H&M Design Award 201317:11
The winner of the H&M Design Award 2013, Minju Kim, has developed pieces from her collection with H&M to be sold at selected H&M stores this autumn. Minju, a 27 year-old graduate from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp, was selected by a jury of international fashion experts for her collection which transformed characters into outfits. As part of her overall prize, nine women’s pieces and two accessories have been developed with the H&M design team. The collection will be available from October 17 at selected H&M stores as well as online. It will also be available at Opening Ceremony, the first time an H&M collection will be sold at Opening Ceremony stores.
“Creating this collection with H&M has been an amazing experience. My designs are about turning characters into outfits, and it’s exciting to think that these characters will soon be worn by people around the world. Winning the H&M Design Award has given me a unique insight into the global fashion industry,” says Minju Kim.
Unfortunately the collection doesn't feature men's pieces. Nevertheless it is a n.a.i.s. collection, inspired by Mangas with a quirky twist!
