The 14 finalists for the 2021 ANDAM Fashion Award hail mostly from Europe, and tend to specialize in fashions that blur boundaries and value inclusivity. Sustainability is practically a given.
Here are the seven contenders for the ANDAM Grand Prize, which comes with 300,000 euros and a year of coaching from Balenciaga chief executive officer Cédric Charbit, the president of this year’s jury.
Serhat Işık and Benjamin A. Huseby established the Berlin-based label GmbH in 2016, quickly gaining a reputation for sustainable practices and an aesthetic that references underground club culture, migration, politics, queerness and more. Their gender-fluid collections are known for innovative tailoring, streetwear cool and subversive touches, with their fall 2021 collection boasting sensual off-the-shoulder coats and jackets worn by men.
Last month, Işık and Huseby were named creative directors of Trussardi and are to show their first collection for fall 2022.
Işık is a first-generation German of Turkish descent and Huseby, of Norwegian-Pakistani heritage, grew up in Norway. Cultural mixes and a sense of otherness have informed GmbH, and the city and cultural scene of Berlin have also shaped their approach. Last year GmbH was a finalist for the Woolmark Prize.

Charaf Tajer launched Casablanca in 2018 as a men’s wear label after several other successful endeavors: as a partner in the Paris-based creative collective Pain O Chokolat, as cofounder of the clothing label Pigalle and after launching hot nightclubs, including Le Pompon.
Casablanca quickly became a byword for snazzy silk shirts, funky terry-cloth tracksuits and cool sneakers, the latter done in collaboration with New Balance. Early celebrity adoptees of the label included J Balvin, Travis Scott, Gigi Hadid and Hailey Bieber, which compelled Tajer to make his collection coed.
Tajer plans to develop a full lifestyle offering, with the ambition of positioning Casablanca among the apex of French luxury brands. The designer was born in France, but his parents met working in a tailoring workshop in the Moroccan city that inspired the label’s name.

Launched in 2014 by design duo Beckett Fogg and Piotrek Panszczyk, who met at Parsons School of Design, Area has made a name for itself with a sparkly, sometimes racy take on women’s wear that combines the high gloss of a 1970s fashion magazine with a distinctly Millennial embrace of inclusivity.
“Our brand is all about glamour and really the polarizing idea of what that could be,” Panszczyk told WWD in 2019. Celebrities who have embraced its eccentric, DIY-tinged aesthetic are as diverse as Michelle Obama, Katy Perry and Ariana Grande.
Last January, the New York-based brand made its first couture collection, employing almost 500,000 Swarosvki crystals on designs inspired by ancient civilizations.

A 2014 graduate of Central Saint Martins, Grace Wales Bonner began exploring representations of Black male sexuality and identity with her fashions, later taking on personal explorations of African identity and spirituality and branching out into women’s wear.
Working with a small team, the British designer has won a slew of fashion awards, including the 2016 LVMH Prize and the 2019 BFC/Vogue Designer Fashion Fund. Her clothes are carried at retailers including Matchesfashion.com, Dover Street Market, Net-a-porter, Ssense, Browns, Boon the Shop and Galeries Lafayette.
She has racked up collaborations with Adidas Originals and with Maria Grazia Chiuri on Dior’s cruise 2020 collection. Last year, Wales Bonner began showing her collection during Paris Fashion Week.

LUDOVIC DE SAINT SERNIN
A fashion design graduate from The Duperré School of Applied Arts, Ludovic de Saint Sernin worked for a number of French houses including Balmain before launching his signature label for spring 2018.
His unabashedly sexy, exacting clothes are for both sexes, but are shown predominantly on men, including underwear that laces up the front or back with rows of grommets. He also makes bandage tops, silky pajamas and short skirts.
In 2020, he introduced swimwear and entered the official calendar of Paris Fashion Week Men’s. In 2018, he won the ANDAM Creative Label prize.
He operates his own e-store and also sells his skimpy designs via Ssense, Matchesfashion.com, H. Lorenzo and Departamento in Los Angeles, Joyce in Hong Kong and ENG in Shanghai.

Born in Seoul and raised in Austin, Tex., Rok Hwang studied fashion at Central Saint Martins, going on to cut his teeth at the likes of Celine, Louis Vuitton and Chloé. He launched his London-based fashion house Rokh in 2016, offering cool, of-the-moment women’s wear.
In a short time, he amassed more than 100 top wholesale clients attracted to his unique point of view combining pragmatic dressing, romance and street edge.
Shirts with split sleeves, blazers featuring sharp layers, a mannish coat with a spliced body held together by toggle fastenings, or a trench featuring an open back and buttoned panels that can be pulled apart have been some of the brand’s standout pieces.

Drawing on her British and West Indian background, Bianca Saunders is not afraid to explore the more vulnerable side of men. Her fall collection was influenced by photographer Man Ray, and stretched fabric imagery by Erwin Wurm, and featured her second collaboration with Wrangler.
“My main aim for the brand was to create that balance. You get the really over-masculine guy and effeminate guy existing in the same world. Even the pieces can be seen as slightly more feminine. I think this is how I create the energy that brings something different, and more things to the men’s wear conversation,” the Royal College of Art graduate told WWD recently.
Saunders is also a finalist for the LVMH Prize.

Here are the four nominees for the Pierre Bergé Prize, which focuses on young French companies and comes with 100,000 euros and mentoring from Sophie Delafontaine, artistic director at Longchamp:
CHARLES DE VILMORIN
Since launching his brand in April 2020 in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, Charles de Vilmorin has enjoyed a meteoric rise, making his debut at Paris Couture Week in January, and subsequently being named creative director of French fashion house Rochas.
Known for his colorful paintings tinged with darkness, the French designer has made a splash with quilted bomber jackets and sculptural hourglass dresses inspired by the work of artist Niki de Saint Phalle. In line with his genderless aesthetic, he frequently uses makeup and body painting to transform models into avatars for the fantastical creatures he draws.
De Vilmorin is also a finalist for the LVMH Prize.

Florentin Glémarec and Kévin Nompeix introduced their genderless label in 2019, attracting attention on social media for posting a photo of Glémarec’s eightysomething grandparents wearing biker jackets and matching leather pants — hers hand-painted with roses, his sprouting sharp spikes.
The brand is named after Austrian painter Egon Scheile and its “tailored urban-punk DNA aims to dress all body shapes, all genders of all ages without ever distorting them.”
While tailoring has been the focus of recent collections, its first collaboration — with sportswear label Sergio Tacchini — added a streetwear influence. The designers aim to create a lifestyle brand, and surround themselves with visual artist and music types.

Cofounders Ester Manas and Balthazar Delepierre have caught the industry’s attention with their novel approach: one-size-fits-all adjustable clothes that accommodate everyone from a U.S. size 2 to a size 22 — thanks to adjustable belts, straps and snaps.
The Brussels-based duo incorporate inclusivity and sustainability into all aspects of their business, from the design to the look book to the shopping experience. In addition to reducing waste by producing only one size, they use recycled fabrics and manufacture the pieces locally, in a vocational training workshop for vulnerable workers.
They joined Paris Fashion Week last year, and also launched their first handbag line incorporating a clasped-hands logo that symbolizes sorority.

Uniforme is the brainchild of Hugues Fauchard and Rémi Bats, both graduates of the Studio Berçot fashion school who racked up experience at a range of Paris fashion brands (Balenciaga, Lanvin, Ami and Wooyoungmi among them) before launching sustainably minded Uniforme in 2017.
They describe their approach as “conscious minimalism,” creating designs with military and utilitarian influences but with the ease of streetwear. In 2020, they moved their studio from Paris to Nantes to work more closely with their manufacturing partners and reconnect with nature.
“We believe in a way of consuming fashion that involves by sparingly, but better, holding onto favorites and passing them along,” they explain.

And here are the three finalists for the Accessories Prize, which comes with 50,000 euros and mentoring from Giovanna Engelbert, Swarovski’s creative director:
Sonia Ahmimou founded the Aswad leather goods workshop in Paris in 2015 after spending more than a decade learning the métier at Louis Vuitton, Moynat and Hermès.
Her brand name derives from the literary Arabic phrase “hajar el aswad,” meaning the black stone. According to her brand’s website, its aesthetic is located “at the crossroads of Moroccan and French craftsmanship and in our attachment to the preservation of traditional skills.”
Her sleek bags, some with zippered external compartments, and small leather goods are sold on her website and to select wholesale accounts, including Merci in Paris, Zero + Maria Cornejo in Los Angeles, Duro Olowu in London and The Exposed House in Abu Dhabi.

Based in Vienna and founded in 2017, Published By creates sculptural accessories inspired by architecture and modern art, including gleaming, stone-shaped chrome bags slung on leather ropes, plus offbeat brooches, harnesses and necklaces.
Founder and creative director Christoph Tsetinis employs CAD-manufacturing programs from the automotive industry and incorporates recycled car parts in a bid to reduce waste and push creative boundaries. He works with his partner Ruby Wallen, who is managing director of the company.
Buyers and consumers are shown a range of products during the design phase and only the most sought-after products are produced, cutting down on samples and overproduction.

Skulls, flowers, eyes, lips and the odd penis figure can be found on the baroque and slightly surreal jewelry of Samuel François, a French stylist often seen trailing behind Numero editor in chief Babeth Djian. He has been with the magazine for more than 20 years and is currently its fashion director.
While he trained at the fashion school Studio-Berçot, François is self-taught in jewelry-making and sculpts each wax model, handing them to master craftsmen who take care of the bronze enameling.
His brand dates from 2017 and references his many trips to Naples, where he draws particular inspiration from the Fontanelle cemetery, and also express his taste for antiquity.

Fashion school students around the world are preparing to enter an industry that’s rapidly changing. There are courses to pass, design prompts to ace, runway shows to prep for and professional connections to make. And over the past year, they’ve had to navigate it all under Covid-19 restrictions. In our series, “Fashion School Diaries,” those students give us a firsthand look into their day-to-day lives. Here, we meet Benjamin Spencer, a 2021 Savannah College of Art and Design Accessory Design B.F.A. graduate.
I’m not sure if it’s too early to call Benjamin Spencer a designer to watch, considering he just graduated from SCAD, but the 24-year-old is doing some pretty remarkable things with footwear design. For his senior collection, he worked with thermochromic dyes that change color in response to temperature.
“The changing of colors represents the different emotions people feel throughout the day,” Spencer writes of the sculptural collection, which is titled “Metamorphosis” and was inspired by his own mental health struggles brought about by the pandemic.
Spencer has already been getting industry recognition. Christian Louboutin selected him as a finalist for the Hyères Festival, for which he will present in France this October. He was also one of nine out of 400 designers awarded a $15,000 grant by the Swarovski Creatives for Our Future program, which he plans to use to “continue [his] research of thermochromic dyes and how to merge them with bioplastics, grown materials and other sustainable textiles to create footwear and other products.” Finally, he won Melissa’s Melissa Next competition and is now in the process of collaborating with the Brazilian shoe brand on a product that will be sold in stores.
After presenting his collection in SCAD’s virtual student show and graduating, Spencer took some time to reflect on his early love of shoes, his years at the Georgia design school, the challenges and silver linings brought about by the pandemic and his lofty career ambitions.
“I grew up in a small farm town playing sports and being active outside. I was always interested in shoes, from collecting to drawing shoes I saw in magazines and designing my own. However, I never really thought that it was possible to go into the fashion industry, coming from a small town in Missouri. I always just thought of fashion as a hobby rather than a real career possibility.
“Before transferring to SCAD, I studied engineering at another university for two years. Engineering is considered a practical and successful job where I’m from, so I decided to pursue it. After a year of studying, though, I knew being an engineer wasn’t the career path for me. My parents started pushing me back toward my passion of designing shoes. We started looking at universities that offered accessory design as a major, and when we finally visited SCAD, I fell in love. SCAD not only offers a program that allowed me to study footwear design, but the program also taught pattern making and sample-making, which is something that many of the other universities didn’t This is how I knew that SCAD was the place for me.
“From my time at SCAD, what I will remember most are the relationships I built, both with my professors (who I know will encourage and support me even after graduation, and I plan on staying in touch with throughout my career) and with my peers, whether through friendships or being a part of the same industry. I see myself staying in touch with many of the people that I met and collaborated with during my time at SCAD and I hope we will work together again as we embark on our careers in the industry.
“When designing, I always start with a story. What story do I want the product to tell, or how do I want the consumer to feel when they first see the product and then wear it? After I create the story behind the piece, I start researching silhouettes that will help to tell the story best. The story and silhouette research generally lead me into what type of textile development will be used on the shoe. However, the order of all of these steps are interchangeable and sometimes will change depending on what type of inspiration is coming to me in the moment.
“As many know, the pandemic caused everyone to take a step back and reevaluate the important things in life. It also caused us to reevaluate how we work and the restraints we had been placing on ourselves, whether that was needing an office to go into or thinking that the only way to make shoes was by having a sewing machine and a bunch of industrial equipment. The pandemic allowed us to journey back to when we were children and all we had was our imagination to let us run wild.
“The pandemic also impacted internships that would have occurred during the summer of 2020 and the vital experience that students would have gained. I had been accepted to intern with Ralph Lauren, but due to the pandemic the internship was adjusted to be virtual. I gained so much from the experience, even though it was virtual, and feel honored to have had the opportunity to work with the Ralph Lauren design team. But since I was at home, it gave me the time to search for other ways to be creative and focus on my designs. I ended up setting up a studio in my garage with one of my best friends, as well as working for a start-up company focused on making protective head coverings.
“I also embraced the challenges of not having access to a sewing machine and the typical equipment necessary to produce shoes. I used this time to experiment with different methods of making shoes using two- and three-part molding techniques.
“Over the last year, the biggest challenges for me were mental health, the loss of loved ones and feelings of uncertainty brought on by the pandemic. When researching my concept for my senior collection, I knew I wanted it to be relevant to what was currently occurring in the world. I toyed with different ideas surrounding the pandemic, but the story that felt most natural and closest to my heart focused on the conversation of mental health. Mental health is something that I have struggled with throughout my life and something that I have always hid and been ashamed of. By creating a collection solely focused on the study of mental health and the changing of emotions, it not only gave me a platform to bring awareness to different aspects of mental health, but it was also very therapeutic, allowing me to feel more comfortable speaking about my own struggles.
“My senior collection is titled ‘Metamorphosis.’ ‘Metamorphosis’ is a reflection of the rise in mental health issues that have occurred due to the pandemic, loss of loved ones, seclusion and financial instability. The collection takes inspiration from different animals’ physical characteristics and how they change in regard to the emotions they are feeling. Thermochromic dye is used throughout — they allow the color of each shoe to change in relation to the temperature of the environment the shoe is in. The changing of colors represents the different emotions people feel throughout the day. ‘Metamorphosis’ is meant to question what is truly ‘normal’ and let people know it’s okay if they feel like they’re different, because being different is what makes each and every one of us special.
“After developing a concept I felt strongly about, I knew the main focus of my collection would be on innovation in textile development. I wanted my materials to reflect different animals’ textures and I knew I wouldn’t be able to achieve this using traditional materials. I spoke a great deal with my professor, Michael Mack, and a fibers senior, Kathryn Sours, about different materials that could potentially be used to achieve the effects I was looking for. From there, I worked to create dozens of material swatches using liquid rubber, resin, leather, thermochromic dyes and pretty much anything I could get my hands on until I had a core of materials I felt strongly about.
“After deciding what type of textile development I was going to use, I began creating silhouettes. The process that I used was much different than previous processes, because I was focused on creating brand-new silhouettes. My goal was to create shoes that were wearable, but made people question what the parameters of a shoe could actually be. I began focusing on merging different objects together, such as crystals and a human heart or jellyfish and a teapot, to create brand-new silhouettes.
“Because of the experimentation I was doing with my silhouettes and textile development, there was a lot of trial and error involved in the creation of my collection. There wasn’t a single shoe where everything went perfectly according to plan, but that made the process exciting.
“When creating the initial concept for my collection I was really focused on how I would be able to present the collection to showcase the color transformation of the shoes and tie the theme of changing emotions together. I knew I wanted to have a video or a live art installation; however, with the pandemic, I decided to solely use video to portray the collection. I partnered with a few SCAD students to help me showcase my final collection: Malia Acuri (B.F.A., fashion merchandising, 2021), who art directed the collection shoots, and Melissa Chilson (B.F.A., film and television, 2021). In collaborating with Malia and Melissa, I was able to bring the vision behind the collection to life. SCAD has really taught me to value cross-disciplinary collaboration, and my openness to work with other students to showcase my collection made the presentation all the more impactful.
“It was always exciting for me getting to show my peers and professors the thermochromic dyes in use for the first time. Seeing a shoe completely change colors in front of your eyes is not something that many people have seen before, so there would always be lots of confusion and excitement on their faces.
“Now that I’m done, I’m proud of how my collection turned out. There will always be ways to improve upon it, but I’m excited to see how I can move forward with everything I learned at SCAD.
“I’m very excited to display my work in SCAD FASHION 2021. By displaying my collection virtually, the possibility increases that people all over the world will see my work. This allows for greater access and visibility, so that brands and other designers can view my work.
“Being recognized by two prestigious organizations such as the International Festival of Fashion (Hyères Festival) and the Swarovski Creatives for Our Future Program has been a great honor for me, and I couldn’t have done it without the support of my professors at SCAD who encouraged me to submit my designs for these global competitions and championed me along the way.
“After graduation, I plan on focusing my time toward working on the Swarovski Creatives for Our Future Grant and the Melissa collaboration. I will also be dedicating time to building my brand, Thomas Benjamin, and my first collection that I plan to release in 2022. I’m also searching for a full-time design position within the luxury fashion industry.
“When speaking about where I see myself in the future or my ultimate career goals, people always tell me that my head is in the clouds. When I tell them that one day, I will be the creative director of one of the top French fashion houses, they tell me, ‘But you study footwear design.’ When I tell them that one day The House of Thomas Benjamin will continue on for generations to come, they laugh or act like I’m crazy. But what those people don’t see are the hours and hours spent working on my craft and the dedication I had to learning from the very best professors and mentors at SCAD. I grow each and every day, always push myself and am never okay with where I am – I always strive for more and to be more. These goals I have for myself aren’t going to happen overnight and there are also many smaller steps I must take before I can get to the finish line, but one thing I always have known is that when someone says I can’t achieve something it pushes me even harder. Some would say my self-belief is naïve, but to those people I say: You can’t achieve if you don’t believe.”
