Leading Promotion / 21. May 2013
Several previous winners of our European Fashion Award FASH have been awarded by other contests. For example, Karen Scholz and Joan Tarragó Pampalona (FASH 2007) won 2008 the 1st Prize of the Apolda European Design Award. Melanie Gros (FASH 2008) and Annika Tutsch (FASH 2011) were decorated with a grant by the Wilhelm Lorch Foundation in 2010 and 2011.
But this spring our records were broken. Almost each of our winners of FASH 2013 was nominated for the Baltic Fashion Award. We are very glad that Tanja Schmidt and Philip Rudzinski won this prize in the beginning of May.
In addition, the successful team from the University of Applied Sciences and Arts Hannover recently was presented as one promotional prize winner in the category creation by Wilhelm Lorch Foundation. Besides the two of them, our winners Tim Labenda and Florian Wowretzko were also decorated with grants by the Wilhelm Lorch Foundation. Congratulations to all of them!
The team of SDBI is very pleased that its leading promotion is bearing such fruit. Maybe we can celebrate another success on July 3rd: Ciolacu Ioana Miron from Romania (2nd prize FASH 2011) has been nominated by Stella McCartney as Designer for Tomorrow.
