The First Menswear Winner to be Awarded the H&M Prize

Huge congratulations are in order for Ximon Lee, (BFA Menswear Designer of the Year 2014). As one of eight finalists in the international H&M Awards to present in Stockholm, the 24-year-old Parsons graduate became not only the first U.S. designer, but also the first menswear designer, to win the H&M Design Award!

As a result of his high profile win Ximon was approached by VFILES to show in NYFW on February 11th so he is frantically working on the collection for his second show of 2015. His year is certainly off to a good start.
Definitely one to watch.

Thanks Ximon for making Parsons Proud!ximon_post3
