The St. Petersburg State University of Industrial Technology and Design organised the Admiralty Needle contest for young fashion designers in Saint Petersburg. The jury was international including fashion-focused figures from Russia, Japan, China, Germany, Denmark, Hungary, Italy and France. CPM – Collection Première Moscow was also on site and presented two great young talents with a prize in the designer contest.
Over 300 applications were received from young designers from Russia, Japan, China, Hungary and Poland to participate in the contest. Designer Liang Yo from Japan won the contest’s main prize with his collection Open The Heart. In addition to the award ceremony it was also possible to gain an overview of coming trends and future-oriented fashion as well as draw inspiration from other cultures.
For the coming year organisers of the Admiralty Needle promise a new and interesting competition format. Further, CPM – Collection Première Moscow will once again be represented in the jury to focus their special attention on great young designers from the fashion world.
The next CPM – Collection Première Moscow will be held at Moscow’s Expocentre exhibition centre from August 30 to September 2, 2017. National and international manufacturers will present their collections here for the 2017/18 autumn/winter season.
