In the running for the big award is Paris-based design collective Vêtements, Japanese label Anrealage, Pigalle Paris, Umit Beaman and Pallas Paris.
The winner will also have the opportunity to create a capsule collection with thecorner.com and $11,000 worth of Swarovski crystals, to make sure their creations are extra blingy. ANDAM also picked its finalists for its accessories prize – Hugo Matha, Annelise Michelson and Charlotte Chesnais. And for ANDAM’s first collections prize, Gauchère, Jour/ne, Etienne Deroeux, and LéaPeckre will compete against each other for a chance to win a mentorship, $99,000 and a spot in Paris’ Galleries Lafayette to show two collections.
Good luck to all the contenders!
