Each year, a limited number of Precious Talents receives the opportunity to participate in the fair and to make connections within the business. During the year that follows, it is up to the participants to develop their skills and to leverage their opportunities to compete for the prestigious title Precious Talent of the Year.
The jury pays particular consideration to the design, products, craftmanship, business strategy and market success during the year that has passed. In addition to the honor and a fabulous glass statuette, the winner receives an full stand at Precious and a year of free PR at the Swedish Fashion Council.
The jury’s motivation:
“This year’s Precious Talent of the Year has found her own niche thanks to excellent craftsmanship and a fashion conscious design language. She has become well received in record time by both the fashion industry and the fashion press. All the signs point towards a rapid national and international expansion.”
Med ett genuint intresse för Sveriges historia och kvinnors känsla för vackra smycken har årets vinnare hittat ett uttryck som ger både emotionell styrka och stilren modern design.
Hennes starka vilja ger sig även uttryck i företagsbyggandet med långsiktiga mål och redskapen för att nå dit kursen pekar”
The jury said:
“An almost perfect design language which appeals to both the national and international markets. There is also a clear and consistent strategy that even includes the packaging. With its quick start and impressive strategies for all aspects of the business, combined with thoughts on sustainability and a long-term focus without being classic or boring, this talent has impressed the jury.”
The jury said:
“This year’s winner of the Precious Talent of the Year combines a personal and powerful expression in her collection and an equally powerful commitment in her work to establish her collection and brand, not only in the jewellery business but also in the wider context of fashion and media. Many of her pieces are inspired by Nature’s objects and creatures. The might oak, the tree of knowledge, is an appropriate symbol for the ambition and the professionalism in her craft as well as the business approach of this year’s winner, Fanny Ek and IOAKU.”
The jury said:
”Cecilia Suchanek and SUCH shows an attractive combination of creative design, high quality manufacturing and a very professional approach to business making, leading to strong growth in terms of distribution coverage and sales. In other words, one could say that Cecilia has SUCH Precious Talent”.”
