The three winning projects.


1st Place: Morine Uramoto (Japanese) – “UNTITLED”


“Her authentic approach to the legacy of denim was remarkable. Her ability to inject clothes with the ideas of modern, urban living is what makes her designs relevant for today. But it is her clever designs nuances-for instance turing a skirt into a jacket, a pant into a top- that makes her clothes timeless and genderless.”


2nd Place: Da An (Chinese) – “FREE LOOP”


“His ability to transform work-wear denim and bring it to the luxury premium space, brings his creative dialogue at the forefront of fashion. His embellishments coupled with the use of lightweight denim, gave his design a sophisticated, high-end fashion appeal.”


3rd Place: Massimiliano Mucciarelli (Italian) – “THREE DIFFERENT ONES”


“The simplicity and versatility of his design brings traditional workwear elements into contemporary culture where funcion becomes sexy and style-effortless.”
