The award ceremony of the prestigious international competition organized by the International Fur Federation (IFF) and supported by Vogue Talents took place on March the 3rd.
For the first time in its 14-year history, the edition of this year revealed its 12 finalists and their 36 models during a presentation: a conservatory complete with tropical vegetation was the evocative background of the show.
The 2016 edition gave the main prize to the young Israeli designer Daniel Kohavi with her collection inspired by Claire Morgan’s art installations and, in particular, with a storybook dress characterized by inserts of feathers, threads and rabbit, mink and fox furs combined with other organic materials. The Turkish designer Ali Koç received the Silver Prize thanks to a black/white mix in Rex Rabbit and raccoon with an optical effect, while Edda Gimnes (United Kingdom) won the Bronze Award with a project of “illustrated” garments made in black and white Scandinavian mink and inspired by Baudelaire’s poems.
The result was decided by the jury made up of Sara Maino, senior editor of Vogue Italia, Veronica Etro, creative director of Etro Woman collections, the American blogger and photographer Tamu McPherson, Leah Perez, head of the fashion design department at Shenkar and Lory Yedid, partner of Value Search. The other 9 finalists were: Santiago Navarro (Argentina), Xuanxuan Li (China), Joona Rautiainen & Anna Sarasoja (Finland), Sugimoto Chiharu (Japan), Liesa Tops (the Netherlands), Laura Farinacci (Switzerland), Natalia Eyres (United Kingdom), Ari Naranchimeg (USA) and Louisa Øgaard Reinholt Jakobsen (Denmark), specialized in fashion textile and winner of the special award given by the audience.
