ITS Trieste 2014: Winners announced

We are happy to announce Yasuto Kimura as the winner of the SHOWstudio prize at ITS Trieste 2014! 

The designer who's collection comes from a Japanese cultural and historical background, challenges the conventions of business wear, redefining the working men's outfit with a sense humor and functionality. The SHOWstudio prize will enable Kimura to create a fashion film of his collection together with the SHOWstudio team and under the mentorship of Nick Knight himself. The featured garments will also be made available in the SHOWstudio Shop.

Further winners of the contest that ended last night with the design finalists' fashion show as well as the award ceremony were Katherine Roberts-Wood who took home the prize of Collection of the Year, as well as CSM schooled Anita Hirlekar, who was awarded the Fashion Special Prize.

RCA graduate Zoe Waters won the Diesel prize, consisting of a 6-month internship with Nicola Formichetti and his team, on top of a cash prize of no less than € 25,000.

SHOWstudio congratulates all the winners and is looking forward to translate Kimura's creativity and talent into a fashion film.
