Now for a little recap on this years awards Ewa Domanska won Designer of the Year sponsored by Accent Clothing. Ewa Domanska is a Polish fashion designer who was sewing by the age of 8. Ewa comes from a creative background and grew up with a family in the tailor business which only encouraged and prompted her natural talent and flare for design. To start with it was just a hobby, designing clothes for friends and family and then from being a teenager she has been working as a freelance seamstress and fashion designer mixing simple and eccentric forms.
