After the four finalists showcased their collections, it was left to the judging panel, featuring Roland Mouret, to make their decision, described as a 'close race'.

Presenting the prestigious prize was honorary chairwoman, Donatella Versace, who bestowed the Elena Kozhevnikova-designed trophy and £100,000 prize money to a tearful Hong. The young designer thanked her parents who flew in from Soul especially to see her show at the event in Covent Garden.
