Elle Magazine put forth their second annual Fashion Next competition in New York City this past Friday as one of the many events for New York Fashion Week, in an effort to support the next generation of fashion designers, according to Fashionista.
The runway show displays the work of fashion design students who show potential. Each student was able to send two looks down the runway at the Lincoln Center. Faith Thornburg earned the title of Elle Design Award winner, while Lindsey Hopkins won the Maybelline New York Design Acheivement honor, according to the news source.
Last year the school selected was Rhode Island School of Design but this year, it was students from the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD). Both winners earned $25,000 grants in order to produce their collections and start off their careers, the media outlet reports.
According to the Huffington Post, the students generally did a good job with their designs, however some of the creations seemed to be a little over-the-top and a bit theatrical.
