Fashion Students Wins LG Mobile Contest

In celebration of their first sponsorship of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, LG Mobile Phones gave fashion design students the opportunity to compete for a internship with a famous designer and $5,000 cash in the 'Fashion Talks with LG Contest'.

Students currently enrolled full-time at any of the participating Fashion Design schools were eligible to submit sketches of their original designs inspired by the 'LG Life's Good' theme and must include an LG Mobile Phone as an accessory, or integral part of the design. The contest consisted of a series of three rounds. In the final round, the grand prize winner was determined by the number of votes their design received during the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week as visitors to the LG's "Life's Good Lounge" voted for their favorite design.

An Academy of Art University student won 1st place. Ji In Kim, MFA Fashion and Textiles won $5000 and an internship with an LA designer. Jung Yeon Hong (MFA Fashion and Knitwear) and Staci Snider (MFA Fashion Design) were both selected as finalists for the competiton and event.
