2014 ELLE Taiwan New Talent Awards

2014 ELLE Taiwan New Talent Awards

ELLE is dedicated to supporting and uncovering new talent and creativity. Held in Taipei on July 22nd, the hugely publicized New Talent Awards recognize and award outstanding new talent among Taiwanese designers.

Each year, ELLE Taiwan invites several bright new Taiwanese designers to set up pop up stores and online shops showcasing ELLE’s support for local creativity.

The 2014 awards took the form of a runway show, followed by a prize ceremony where winning designer Jamie Wei Huang received a prize of half a million.

The awards' judging panel included International ELLE Editor-in-Chiefs of China, France, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, Korea, Spain and eight local notable fashion icons.

Based in London, Jamie Wei Huang received her MA in womenswear at the famed Central Saint Martins. She first debuted her designs in 2009, and since then has gradually built up experience in fashion and established her own namesake brand. Her rich interest in both fine art and womenswear are portrayed through her designs, and she has quickly gained notoriety in London, Paris, Milan and Taipei. In 2013, she was selected among the Top 5 finalists in the “Designer for Tomorrow Awards”, at Berlin’s Mercedes Benz Fashion Week.
