The jury comments on 4 finalists:

Re-think mink:
Camilla Phil Andersen (Esmod Olso) remained faithful to the theme of re-thinking the classic mink in an extremely trendy conceptual look at womenswear. Young and fun, her design was exciting in its simplicity with such details as combining fur with plastic pearls and other unusual materials. Practical and suitable for production, Andersen cleverly took a novel approach without compromising the wearable value of the garments.

Seo Yeun Jin (Esmod Seoul) conjured up a very masculine solution for menswear, while adding touches by combining fur with unusual materials such as plastic. Through the use of delicate product samples, he captured an Italian spirit and a stylish means of integrating fur into menswear.

Li Zheng (Esmod Paris) worked in the spirit of haute couture, although the assignment showed a modern graphic approach with its complex cuttings. Dramatic shapes were created by combining leather and fur to help manifest a high-profile silhouette.

Anthony Banzo Tentativa (Esmod Paris) offered modern aggressive design in new fur graphics with lovely color combinations. The cutting-edge shapes had all the characteristics that would appeal to the modern, fashion-wise, urban woman.
