Clear your schedule during New York Fashion Week, because I have your first invitation. The 13th annual Supima Design Competition will be hosted in a digital, dynamic format! You don’t need a coveted invitation this season, you can watch the runway, and competition, from home!
The Supima Design Competition supports emerging, talented design students from our top fashion schools to help them create fabulous capsule collection using Supima cotton fabrics. You will have the opportunity to view the collective, digital runway show online this season in September during New York Fashion Week. The winner of the competition will receive a $10,000 cash prize, as well as coveted industry recognition. It’s really an amazing show that I have enjoyed seeing in person in New York. It is really exciting to be able to view this show from home; and for you to have the opportunity to see it too! You will love it!
The six designers who earned a spot in this season’s runway show are:
- Amanda Forastieri-Drexel University
- Sakura Mizutani, FIDM
- Jenny Feng-FIT
- Jennie Nguyen, Kent State University
- Terrence Zhou, Parsons School of Design
- Kyra Buenviaje, Rhode Island School of Design
In addition to these six, fabulous designers, Bibhu Mohapatra will be returned for the sixth time as mentor to the finalists. Isn’t this amazing!!!
Stay tuned! As we get closer to the event, I will provide you with a link to the event as well as the date and time. Get excited! This is your first invite to New York Fashion Week in September 2020!
