Dutch designer Iris van Herpen is this year's winner of the ANDAM Fashion Award. Known for her theatrical, avant-garde work (images from her most recent collection feature models curled up and suspended in clear plastic), the designer beat Etudes Studio, Fausto Puglisi, Jean-Paul Lespagnard, Rad Hourani, Steven Tai and Yiqing Yin to win the award.

Van Herpen will receive a prize of €250,000, as well as a year of mentoring from Kering chairman and CEO François-Henri Pinault. There's also the matter of a purchase order from Hudson's Bay Company, €110,000 worth of Swarovski crystals, a capsule collection for TheCorner.com, a commercial and strategic mentorship from the Tomorrow showroom, and space in Galeries Lafayette's Paris flagship to present two collections.
