This past Friday, I took a little road trip with my mom, to attend to Fashion X Austin – Bernina Presents: BLANC Design Challenge; in where fifty nine designers entered the design challenge by sketching a primarily white look inspired by the Swiss Alps, the home of BERNINA. From those fifty nine designers, the top 12 finalists were selected by a panel of 9 esteemed judges and a fan vote. Each of those 12 submitted an actual garment based on the sketch for a final round of voting. Click here, to view all 12 designs.
I had my eyes in one particular designer, SoLa, which honestly, was my favorite one out of the 12 finalists. I even score one piece from the runway, which I can not wait to share with all of you soon.
The winner of this challenge was no other than Neil Marek. I have to say that his collection was very unique, and I can see why he was everyone’s favorite! Congratulations Neil, and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for you!
I would like to thank my mother for being the best date ever. It was the best mother-daughter time, and as she mentioned, it was nice to get out of the normal routine. Also, I would like to thank her for being my photographer for the weekend. There was times that I think she was going to tell me, ENOUGH photos missy LOL. I love you mom, and thank you for everything, and for always being there for me!
