Fashion design students submit their creations to college competition

on Friday,April 01,2011 19:04


Individuals who are interested in fashion design may want to know about a competition at Texas Tech University in Lubbock to create a couple articles of clothing. This is the second year the program, which is called Denim Runway, has challenged students to design a pair of jeans for both males and females, according to the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal.

This year the contest is incorporating a casual wear segment, which allows more students to enter. The winner of this competition will receive a cash reward, and a trip to Columbia and Guatemala to see how jeans are mass-produced at manufacturing facilities, which may give them the insight on how each step of the fashion design process works, the newspaper reports.

Students who are looking to obtain their degree in fashion design may want to participate in every opportunity they can because this is an extremely competitive field. The amount of jobs between the years 2008 and 2018 is only going to increase by 1 percent, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
