Designer Tsolmandakh Munkhuu from Mongolia took home the Prix du publique for her all-black collection of voluminous organdy and satin pieces whose spookiness was amplified by her models having been covered head to foot in black paint. The Prix du jury went to another of the festival’s favorites, Antwerp-based Alexandra Verschueren. Like so much folded paper, her capes and dresses were constructed of layered, three-dimensional cutouts that would look equally at home in an architecture studio as on a runway.
For photography, both from Switzerland Matthieu Lavanchy and Yann Gross shared the Prix du jury.
