Sandrina Fasoli, Christian Wijnants, C.Neeon, Felipe Oliveira Baptista and Swash were all awarded prizes at the festival d’Hyeres.

In addition to the grand prize all of the designers are given l8,000 EUROS to produce their next collection. I know every one of the designers in the selection if they did not pass through Hyeres I was on their jury at Royal Academy of Antwerp or at IFM or La Cambre. May the best man/woman win. Congratulations to you all and look at it this way, if you don’t win the 300,000 EUROS prize then at the very least your next collection has been paid for. In the words of Michel Mallard, the fact that you were selected makes you all winners.
