Kim Choong-Wilkins, the designer behind Vauxhall Fashion Scout's Menswear Ones to Watch brand BODYBOUND presented his designs on 27 April to the panel of the Hyeres International Festival 2012. Kim was one of the ten worldwide finalists who competed to win the accolade. Finnish designers Elina Laitinen, Siiri Raasakka and Tiia Siren won the prize and Fashion Scout's Steven Tai won the Chloe award, yet Kim Choong-Wilkin received invaluable recognition as part of the initiative. The festival, which took place from April 27-30, has previously launched the careers of Viktof & Rolf and Filipe Oliveira Baptista. Well done Kim Choong-Wilkins from the whole VFS team!
