Yiqing Yin Named President of PV Awards

The young Chinese designer takes over from Alessandro Sartori in the role.

YOUNG BLOOD: Chinese designer Yiqing Yin will preside over the jury of the PV Awards sixth edition in September, fabric trade show organizer Première Vision has revealed.

Yin, who was named creative director of Leonard in January, takes over the role from Berluti creative director Alessandro Sartori.

“The show, as a supporter of young fashion designers and creative innovation, welcomes the chance to collaborate with a young designer who represents the fashion of today, both global and exacting,” Première Vision stated.

To be held on Sept. 18, the awards will single out four innovative weavers at the trade show, which runs from Sept. 16 to 18 at the Villepinte exhibition center north of Paris.
