Philadelphia Fashion Week, a three-day celebration of both local and global fashion designers, has honored Philadelphia University with the top prize in its inaugural student design competition presented by Macy''s.
The aspiring designers were tasked with creating a professional fashion show from top to bottom which fostered support from many of their PU classmates. The victorious show, including set design from university architecture students and support from merchandising students, was granted an encore this week.
"These students represent future generations of fashion industry professionals and I''m very excited to see what they''ve created for this special event," Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter told the Montgomery Media.
The competition, which also included teams from the Art Institute of Philadelphia and Moore College of Art & Design, featured the work of 17 student designers and recent grads and judged them based on creativity, show production, execution, marketability and the coherence of presentation.
The student design award was created to showcase the talents of up-and-coming designers in the Philadelphia area while granting exposure to local design programs.
