Suit from Raf Simons, shirt from Dior Homme, bow tie from Saint Laurent. Presenter: Aura Dione. Dress from Gucci, necklaces from Chanel and Boucheron.
You made a dress for Iben Hjejle and knew before that you would win, because you got to design a capsule collection on sale from August on. Has it been difficult to keep it a secret?
Damien: Can I say now that I knew? Yes, it has been very difficult and I only told my nearest family.
What did you look most forward to tonight, Aura?
Aura: To hand out the award for this important category and to party with the creme de la creme.

very proud and honoured to announce that damien ravn was awarded the ‘new nordic talent of the year’ award at the ELLE style awards in copenhagen on the 19th of may
Named by editors from ELLE Scandinavia, the ELLE Style Awards “New Nordic Talent of the Year” award has been given to the Norwegian fashion designer, Damien Ravn.
In celebration of this début award, the Danish fashion brand MUUSE joined forces with ELLE inviting design talent from the five Nordic countries to enter the competition. Ravn was chosen for his innovative use of modern materials and couture-like volumes achieved in the form of a sculptural evening coat and dress. In turn, Ravn will be invited to design a capsule collection under the MUUSE label sold on elle.dk and muuse.com as of August 2014.
"Every garment in this collection is made is out of a single piece of fabric carefully cut on a 45 or 90 degree angle. I feel that a design should never be sacrificed over a concept. The design is what’s most important, not the aspirational idea.
It’s a great honor for me to receive the ELLE New Nordic Talent of the Year award and to get such wonderful recognition for my work. Tak så meget!” -Damien Ravn
