PARIS — Smart money: It’s what young designers need, and why fashion prizes are layering on coaching in addition to cash to ensure solid business development.
Dutch designer Iris van Herpen, who catapulted 3-D printing to the fashion forefront with her sculptural dresses, is the latest talent to receive such a boost, having scooped up the 2014 ANDAM Fashion Award. The prize of 250,000 euros, or $341,630 at current exchange, will enable her to grow her brand, which was launched in 2007.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
