on Monday,October 18,2010 20:10


The number of fashion designers in the U.S. is expected to increase to 22,900 between 2008 and 2018, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. As the industry continues to show growth, fashion design schools are becoming more popular.

Sacred Heart student, Blair Wheeler, is an example of an individual who is working hard toward a career in the industry. Now, a contest title may help him pursue his dreams, according to Voxy. This week, Wheeler was named the 2010 Newmarket Young Fashion Designer award for his entry at a recent fashion show. As a result, Wheeler will travel to New York City to participate in fashion week in February.

"For Blair this is an amazing achievement given the talent from the 70 initial entrants from around the country," said event organizer, Lea Worth. "His trip to New York Fashion Week will be truly life changing."

Wheeler will also receive $1,000 grant toward the Whitecliffe College of Arts and Design and a two-week design internship. Seven other designers out of the 34 entrants were commended for their exceptional efforts as well.
