Phillip Hawkins is emerging
Phillip Hawkins is one of the 10 finalists in this year’s Westpac Young Designer Awards…and he’s one of three from Dunedin! The first time I saw this collection was at the 2012 iD International Emerging Designer Awards and I must say it was my absolute favourite entry. Phillip’s collection is loosely based around a series of photographs by Belgian photographer, Jane Kempeners. Jane captured images of concrete modernist monuments which were abandoned in desolate parts of Eastern Europe.
