The winner is announced!

Yesterday in London, Hannah Jinkins was announced as the winner of the H&M Design Award 2016. Jinkins, a graduate from the Royal College of Art, London, was selected from eight finalists by an international jury that included amongst others Kate Bosworth, Olivier Rousteing and Nick Knight. As the H&M Design Award winner, Jinkins receives a one-year mentorship from H&M, a prize sum of €50,000 and the opportunity to develop her winning collection to be sold in selected H&M stores as well as online in autumn 2016.

Eight finalists selected from 40 of the world’s most respected design schools took part in a fashion show yesterday at The Orangery in Kensington Palace, London. Each finalist presented four looks from their graduation collections to an audience that included the jury and, for the first time, invited members of the global fashion media.
