The Sakura Collection Committee has selected designers and young designers (students, etc.) from Japan and Southeast Asia to create clothing designs and dresses using traditional Japanese textile materials, incorporating the cultures of their respective countries and ethnicities. Additionally, through this project, the Sakura Collection Committee has created an opportunity for designers and young designers to visit Japan to visit workshops of traditional crafts and to experience Japanese culture. The created works are not only for display purposes, but will aim for brand development. The brand will be sold at cultural exchange bases (local shops) in Japan and Southeast Asia, and will be distributed for the purposes of using traditional techniques to explore how they have rooted themselves in modern life, and to find new methods of utilization. Simultaneously, the Sakura Collection Committee has also supported and conducted cultural exchanges between young creators in Southeast Asia and Japan.
