Designer Tomasz Donocik receives his award.

Las Vegas–In its 20th year, the COUTURE Awards announced this year’s winners to an audience of nearly 1,000 retailers, editors and designers.

“When we cut through all of the pageantry and ceremony of COUTURE, we are left with the reason we all came together in the first place—the designs,” COUTURE’s Director, Gannon Brousseau explained from the stage. He then went on to thank this year’s judges, Marion Fasel, Maria Doulton, Lou Guarino, Paul Schneider and Irene Neuwirth, before thanking the designers for making the judging process so difficult by submitting so many fabulous entries. In addition to the design categories, presented below, Designer Todd Reed received this year’s Human Spirit Award.
