Bianca-Maria is a graduate of the prestigious Esmod International Fashion School in Munich and has worked with Hugo Boss.

The silver prize went to Hanako Geierhos, also of Germany. Hanako is currently studying for her doctorate at the Vienna Academy of Fine Art. Her design was an elegant, steel grey, corseted overcoat with folded collar.

Bronze was awarded to Russia's Elena Montingelli, a recent graduate of the Moscow College of Art Graphics. Her garment was a tightly belted, black sheared fur coat with satin edging.

All the young designers taking part in the REMIX design competition are the winners of their own national level design competitions, resulting in an outstanding level of design.

The REMIX competition was introduced in 2003 by the International Fur Trade Federation [IFTF], in collaboration with MIFUR, the Milan based international fur and leather exhibition.
