MK Shannon Designs Awards for the International Fashion Film Festival

MK Shannon Awards & Rewards is happy to introduce a new custom award created for Cinémoi. Nevin Milan, the creative director for Cinémoi, contacted the offices of MK Shannon to express an interest in having MK design an original award for the annual International Fashion Film Festival. It would be the first time awards would be presented. Nevin and MK immediately connected and began working together to create a design that would capture the essence of this first event. Very quickly they developed an award that met all the imaginings of both. The design was developed and produced in pewter within 4 weeks! Shown below, you can follow along with the progress—the sketch, the model for the piece, and the finished award.
