on Monday,April 25,2011 22:04


Fashion design students across the country have the opportunity to intern for New York-based designer Mara Hoffman as she prepares for her show at the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim in Miami on May 18. Skintimate Studios sponsored the contest, which is called the Ready for Everything Sweepstakes, to seek out the next generation of designers. Contestants entered their styles and ideas that corresponded with the competition's theme, Ready for Everything.

The contest has moved onto the next phase as the 10 finalists have been chosen by a panel of judges. Now, individuals have the opportunity to vote for each of the designers on the Skintimate website to determine the winner.

"These top 10 women are extremely talented," said Hoffman. "I encourage America to look closely at each of their designs and select one that they feel embodies the 'Ready for Everything' theme."

Only one of the finalists will win the chance to work with Hoffman. However, the other nine designers will be given a prize package that will contain an assortment of items a fashion designer may need to start her career.
