Best Newcomer 2014 - The Finalists

After a real marathon meeting with the Vienna Awards Jury, we are pleased to announce the three finalists for the STEFFL Best Newcomer Award. Tim Labenda, Simon Barth and Katrin Kafka have emerged as top 3 candidates with their ​​unique designs and visions.
We are looking forward to an exciting grand finale at the Gala of the Vienna Awards in April 2014. Until then, the young designers have time to finalize their collections and to set up their own fashion show. At the end, one of them will be awarded with the STEFFL Best Newcomer Award, including a prize money of 10.000 EUR, as well as retail space at DISTRICT1 on Floor 5 of our Department Store.
