Posted November 13, 2018 05:18:57 A Sydney fashion designer who was honoured for his work in The Shining movie series has been named as the winner of a $20,000 prize.
The winning entry for the $20k prize was made by a Sydney-based designer named Laurence Williams.
Williams is the creative director of designer fashion brand Laurence’s Clothing, which also makes accessories for the film’s stars including John Hurt and Sean Penn.
“I think he did a very good job with his work,” said Laurence, who is a member of the Australian Council of Fashion Designers.
“I was very lucky to have been chosen by him, and I think he has an amazing sense of style and a great sense of humour.”
Mr Williams was awarded the $200,000 (AU$235,000) prize by a panel of Australian and international fashion and fashion design awards board members.
“He’s one of those people who’s got that very unique ability to put the pieces together and then just create a new look that’s fresh and different,” Laurence said.
“A lot of designers don’t have that, so it’s something that they don’t really get to really appreciate.”
That’s something I’m sure everyone in the industry will be looking at for a long time.
“Laurence’s clothing line, which has been in the works for about five years, is based in Sydney’s Fitzroy district and was launched in October 2016.”
The fashion industry in Australia is quite small, so you don’t get a lot of awards for doing really good work,” he said.
Laurent Williams, the Sydney fashion design designer who won the $40k prize.”
It’s kind of like a way of getting people involved and putting on a show,” Mr Williams said.
Mr Williams, a 25-year-old Sydney-born artist who was born in England, said his work for The Shining has helped him build a reputation as an expert in the film.”
This film is the most famous in cinema history, so I think that’s why people think I’m one of the best,” he told the ABC.”
And the only way you can really do that is if you know what you’re doing.
“Mr Laurence also works for the International Film Institute of America, which is an industry trade association.”
We’re proud to have this award and also be recognised by the Australian and New Zealand Film Awards,” he added.”
You can’t help but think of it as a badge of honour for what I do.
“Mr William said he hoped to win a similar award for his design work for a film he is working on called The Big Sick, which he said he hopes will be released in the next couple of years.”
My idea is to try and use film as a tool to inspire people and bring out the best in them, and to see the world through that lens,” he explained.”
There’s a lot more that can be done with the film industry, I think.
