You are all winners. Marc Jacobs encouraged the five newcomer designers before the big DfT award show at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week yesterday started. And, yes, he is right! All of the young designers are unique, so different from each other and so very good! It must have been a hard decision for the jury. On the catwalk each collection looked just as brilliant as they are and the jury had to decide quickly. You could tell by seeing their faces: „Oh, but he was also good…“ Or: „Actually, I loved her collection as well.“
Then, approximately 10 minutes later, Marc Jacobs was on stage with an envelope and the winner’s name in it. Jacobs quickly opened it and then announced the name of the designer who’s collection was the last one in the running order: Leandro Cano! With his stunning outfits he impressed the audience. During his show, people around me went crazy taking pictures of it. His all-night-working paid off. Congratulations!
After the show P&C invited to a Reception at the nice roof top of Berlin’s China Club with Champagne and tempura. Marc Jacobs – not getting tired – encouraged his beloved designers again and again. He really appreciates the work of all of them. And, yes, they are all winners. Good luck to all five of you – we will hear about you, for sure.
