The 1st Sympatex Urban Rain Couture Award has gone to Ursula Laudien (first prize), Marcel Herrig (second prize) und Ute Jensen (third prize). The awars ceremony took place in Berlin recently

VDMD e.V. or the Network of German Fashion and Textile Designers created this design award to celebrate its 30th anniversary. VDMD Managing Director Mara Michel, and Managing Director of Sympatex, Michael Kamm, honoured the prizewinners during a glamorous gala evening at the Atrium of Deutsche Bank Berlin. VDMD Design Ambassador Thomas Rath presented the award in the name of the eleven members of the prestigious jury of experts from the fields of fashion, design and journalism.

The participating fashion designers had to create innovative and trendy “all day – all weather” rainwear that would meet today's demands of an urban lifestyle and working style. For the realisation, Sympatex Technologies provided them with a wide range of 100 percent waterproof and windproof as well as optimally breathable Sympatex laminates.

Sympatex Technologies is a leading producer of high-tech functional materials in clothing, footwear, accessories and technical fields of application.

“As the ecological alternative among functional textile specialists and premium ingredient brand, we can offer our customers highly functional and at the same time ecological materials,” explained Michael Kamm. “It becomes crystal clear that function and sustainability are both increasingly important for fashion brands. So we are very pleased to be the patron of this award. We are very excited about the results that were presented tonight. Above all, the diversity of creative ideas and the transformation of our products into trendy fashion outfits have been fascinating,” he said. (SH)
