Young French designer, and London St. Martins School graduate,  Astrid Sarkissian was awarded the 2013 Inside White Award at Milan's White Show (the country's most famous Fashion Trade Shows) this week.

Astrid's first collection combines   Parisian elegance, London's extravagance and Italian silk printing knowhow (all the collection is printed in Como - renown for its silk excellence)

The inspiration for the collection comes from the universe, with the silk acting as a canvas the designer combines colourful precious stones and the grandeur of Gothic and Baroque architecture. Geometric details or natural elements borrowed from the animal world such as beetles or birds blend together to achieve astounding designs.
