HKDI student clinches Gold in REMIX International Fur Design Competition 2011
8 March 2011
Sarah LAM, a student of the Hong Kong Design Institute (HKDI), won the Gold Prize in REMIX, the International Fur Design Competition at La Visionnaire in Milan. Her work, named Whirlpool, beat 40 other entries from contestants around the world. This is the second time that a student of HKDI has won this prestigious competition.
Sarah enjoyed her first experience of an international competition, despite the challenge of facing an international judging panel. She was the youngest among the eight finalists. In Whirlpool, Sarah incorporated the streamlined and whirling features of contemporary architecture into her fur design, by spraying brown whirlpool patterns onto a natural pearl-coloured mink coat to create the dizzying visual effects. The theme of the design was clearly spelt out and the work was able to actualise the concept. Coupled with her brilliant presentation on the spot, she earned the commendation of the judges for her design work.
In addition to the Gold award in REMIX, Sarah was also the winner in the Full Fur Category at the Hong Kong Fur Design Competition 2011, organised by the Hong Kong Fur Federation.
