Two Sustainable Accessory Designers Are Andam Award Nominees.

Yesterday ANDAM announced the nominees for its annual competition, one of the fashion industry’s longest-running prizes. Carine Roitfeld lead this year’s judging panel with Alber Elbaz, Hilary Alexander, Colette’s Sarah Lerfel, Jefferson Hack and Humberto Leon, as well as Renzo Rosso, and the Pierre Bergé-Yves Saint Laurent Foundation. Together they’ll grant the winner over $300,000 (more than the CFDA or BFC emerging desinger awards), a mentorship, and the chance to show their collection during Paris Fashion Week.

Past winners of the prestigious top prize include Iris van Herpen, Anthony Vaccarello, and Giles Deacon. This year two of our favorite accessory designers have snagged nominations for the prestigious award, Amelie Pichard and Hugo Matha!

Amelie Pichard, Andam nominee, launched her line of shoes and accessories in 2011.

Amelie Pichard launched her line of shoes and accessories in 2011. Pichard has since collaborated with Garrett Leight, Le Coq Sportif and most recently Pamela Anderson on a line of Vegan footwear & accessories.
