Henrik Vibskov wins Soderberg Prize


Danish fashion designer Henrik Vibskov was last week awarded £100,000 as the prestigious winner of the world’s highest value design award, the Torsten and Wanja Söderberg Prize.

Founded in 1992 by the Torsten and Ragnar Söderberg charitable foundations, the annual award – which is granted to an active Nordic designer or craftsman – has only once before been won by a fashion designer, Icelandic womenswear designer Steinunn Sigurd in 2008. Vibskov’s win was announced on Thursday May 19 2011 at the foundations’ administrative centre, the Röhsska Museum in Sweden, where he will also exhibit his work in conjunction with the prize-giving ceremony.

Working primarily in menswear (Spring 2011 collection pictured), Vibskov also creates inventive women’s fashions along with collections of practical, fashionable accessories. He is best known for his wacky yet innovative avant-garde style, and his grand use of music and performance on his catwalks. His work can be seen at henrikvibskov.com.
