The technically gifted avant-garde designer wins a cash prize of 300,000 euros and a year-long mentorship at the luxury goods giant. The two runner-ups, Hood By Air and Miuniku, were each awarded 100,000 euros. A jury made up of some of the biggest names in contemporary ready-to-wear, including Pack favourites Phoebe Philo, Riccardo Tisci, and Raf Simons, chose Tait from a bevy of young international talent.
