    - Proving that fashion doesn't always get all the glamorous awards, a plug that can fold down flat (for storage or travel) beat out Alexander McQueen's Spring 2010 collection for Design of the Year in London earlier this week. The winning design was created by a Royal Academy of Art student, Min-Kyu Choi. [Vogue UK]
