Anndra Neen, comprised of designer duo sisters Phoebe and Annette Stephens, have enjoyed critical acclaim for their jewellery and accessories line since being awarded the prize last autumn, and have already been featured in The New York Times, Vogue.fr and Vogue.com, and secured a place on the British Vogue 2012 Hot List. Like Anndra Neen, the 2012 winner will also receive the opportunity to stay at a Dorchester Collection property in Paris or Milan during Fashion Week, spring 2013.
The 2012 Dorchester Collection Fashion Prize carries an endowment of €30,000 to be awarded by a panel of expert judges to a gifted designer of ready-to-wear or premium accessories to help establish their brand. Entries for the 2012 Dorchester Collection Fashion Prize must be based in France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Luxembourg or Switzerland and have operated their brand for a minimum of two years. Application details will be available for download on the Dorchester Collection website (www.dorchestercollection.com) from 2 April 2012 and registration will be open until 31 May 2012.
Dorchester Collection is recruiting a panel of expert judges from the world of fashion and ultimately, the judges of the 2012 Dorchester Collection Fashion Prize will seek to award one designer who best demonstrates original aesthetic flair, a capability for future critical distinction and commercial success. The winner’s work must also evoke the spirit of Dorchester Collection’s iconic hotels and, therefore, project a sense of individuality, luxury, style and craftsmanship. The prize continues to build momentum and highlights design talent around the world helping to shape the careers of the 2010 winner Thomas Tait and 2011 winner Anndra Neen.
