It may be a high street retailer, but we applaud H&M's attempt to promote and support new designers.

We are looking forward to the announcement of the winner of the 2014 H&M Design Award  tomorrow as we were incredibly impressed with last year's winner Minju Kim. This year, contestants were given €5,000 to create a line and for a chance to show their wares at Mercedes-Benz Stockholm Fashion Week.  The winner will receive a €50,000 cash prize and have pieces from their collection sold at select stores next fall.  Above and below are some images from the finalists' portfolios.
