LEXUS Design Award is a very prestigious award that started a few years back in 2013. The main objective of this award is to foster the growth of ideas that will contribute to helping young creatives to design a better future. Last year, 6 finalists were selected by LEXUS from over 79 countries and more than 2042 submissions worldwide. Aqsa Ajmal the young industrial design graduate of NUST SADA (School of Art, Design, and Architecture) was amongst the 6 finalists. This was the first time that any Pakistani has been selected for this prestigious award. Aqsa presented the idea of “Pursewit.” Pursewit is a sewing machine designed to provide even the visually impaired with the ability to sew clothes in a simplified sewing mechanism. The LEXUS Design Award was finally awarded to the idea “Open-Source Communities” by BellTower from Kenya. Other finalists were from China, Russia, the USA, and France & Italy,
