Together with John Cloppenburg, a member of the P&C managing board, and the five finalists, she spoke about her commitment and the sponsorship program in place for up-and-coming designers. “I found the DfT award’s aim of long-term support particularly impressive, because success is not only a matter of design skill and creativity, but also of understanding how the business works,” the British designer explained.
