GFW INTERNATIONAL Award

CHRISTINA ECONOMU Istituto Marangoni, Paris

Like Dominique Kral, Christina Economu opted for a collection of clashing prints. A bright floral print, white squares against a purple background, and a black and white painterly print formed the basis of the collection, and were all used on each look. The monochrome print was seen on a long, flowing jacket, while the other two were interchanged between tops and bottoms - on crop tops, trousers, long flowing skirts with a slit, and high-waisted trousers. Draping and undulating lines also featured.

Competition was fierce this year, with more international colleges joining in, including the Isitituto Marangoni (Paris and Milan), the Amsterdam Fashion Institute, LASALLE Singapore and Saint Petersburg State University of Technology and Design.

The judges said Economu “produced an accomplished collection of separates that have created a balanced look of harmonised mixed-up prints with a touch of traditional finesse”.
