Conceptual Dutch designer Iris van Herpen has won the 2014 ANDAM prize, beating out talented nominees Fausto Puglisi, Steven Tai, Rad Hourani, Yiqing Yin, Études Studio, and Jean-Paul Lespagnard. Van Herpen, best known for her complex, hyper-sculptural, often futuristic wares, joins the ranks of such former winners as Alexandre Mattiussi, Giles Deacon, Richard Nicoll, and Gareth Pugh. A panel of judges including Ellen von Unwerth, Caroline de Maigret, Condé Nast France president Xavier Romatet, and Style.com’s own Nicole Phelps sat on the 2014 judges panel. Van Herpen has earned a €250,000 prize, a yearlong business mentorship courtesy of Kering’s François-Henri Pinault, and €10,000 worth of Swarovski crystals.
London-based designer Hakaan Yildirim, who was slated to show his Spring 2013 collection tomorrow in Paris, has been forced to call off his show because the clothes were lost by the courier company. The Turkish-born up-and-comer, who won the ANDAM Award in 2010 and debuted his Hakaan line at London fashion week the same year (with the likes of Kate Moss, Emmanuelle Alt, and Carine Roitfeld all in the front row), is reportedly remaking the show pieces for editors and buyers to view in the showroom. The clothes will be available for editorial requests as usual.
