– and the results of our Afternoon Tea Party contest are in!
This spring Preciosa hosted its own virtual version of this quintessential English custom. Select jewellery, fashion and fashion accessory designers were invited to choose their favourite Preciosa & Pantone Jewellery & Accessories Colour Trend from among the SS2016 palette (Cupcake Sweetness, Citrus Punch, Fruity Sundae or Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake). They then created and submitted a design celebrating their chosen delight.
The designs that came to us from all over the world were, in one word: incredible! Our expert panel had quite a time deciding, but after considering design originality, ingenuity of the concept, and the creative use of the selected SS2016 Colour Palette the deliberations of the judges are in and we have our top three contest winners.
Third Prize was awarded to Mrs. Iveta Hlobilová from the ArtFashion Atelier in Znojmo, Czech Republic for her avant-guard metalic necklace that entranced the judges.
The Second Prize went to Mrs. Martina Bartůňková and Mr. Ondřej Bělský of the Jablonec nad Nisou (Czech Republic) FaBos, s. r. o. Their bright, airy and playfully stylish ladies hat scored a direct hit with our expert panel.
And last but not least…
the Top Prize went to British designer Mrs. Ada Zanditon (London, England) for her eloquently rich and intricate showstopper necklace. Zanditon’s spectacular creation will be on display at the upcoming Premiere Vision Paris and you will most certainly see all three designs featured in our activities throughout the upcoming year!
We thank each and every designer who participated in this inaugural contest and send out hearty congratulations to our top three winners!
