The annual Dorchester Collection Fashion Prize, which is a £24,000 prize awarded to an up and coming fashion designer to help them on their way to business success has been presented in Paris to French design duo, Augustin Teboul.
The designers are German-born Annelie Augustin and French Odély Teboul, and their work is characterised by a Gothic, otherworldly charm, plentiful texture and embellishment, and any colour you like, as long as it is black.
The designers did well to impress the august panel of fashion heavyweight judges, who included Kenzo Takada, founder of Kenzo; Bruno Frisoni, artistic director of Roger Vivier; Lorenz Baumer, designer of Louis Vuitton jewellery; and Nathalie Rykiel of the label Sonia Rykiel.
Said the winners of their latest accolade; Its absolutely amazing, were overwhelmed by the result, we were so nervous to present in front of such a prestigious panel of judges whom weve always admired. We still cant believe it,
