Kevin Kramp takes home award at Italy's International Talent Support competition [UPDATED]

This past weekend, men's knitwear designer and Minnesota native Kevin Kramp participated in the ITS (International Talent Support) competition in Italy. Our hometown boy did well, taking home ITS’ first €3,000 MODATECA award, endowed by Deanna Ferretti, whose factory has created knits for Kenzo, Yves Saint Laurent, and Maison Martin Margiela. (via www.bb-fashions.com) Irenebrination recapped the show, saying that "Kevin Kramp turned knitwear into a way to present a collection of characters he encountered in his life, rather than just a fashion collection." Among judges for the competetion were Viktor & Rolf, Hilary Alexander, Antonio Berardi, Renzo Rosso and Mandi Lennard. Vogue UK also reported the news, as did The Daily Telegraph, which calls Kevin "one to watch."
