Lady Gaga chose to wear the final outfit she designed at the University of the Arts London Central Saint Martin. Helen van Rees winner of the Humantiy in Fashion Award convinced the jury on July 3rd 2013 at the Villa Elisaeth in Berlin with her impressive collection »Square³ Angle«.

 

Her co-finalists Eva Howitz (graduate from Hochschule für Kunst und Design »Burg Giebichstein«) and Stefanie Strohwasser (student at Hochschule für Gestaltung Pforzheim) worked intensively at finding their individual approaches towards this year’s motto authenticity and made impressive statements through there high quality collections »Sieben Erzgebirge« (Eva Howitz) and »Useddesu« (Stefanie Strohwasser).

 

»Again, it was no easy decision we had to make. All three finalists gave proof of outstanding creativity«,says Miguel Adrover, designer and member of the jury. Chanel Tweed Twinsets and the artist Anish Kapoor are Hellen van Rees’s source of inspiration. Classical patterns combined with futuristic forms create an interesting look the 26 year old designer matches with accessories like shoes and hand bags.

 

Van Rees has developed a genuine hand weaving method that allows no waste. Using recycled threads she pays considerable attention to detail. »What lends my collection its special character is that each step along the production process is done by hand.« Besides receiving the prize of 25.000 Euro Helen van Rees will be designing a Women’s Capsule Collection for hessnatur in fall/winter 2014 as part of her reward.

the 2013 FINALISTs

 

 

howitzweissbach

»sieben erzgebirge«

 

 

 

 

 

 

Eva Howitz

(Germany, Leipzig) 

 

 

 

Four years ago Eva Howitz and Frieder Weissbach establish the label »howitzweissbach«. Both are graduates from the Academy of Art and Design »Burg Giebichstein«, Halle (Saale). Both see their label as an expression of conscious paths and views. To discover and make use of local resources lies at the very heart of the label’s creative aim, design and production bear reference to where they stem from. 

 

The collection handed in for the competition is called »Sieben Erzgebirge« and pays homage to the German region »Erzgebirge«, its far-reaching history and craftsmanship. Tradition encounters contemporary spirit. Inspired by old manufacturing techniques and by »shaping things with bare hands« the materials are of highest ecological quality. Handpainted textiles and folklore inspired silhouettesare the messages from traditional ideas in a new garb. 

 

For howitzweissbach authenticity is a question of attitude and quality, of preserving values on numerous levels, of being truthful in actions and of creating additional design value without doing harm.

Hellen van Rees

(Netherlands, Hengelo) 

The 25 year old Dutchwoman studied fashion design at the artez institute for art in Arnhem and at the Central St. Martins College of Art and Design in London. In 2012 she presented her debut collection at the London Fashion Week. Since her student days van Rees has loved to interpret fabrics and classical suits.

 

The collection submitted for the competition sends Chanel into the world of tomorrow. »Square³ Angle« is a futuristic interpretation of the Chanel classic. Lady Gaga encounters Queen Maxima. Popstar meets lady. Avantgarde meets establishment. Feminine, clean cut and graphic silhouettes are blended with three-dimensional elements and vibrantly coloured fabrics. A unique and innovative weaving technique allows van Rees to fashion multicoloured surfaces made of recycled threads bringing to mind the typical Chanel-Tweed. The weaving technology allows the garments to be hand-woven in one piece. without cutting. No waste.

 

Hellen van Rees works like a Recycling-Couturier. Many items are crafted as handmade and unique pieces with a great love of detail. Recycled materials play a central role. Van Rees describes authenticity as appreciation, as time investment, as the awareness and love dedicated to the process of creating fashion.

»useddesu«

 

 

 

  

 

Stefanie Stohwasser

(Germany, Pforzheim)  

24 year old Stefanie Stohwasser is a student at Hochschule für Gestaltung Pforzheim. 

 

The collection »useddesu« came into existence during her studies. As the name of her collection already mentions recycling is the overall theme. Her criticism of mindless consumption of clothing, of a throw-away mentality in fashion prompts her to give used things the chance to find a new avail within a new form. She also sees herself as a story-teller making use of bags, canvasses, blankets and the like to revive reminiscences, locations and times past in her pieces of clothing. Her collection consists of casual silhouettes inspired by men’s wear making wide use of functional details. Thus Stefanie Stohwasser displays a sportive style for confident women. 

 

The question of authenticity is best answered for Stefanie Stohwasser with honesty, with knowledge and exhibition of weaknesses and strengths. Sparing use of material, longevity and the relearning of a proper appreciation of clothing are key words in her vision of a sustainable future. To make it simple: quality instead of quantity.

What began as a project for her fashion design studies in Bielefeld has graduated to a great success by winning the Humanity in Fashion Award: master’s program student Sandra Goldmann distinguished herself against competitors Agne Biskyte (Vilnius Art Academy) and Willem Gremliza (University of the Arts, Berlin) at the awards ceremony for the Humanity in Fashion Award on January 18, 2012 in the Berliner Bauakademie, ultimately winning the competition with her collection “HINSCHAUEN”.

 

It was not easy for the jury to choose the winner. The three finalists inspired the jury with unique concepts, “truly fashionable treats”. Sandra Goldmann finally persuaded the jury with her critical and substantial reflection upon textile production processes. Her in-depth, widely ranging collection plays extremely skillfully with ecological dyeing techniques and poses many approaches for successful sales.

 

Her prize: Sandra Goldmann will receive an award of 25,000 euros and the opportunity to create a women’s capsule collection for hessnatur, which will be on the market in Spring 2013.

AGNE BISKYTE, SANDRA GOLDMANN AND WILLEM GREMLIZA 

— THE 2012 FINALISTS

 

 

 

 

 

AGNE BISKYTE — »FOUR SEASONS«

 

 

 

The 32-year-old Lithuanian Agne Biskyte is a graduate of the Vilnius Art Academy and specializes in knitwear design. She recently started her own company, “BIS a BIS”. Her collection submitted for the competition, “FOUR SEASONS” is composed of knitwear designs that present a fascinatingly broad range of wearing and styling variations. A clear, generous use of volume provides comfort and simultaneously promises extravagance. The knitwear designer from Lithuania thus highlights an important aspect of sustainability.

 

She sees sustainable thinking and action as a task for every designer to fulfill in order to achieve and create ecological and social standards.

 

 

 

Agne Biskyte

(Litauen, Vilnius)

 

In her installation, Agne Biskyte demonstrated a desire to breach the boundlessly globalized and business-oriented textile and fashion industries with an intensification of humanity and warmth. The 4 pieces displayed from her collection seemed like plants, and symbolized a powerful but natural kind of growth that can rupture the vanity and greed of a cold industrial system.

 SANDRA GOLDMANN — »HINSCHAUEN«

 

 

 

The 25-year-old master’s program student at the University of Applied Sciences, Bielefeld entered the competition with a collection that deals intensely with ecologically sound dyeing techniques. The concept is based on her belief that ecological and sustainable action depends on a knowledge of production processes and demands more accountability and transparency in textile refinement processes. Sandra Goldmann’s collection, “HINSCHAUEN” shows an exciting transformation from basic pieces of clothing into new silhouettes, volumes and surfaces. Her clothing presents a captivatingly eclectic range of ecological dyeing techniques and, according to the jury, plays “expertly with fashion references, without being constrained by them”. The process of re-using clothing through conditioning and adaptation is a central focus of her work.

 

 

 

Sandra Goldmann

(Germany, Bielefeld)

 

With her installation, Sandra Goldmann visualized several types of transformation: the visual focus of the construction was formed by a cotton garment tied to a wooden framework. Over the course of three days, a pumping system saturated the stretched garment with blue dye – the viewer thus experienced the process of dyeing in real-time.

 

The dyeing of clothing was presented as both an aesthetic design element and a real experience that reflected industrial manufacturing techniques.

WILLEM GREMLIZA — »HUTTON QUEEN«

 

 

 

The 30-year-old Berliner Willem Gremliza is a graduate of the University of the Arts, Berlin. After working with Givenchy Paris and Michalsky Berlin, he founded his own label last year. For him, the combination of high creative standards with ecological and humanitarian principles is an obligation to his customers. The collection he submitted for the competition, “HUTTON QUEEN” is inspired by an Annie Leibovitz photograph of the model Lauren Hutton. He is concerned with a respect for natural ageing, an appreciation of bodily maturity as a personal luxury, and the search for quality and uniqueness in clothing. Willem Gremliza sees fashion as the interface between nature and the human body.

 

 

 

Willem Gremliza

(Germany, Berlin) 

 

In the competition, he captivated the jury with glamorous designs that are both adept and authentic.

 

With his installation, he highlighted his awareness that the body is an inseparable part of nature, and that its various phases of ageing each possess their own aesthetic. In a mobile-like structure, he installed wonderful illustrations of organic ageing processes. At the center of the installation, a significant piece from his collection symbolized the fact that the natural beauty of the human body forms a union with both nature and clothing.

THE FIRST HUMANITY IN FASHION
AWARD 2011 BY HESSNATUR IS PRESENTED TO
JANOSCH MALLWITZ

Humanity in Fashion Award 2011 by hessnatur

Janosch Mallwitz is the 2011 winner of the first Humanity in Fashion Award. A graduate of the Berlin University of the Arts, Mallwitz’s collection came out on top in the final round against fellow nominees Julia Knüpfer und Anja Umann.

 

The level of competition displayed a conceptual diversity and demonstrated a captivatingly high quality of presentation. Julia Knüpfer enchanted audiences with her highly aesthetic and intricately designed knitwear. Anja Umann made an impression with her powerful vegan design concept. Janosch Mallwitz won over the jury with the high quality of his clothing, the progressive attitude of his concept and his entertaining installation.

 

With the collection he submitted for the competition, “Graduation”, Janosch Mallwitz asserts a concept that goes beyond the formal design of ecological clothing by focusing on the manufacturing of textiles and demanding the transformation of globalized production processes in the direction of sustainability. For Mallwitz, sustainability and fashion are a challenging paradox because materially objectionable aesthetics are often culturally justified; and making these aesthetics sustainable harbors an enormous potential for development.

 

The jury is certain that Janosch Mallwitz, as the first winner of the Humanity in Fashion Award, will create a “young, modern collection with a sporty touch” with hessnatur. The capsule collection will be released in spring 2012 and will be available through the hessnatur catalog and online at www.hessnatur.com.

THE 2011 FINALISTS

 

 

 

Julia Knüpfer — »SOFT BONDS«

 

 

 

 

 The 27-year-old Berlin-based designer Julia Knüpfer is a graduate of Esmod Berlin. In 2009, she founded the green fashion label “ica watermelon”, combining the concepts of sustainability and quality in fashion.

For Julia Knüpfer, sustainable business is not only contemporary, but absolutely necessary for the future. She hopes that consumers will become more and more aware and that green fashion will become increasingly prevalent so that people will no longer need to ask where and under what conditions a product was manufactured. The issue of humaneness is central to her work.

 

The collection she submitted for the competition, “soft bonds”, addresses the charged relationship between being free and being bound. Dynamic volume, open structures and flowing fabrics meet contrasting elements such as cording, woven strands and knots. This highly feminine collection with a strong attention to detail complies with the notion of sustainability through its use of ecologically and fairly produced materials and the high quality and durability of its pieces.

 

Julia Knüpfer presented her work for the final of the Humanity in Fashion Award in a very sensual sculpture made of knotted rope that encompassed the entire room.

Janosch Mallwitz — »GRADUATION«

 

 

 

Berliner Janosch Mallwitz completed his studies in fashion at the University of the Arts in the summer of 2010 and founded his own label, »LAST«.

 

With the “Graduation” men’s collection that he submitted for the competition, Janosch Mallwitz formulates a concept that goes beyond the formal design of ecological clothing by focusing on the manufacturing of textiles and demanding the transformation of globalized production processes in the direction of sustainability. For him, sustainability and fashion are a challenging paradox because materially objectionable aesthetics are often culturally justified; and making them sustainable poses an enormous potential for development.

With his collection »Graduation«, Janosch Mallwitz presents a young, modern style with a sporty touch. He plays with elements from pop culture and switches between the functional and the absurd, creating a technoid romanticism.

 

With his installation for the final of the Humanity in Fashion Award, Janosch Mallwitz presented an imaginative visualization of textile production processes using numerous whirring, rattling and oscillating machines.

Anja Umann — »UMASAN«

 

 

 

The designer Anja Umann was born in Dresden and studied fashion at the AMD Akademie Mode & Design. Before she and her twin sister founded the first vegan high fashion label, »UMASAN«, her experience included work as a junior designer for Yohji Yamamoto in Paris.

 

UMASAN follows a strict vegan design concept which places a high value on ecological and humane production processes, organic and sustainable usage while eschewing animal products.

 

UMSAN sees itself as a part of a community of social / ecological activists who act as pioneers to show that life and prosperity don’t need to come at the expense of others.

 

 

Anja Umann

The collection’s design language is based on the philosophical and practiced wisdom of yoga and directly addresses the needs of a new generation with an increased awareness of sustainability.

 

In line with this philosophy, for the final Anja Umann created a Zen garden to present her collection in an atmospheric setting full of calm and tranquility.
