The Month of Design Festival has been postponed on spring 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but winners of BigSEE Grand Prix design awards for product design, interior design, architecture, fashion, wood, tourism and visionary awards have been announced. 

The BigSEE Grand Prix Award 2020 goes to Romania: BigSEE Fashion Design Award 2020 – Grand Prix in category Step forward Ioana Ciolacu / THE KNOT DRESS and Bare Necessities Cruise 2020.

Inspiration: This outfit plays around with the reinterpretation of haute couture. Made entirely of recycled scraps, it aims to mimic both the shape and the laborious techniques of haute couture, with a twist of sustainability. The production of this piece lasted for two month – from cutting the pieces to assemble it, which was all done manually, using only selected scraps from our previous collections.

Materials and techniques: Combining a knot like technique on a laser cut base, we sculpted a unique shape, meant to emphasise the creativity and prove the endless possibilities of sustainable thinking.”
