Augustin Teboul's runway shows are part of the official Berlin Mercedes Fashion Week schedule.
The jury for this third edition of the Dorchester Prize was composed of Kenzo Takada, Nathalie Rykiel, Chantal Thomass, Frizoni Bruno, Jean-Jacques Picart, Lorenz Baumer, Harumi Kossowska Rola and Alexandra Golovanoff.
