In our interview with Jean-Raymond from Highsnobiety #17, the designer recalls the more troubling times trying to maintain his brand amidst legal battles and a struggle with depression, “I had no money, I was being sued — all my accounts were in the negative,” he admits. “I probably had, like, debt of 85 Gs at that point.”

The runners up for this year's awards were Emily Adams Bode of menswear label Bode and womenswear label Jonathan Cohen, who will will $150,000 each.
