Danish designer Stine Riis has scooped the first H&M Design Award, which was set up earlier this year to find the next generation of designers.
Her collection, made up of tailoring in contrasting materials including leather, wool and metallic fabrics, was showcased at Stockholm’s Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. She will also receive a €50,000 (£41,000) prize.
Ann-Sofie Johansson, H&M head of design, said: “Stine Riis impressed us all with the maturity and modernity of her work. Her collection was so complete, and so well finished. It was such a sophisticated show, and such an exciting occasion.”
