At the end of March 2017, New Zealand’s Dundedin Railway Station was the home to the 13th iD International awards for emerging designers. Australian Nehma Vitolis (a graduate of the Sydney University of Technology) took the $6,000 first place price. Her highly captivating “XXX” collection showed a new means of merging fabric and handcraft with technology while also showing off some old familiar shapes and silhouettes in brand new ways. Vitols was even seemingly able to blend between 2D and 3D in a mind-bending fashion. There’s a strong case to be made that this incredibly forward-thinking approach to design may well be a sign of major trends yet to come.
