Dear Diane and Shaded Viewers // 

This past weekend my dear friend Bram Jespers, Head of the Fashion Department at the Royal Academy of Gent / KASK in Belgium asked if I would sit on and organize his international jury. With bright eyes I called upon my friends and working colleagues from several of Europe's most fashionable ports: from Stockholm the infamous Margareta van den Bosch – creative advisor to H&M (noted for heading all their designer collaborations), from Copenhagen Anne-Christine Persson – VP of Development to Copenhagen Fashion Week, from Paris Thibaut Victor Wychowanok – Deputy Editor at Numero Magazine and the dame who needs no introduction Ms. Betony Vernon.  

The jury and I met with three graduating MA students and nine graduating BA students, please note some of the highlights.
