Following in the footsteps of haute couture corset maker and embroiderer Hubert Barrère, designer Gabriele Pezzini, fashion designer. and multi-talented artist Stella Cadente, designer Mathieu Lehanneur has been named president of the jury for the SILMO D'OR awards.
According to SILMO representativesw, Mathieu Lehanneur's work is conceptual yet anchored in reality, and he "plays with the boundaries of design while flirting with architecture." In his own words, "every project is the result of background and research and developing the scenario takes up almost 90% of the design time-scale, before the design comes to fruition."
Inaugurated in 1994, 234 products have been honoured with SILMO d’OR awards, selected from among the entries: 119 from French companies and 115 from companies abroad.
