Launched in January 2012, the HM Design Award brings together Europe’s leading design schools each year, with the aim of discovering new designers and helping them launch internationally.
Back for 2015, the competition is looking very tight since the announcement and release of the 8 finalists’ pieces last Tuesday. This year’s winner was designer Eddy Anemian, who was able to sell his collection from 23 October in H&M shops. This year’s edition, which will take place in January, will be made up of an exceptional jury including Lily Allen, Luella Bartley, design director of Marc by Marc Jacobs, Lucinda Chambers, fashion director of British Vogue, Paula Goldstein di Principe, creative director of H&M, Tommy Ton, street style photographer, Angelo Flaccavento, freelance fashion critic, Justin O’Shea, purchasing director for Mytheresa. com, Ann-Sofie Johansson, head of design new development at H&M, and Margareta van den Bosch, creative consultant at H&M.
