Winning Designer: Yina Ren

AMD Graduates Fashion Show

Each year the graduate designers of Fashion Design (B.A.) and Sustainability in Fashion and Design Industries (M.A.) present their final collections in one of the shows in Düsseldorf, Berlin or Hamburg. At these shows, over 20 collections and more than 150 looks are presented. Each designer has to show their skills and convince the audience about clear visions with sustainable, avant-garde and functional concepts. This year the jury consisted of incredible industry experts such as Galvan London's Fashion Director Anna-Christin Haas, Journalist Inge Hufschlag and Executive Director of Breuninger Düsseldorf Andreas Rebbelmund.

This year it was graduate designer Yina Ren who stole the hearts of the jury with her collection titled "VIRTUAL AS NATURAL". Her show was a perfect fit with this year's theme: #research,#results,#reshow and #rethink.
