LONDON — “I was enjoying my night already, no matter what,” said Huishan Zhang, who won the Dorchester Collection Fashion Prize on Tuesday night. “I thought I’d have another glass of Champagne then go home but now we might have to open a bottle!”
The designer was among four finalists including Emilia Wickstead, Barbara Casasola and Fyodor Golan in the running for the prize, which awards 25,000 pounds, or $40,430 at current exchange, as well as one-to-one mentoring and a two-night stay at one of the collection’s properties, which include the Beverly Hills Hotel, Le Meurice and the Hôtel Plaza Athénée in Paris.
