this decision.

We are thankful that so many designers sent their warm thoughts to Japan in such a short amount of time, it is really encouraging or us in Japan.

UNESCO's selection for Honorable Mention is "Hug to Heal".

In addition to being aesthetically very original and creative, we feel that this entry conveys with a beautiful simplicity the solidarity, concern and longing to help that is felt by so many people across the world.
