Based on Berlin but often found exploring the world, illustrator Theresa Grieben’s favorite motifs to sketch are plants and animals. For her winning design, she drew upon her experience living in New Zealand for inspiration, creating a postcard of birds native to the country.

Fashion designer Sabrina Weigt began selling brightly colored creations under the label THE KINT KID in 2011 before toning down her color palette under her eponymous label, which is known for its use of high quality materials and transparent production processes.

Originally from Bulgaria, Yoana Docheva of Myoo creates bridal clothing and couture for kids. Her Haute Couture skirt – which won the Community’s Choice award – was inspired by the falling leaves of autumn and created from petals of pink chiffon.

Anja Mayer’s winning New Talent award entry takes the form of a one-of-a-kind piglet doorstop, weighing 1kg and lined with felt and lovingly created by hand in Mayer’s Bavarian workshop.
