Two Presidents of the Judging Panel for the Silmo d’Or Awards
An exceptional edition merits an exceptional event: Silmo’s 50th anniversary will see a unique Silmo d’Or awards ceremony. The panel of judges will be chaired by a duo of designers – Livia Stoianova and Yassen Samouilov, who head the ON AURA TOUT VU fashion house.
The designs created by ON AURA TOUT VU reflect the free-spirited nature of Livia Stoianova and Yassen Samouilov, who like to innovate and blend ancestral know-how, sophisticated design and precious materials… with a dash of humour thrown in! They love to distort fashion and glamour, garments and accessories, along with everyday items… setting out to surprise and “re-dress” the era in which they live. All their lines and collections are in the same unconventional creative vein. Their exhilarating ingenuity and desire to play with materials, light and colours blur the lines between what is real and false. They harness the exceptional talents of the best artisans and artistic professions to ensure the creation of unique and always surprising products with a “couture” ethos.
To be more in tune with this creative yet fashion-based dimension, the Silmo D’Or optical frames and sunglasses categories will be split into two: OPTICAL FRAMES – FASHION and OPTICAL FRAMES – DESIGN, SUNGLASSES – FASHION AND SUNGLASSES – DESIGN. They will be included within the usual categories that cover the whole spectrum of the industry’s talents: VISION, LOW VISION, EQUIPMENT, SPORT, CHILDREN AND TECHNOLOGICAL INNOVATION.
