The non-profit Stiftung der Deutschen Bekleidungsindustrie (German Fashion Industry Foundation or SDBI), presented the awards valued at a total of 80,000 Euro at the impressive Neue Museum (New Museum) in Berlin, one of UNESCO’s world heritage sites, SDBI said on its website. The ceremony was attended by 250 guests.
The six winning students and graduates used inspirations like archives, dreams or wanderlust to approach the subject of the European Fashion Award FASH 2015, “Freedom”.
Their collections are divergent from the classic, Euro-centric male image and set new standards of fashion. The winning collections trigger impulses for the standardised market, they get to the heart of our desires and herald a new era.
The high-level, global competition is open to design students from all sectors of design beginning with the fourth semester. A second category was open to graduate projects completed in 2014. The overall value of all prizes is 80,000 Euro. In addition to cash prizes of 10,000 Euro the students receive support for their activities and future careers.
A high-calibre jury selected the winners from the projects submitted by 141 participants from 27 countries. The evaluation was performed anonymously. (SH)
