on Monday,May 09,2011 22:05


One of the 10 finalists for the Skintimate Studios Ready for Everything contest, Jacqueline Moran, earned her spot with her eco-friendly dress design, according to The St. Augustine Record.

Moran, who is from St. Augustine, Florida, decided to use a design that couples both style and environmentally-friendly fashion.

"Bestowed upon my conscience has been the love of things outside my person such as Mother Nature" Moran wrote in her submission to the contest, according to the news source. "A fashionable yet eco-friendly clothing line will make a difference one garment at a time."

The St. Augustine native is competing with nine other designers from all over the country for a two-week internship with fashion designer Mara Hoffman. The winner will be announced May 18, the media outlet reports.

Fashion design students can expect keen competition when they enter the field and may want to take any advantage they can, including entering contests such as this one. These individuals can also earn up to $61,200, which was the average annual salary for professionals in this field in 2008, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
