Wataru Tominaga winner of Hyeres Festival 16
As at each edition, Première Vision once again welcomed the 10 finalists last February. These young designers were able to meet the exhibitors and manufacturers of the Première Vision show. Depending on their projects, they were able to choose their yarns, fabrics or accessories. They were also accompanied during the making of their collection.
The audacity, the graphic strength and strong visual impact of the collection of Wataru Tominaga, supported by his research on materials and technical clothing convinced unanimously the jury. This work seems to exceeds the limits of male / female equality to create a positive dynamic.
Wataru Tominaga wins:
– a grant of 15,000 euros offered by Première Vision and a high level of visibility at both Première Vision New-York and Première Vision Paris shows
– a collaborative project with some of CHANEL’s Métiers d’art, up to 15,000 euros
– a collaboration with Petit Bateau on one or more of its emblematic products
The Chloè prize goes to Hanne Jurmu et Anton Vartianinen duo from Finland. In ‘an area of climate changes’, Hanne Jurmu and Anton Vartiainen show that we can create beauty and poetry with what is considered junk. With this collection, they arouse a romantic feeling.
