Pet Fashion Week’s recent runway show opened with a sneak peek into the future of pet fashion design.
Three outstanding designs created by students from the Fashion Institute of Technology walked the runway to open this year’s show. In leading up to this – a FIT student pet design contest was presented by CRYSTALLIZED – Swarovski Elements – with 16 student designers being selected as finalists. Out of the round of 16 a panel of expert judges selected two runners up and one winner.
The runner-ups included: Sojung Leem for her sparkling, flat-backed crystal party dress and Emily Simpson for her creative, crystal transfabric carrying bag.
And the winner of the 2008 CRYSTALLIZED/FIT Student Pet Design Contest is Lyudmyla Muzyka for her beautiful sparkling dress and shirt. Lyudmyla received high marks for her creativity in employing the CRYSTALLIZED materials while balancing that with subtle coloring and unique styling. We look forward to seeing more designs and creativity from her as her career progresses. Check out the video below to see the runway presentation of these three talented designers.
