South Korean designer Younchan Chung has been named winner of the International Fashion Showcase Award. Two other designers, Katerina Plamitzerova from the Czech Republic and Vanessa Schindler from Switzerland also received special mentions, while the International Fashion Showcase Country Award was given to India for its exhibit ‘The Indian Pastoralists’.

Mercedes-Benz also presented the winning designer with the unique opportunity to showcase his collection at Milan Fashion Week.

“Thank you for the amazing prize. What news! I am so honoured to be a part of IFS 2017, and really appreciate the opportunity to spread the word of the-sirius thanks to the British Council, BFC and Mercedes-Benz. I am really happy to win this prize as I only started the-sirius in Seoul Fashion Week last year, but I have dreamed of being a part of the global fashion industry,” said Chung.

The International Fashion Showcase Curation Award was presented to Wojciech Dziedzic and Agnieszka Jacobson of Poland, with special mentions for Julie HJ Lee of Korea and Roxanne Chen of Taiwan.

The International Fashion Showcase Country Award was given to India for its exhibition ‘The Indian Pastoralists’, with a special mention for the Chile and Czech Republic exhibitions. (AR)
