International guests and enthusiastic fashion lovers arrived at the Cable Factory's long bench rows to wait for the results of the courageous designers from Aalto University’s fashion program. The evening's collection featured a record-breaking number of variety-rich men's wear. A total of 28 interesting pieces graced the venue’s cavernous hall; created by bachelor's and master's students.

At the end of the show, prizes were awarded. Of these, the Diesel Award went to Heini-Maria Hynynen. Sini-Pilvi Kiilunen won the Näytös17 Award, while Elina Äärelä nabbed the Marimekko Award.
