The REMIX Silver prize and the OA Special Award went to Finish Designer, Annika Heikinheimo, she told the jury that she finds her inspiration from art, graphoc design, in particular from old advertising posters

The Bronze price was awarded to Yuya Itoh, for his somptuous draped mink dress with crossover shrug inspired by the landscape and solid dynamis seen in Sesshu's ink paintings

At REMIX this year, IFTF launched a third prize category, 'Pimp My Coat'. The new 'Pimp My Coat' category provides designers with the opportunity to rework a vintage full length mink coat and redesign it to reflect future design trends. US Master's student, Thom Olson, scooped the award for his two piece creation, which used both the jacket and the skirt of the original vintage coat.

The concept was devised by the IFTF's Young Fur Traders' Committee to help demonstrate the sustainibility of fur.
