Students Sweep Stylesight Competition

Students Sweep Stylesight Competition

I don’t mean to toot our own horn, but as one of the many fashion schools that participate in Stylesight’s student print competition, we have taken home our share of prizes — and this year isn’t any different.

Jennifer Isaza (senior BFA Textile Design major), Sarah Appiah (recent BFA Textile Design graduate), and Ruby Guerra (recent MFA Textile Design graduate) snagged the top three spots for creating some snazzy prints. For this particular project, each student chose one of four inspirations: Rave, Evolution, Hyperreal, and Composition.

In addition to getting their work and profiles will be featured on Stylesight.com the first place winner (Isaza) received $1,000 while the second place winner (Appiah) had the opportunity to intern in Stylesight’s New York or Paris office.

Here are some pieces of their work:
