Hostess with the Mostess, Rachel Zoe, got stuck in NYC traffic. The show must go on! 2013 Supima Design Competition

Supima. You know, as in Supima cotton...that stuff that comprises the majority of the clothes we wear.... 


So, they have a cool design competition and I was lucky to get invited to this year's presentation at Lincoln Center during New York fashion week.


Supima partnered with: 
The Fashion Institute of Technology 
Kent State University 
The Rhode Island School of Design 
and 
The Savannah College of Art and Design. 

Each school provided 2 top designers, from the graduating class, as finalists in this year's competition....and let me say...

I DON'T KNOW HOW THE JUDGES PICKED A WINNER!

All the designs were wonderfully inventive and interesting. 

And the winner was to be determined by the following panel of judges: 
Designer, Rachel Roy
Model, Jessica Stam, 
Gilt Groupe Co-Founder, Alexandra Wilkis Wilson
Costume Designer, Janie Bryant
Designer, Douglas Hannant
Past CFDA Exec. & Lead Intl. Fashion & Design Consultant, Fern Mallis
Vice President of Marketing & Promotions for Supima, Buxton Midyette

Yes, Rachel Zoe made it in time to catch the show and present the winner, Morgan Selin with her $10K cash prize...so all was well...and somewhere I read that Selin ended up refusing the cash prize?? Don't quote me on it...I think I saw the article in WWD....To find out everything you'd like to know about WINNER MORGAN SELIN, CLICK HERE!

Anyway, the show was great, especially the gift bags we got which were sponsored by AG Adriano Goldschmied, Brooks Brothers, CC Corso Como, Hanky Panky, Michael Stars, Splendid, Smartwater and Zonin...Loved it. Thank You!
