The semi-finalists showed great expertise in terms of craftsmanship and a strong commitment to sustainability. The finalists’ designs range from entirely hand-made collections to eveningwear, and included upcycled designs. Furthermore, two former semi-finalists of the Prize, Duran Lantink and Niccolò Pasqualetti, have reached the final. I am very grateful to the Experts for their involvement in this event.
