Winner announced for IAF International Student Awards 2012
Nov '12
The International Apparel Federation (IAF), in cooperation with the Fashion Education Network (part of the FashionUnited group), has announced the IAF International Student Awards 2012. UK fashion design student Rebecca White (20) has been awarded the IAF International Student Awards 2012 in the category Fashion Design. The Fashion Branding award is awarded to UK marketing student Sophie Cannings (21).

Both students were carefully selected among 4 nominated candidates in their chosen category. In total, students from 64 different fashion institutes around the world competed in these awards, which resulted in 84 complete assignments from students from 22 countries.

The judging panel was composed of the following industry insiders:

  • Felicia Perez, Head Design, Supertrash
  • Julia Hengstermann, HR, Diesel
  • Angelique Westerhof, Director, Dutch Fashion Foundation
  • Matthijs Crietee, Deputy Secretary General, IAF

Rebecca White will receive a paid internship placement in the design department of SuperTrash in Amsterdam. Sophie Cannings will receive a paid internship placement at Diesel in Dusseldorf. Both students will have their work published by FashionUnited in 12 countries accompanied by an interview.

Both IAF and FashionUnited aim to build bridges between education and the industry. IAF offers educational institutes and their students unique access to a global network of apparel companies. The IAF International Student Awards are an effective way to visibly attract top talent and connect them to top global apparel companies.

IAF is pleased with the relaunch of the IAF International Student Awards. In line with the vision of the IAF, plans are already being made to include a Product Development category in the 2013 edition.
