Jonathan Stern from the Shenkar Engineering and Design College, Israel, with his collection, Variations of Masculinity, captivated the audience at tonight's 2009 iD Dunedin Fashion Week Emerging Designer Awards and was awarded this year's Life Pharmacy top prize. As this year's winner, Jonathan takes away $5000 in prize money.

Nadeesha Godamunne, Auckland University of Technology, New Zealand, also received top honours as recipient of the highly sought-after Mittelmoda prize, which allows direct entry to show the Mittelmoda Fashion Competition in Italy this September.

The 900-strong, capacity crowd was wowed and delighted by the standard of this year's international line up.

Key Points
• The Dunedin City Council second place prize and $3000 was awarded to Cem Cako, Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerpen, Belgium, while Hani Sagiv,Shenkar Engineering and Design College, Israel, won the SeJuice third prize and $1000. The judges describe both collections as outstanding, showing remarkable creativity and skill.

• The Pacific Blue Emerging Designer Travel Prize (including two return flights for two to Rarotonga) was awarded to Liz Ting, Massey University, New Zealand, and the Pacific Blue Lucky Boarding Pass prize was won by Aucklander, Jane Kennelly.

• The 2009 event attracted the most entries ever seen in the event's five-year history. More than 100 applications were received from 11 countries, with the 28 finalists representing: New Zealand, Australia, Belgium, India, Israel, Italy, Sweden and Taiwan.

• Judges for the Emerging Designer Awards 2009 included special guest designer Francis Hooper, co-founder and chief designer of WORLD; Margi Robertson, Fashion Designer and Director of Nom*D; Stefano Sopelza, Mittelmoda Fashion Award Project Supervisor, Italy; Ross Gamble, Fashion Consultant; and, Katie Newton, fashion and beauty editor for the weekly Sunday Star-Times Magazine.
