"Being nominated for the Emerging Designer award was already so exciting but to win is the cherry on top of an amazing year!
I feel so grateful to be able to do what I love everyday and constantly astounded by how supportive our design community is here.
So many people have helped me get to this point and for that's something I will cherish for the years to come. Thanks to Adriana & Danielle, Team TDF and Laminex for this honour."
