ADNAM Prize: The finalists

Take note

This year’s ADNAM finalists have been announced. The seven vying for the prestigious award are Fausto Puglisi, Iris van Herpen, Rad Hourani, Jean-Paul Lespagnard, Yiqing Yin, Steven Tai and Études Studio. Specifically, they're competing for a 250,000 Euro prize, along with a year of mentoring from luxury titan François-Henri Pinault, chairman and chief executive officer of luxury conglomerate Kering. Past victors of the respected reward have gone on to achieve international recognition, with the likes of Martin Margiela, Viktor & Rolf, Christophe Lemaire, Jeremy Scott, Gareth Pugh and, most recently, Alexandre Mattiussi to be counted among the chosen. This year’s judging panel - revamped to mark the award's 25-year anniversary - includes model Caroline de Maigret, Anne–Sophie von Claer, deputy managing editor of Le Figaro, and photographer Ellen von Unwerth.
