Graduate Design Awards - The winners

On Wednesday night we had the amazing opportunity to celebrate our inaugural Graduate Design Awards at The Hospital Club.

What a night....
Expect the unexpected seems to be the most appropriate way to describe it!

The night was filled with performance art curated by Nathalie Levi including contributions from Ilka Leukefeld, Jenny Edbrooke, Jonny Reed, Levantes Dance Theatre, Marnie Hollande, Neesha Champaneria, Stephanie Douet and Tiina Tuomisto.

The evening programme was topped off with amazing live music by The Neutronics and the fantastic music/ visual combination by the VJs Airflux from Milan and DJ Rowdy Superst*r.

However, the true stars of the evening were the first winners of our Graduate Design Awards!

Our cordial congratulations to...

Domingo Rodriguez

who convinced our panel of judges with his beautiful, soft menswear collection

Victoria Delany

whose colourful candlesticks truly shined in the category Product Design

Mayuko Yamamura

whose delicate handknitted silver and mohair collar nearly "spoke for itself".

Mayuko unfortunately couldn't attend in person and her friend Toshi represented her in front of the judges and the audience.

We would like to thank our judges Anoushka Ducas of Anoushka Jewellery and co-founder of Links of London, Lucia van der Post, founding editor of Financial Times’ How To Spend It and Stephanie Wheatley previously of Alexander McQueen and Matthew Williamson, who supported Henry Graham of Wolf & Badger in choosing the winners!

Last but not least we want to say a big "Thank you" to all participating finalists...

... and everyone who came. It wouldn't have been such a wonderful evening without you!
