NEWS| Former OTW winner Hellen van Rees wins The Humanity in Fashion Award.
We were thrilled to discover that former Ones to Watch designer Hellen van Rees was the winner of The Humanity in Fashion Award. As we blogged back in April, she was named alongside two other designers as a finalist for this prestigious award which recognizes creative fashion design through sustainability and eco-friendly clothing. This year’s theme was ‘Authenticity’ and entrants were asked to show vision and innovation for tomorrow’s eco fashion. Hellen's entry was her Square^3 Angle collection which is a futuristic interpretation of the Chanel classic.
Hellen was announced the winner following a final catwalk presentation during Berlin Fashion Week on July 3rd. Hellen received an award of 25,000 euros and an exclusive contract to create a women’s capsule collection for Hessnatur, Germany’s largest natural clothing brand. Many congratulations on your esteemed win!
