Mary Katrantzou Awarded 2010 Swiss Textile Award

>> The Swiss Textile Award for the past two years has gone to American designers — Rodarte and Alexander Wang, respectively — but this year, Greek-born Mary Katrantzou beat out Jason Wu, Duro Olowu, Adam Kimmel, Juun J, and Damir Doma to take home the 100,000 euros (approx. $142,150) prize. "I'm stunned. It was such a big buildup, and I cried backstage so I think that says it all," says Katrantzou, who plans to put the prize toward her next collection, which she describes as "a progression of [the Spring 2011 collection], it's not as thematic, and it's darker than this season." Wang, who presented Katrantzou with the award, said the prize enabled him to "develop the textiles which will be sold in [our] store that's going to open in New York next year." [Vogue UK]
