“The panel of judges, which include Isabel Toledo, Norma Kamali, and Henri Bendel fashion director Ann Watson, gave top honors to Parsons grad Ardistia Dwiasri, who described her eponymous line as “wearable but with a lot of twists.”


“Dwiasri’s pieces the line between formidable head hunters (shape-fitting Belts and hidden closures) and modern femme fatale (French names and touches of cashmere mixed with Dwiasri’s signature wool).”


“Dwiasri’s technical background is evident in the functionality of her structured yet feminine, designs.”



“Something differentiating Ardistia from any other (young) designer is her point of view towards the fashion itself. Her design is consequently oriented to ready-to-wear with a very urban line and high value of wearability. Her concern to market demand with high business instinct makes this young designer advanced in vision.”
