(MENAFN - The Peninsula) The National Museum of #Qatar opened yesterday an exhibition featuring the ten final design pieces of Qatari and Brazilian students at the recently concluded "Kheit" competition held as part of the Qatar #Brazil 2014 Year of Culture.

On view at the Virginia Commonwealth University in #Qatar (VCUQ) until July 1, the exhibition will travel afterwards to the Museu Belas Artes de So Paulo (MUBA - Belas Artes Museum in So Paulo) and will be open to the public in September.

The expo celebrates the two winners of the contest namely Kinda Morshed from #Qatar and Carolina Tonnetti dos Santos from Brazil.

Held in partnership with VCUQ and the Centro Universit¡rioBelasArtes de So Paulo, Qatar's international student fashion competition called "Kheit" - Abic word for "thread" - offered an opportunity for students from selected universities in #Qatar and #Brazil to research women's and men's wear from each country, and create and interpret cultural heritage through art and design.


The competition was held between February and March and participating students designed pieces that incorporate contemporary heritage styles of both countries.

The competition aimed at increasing engagement between the people of #Qatar and #Brazil in the spirit of innovation, openness and learning in of fashion. As a legacy project, "Kheit" will be a competition held annually with a different country as a way of sharing knowledge and fostering cultural exchange and dialogue between institutions and individuals in culture, heritage, arts and design.
