This competition challenges fashion students to reinterpret famous looks that reveal animal fur, leather, wool and silk. The challenge these students face is to reinterpret the use of animal products with cruelty-free alternatives. Fashion designers like Alexander McQueen, Fendi, Gucci and Oscar de la Renta have inspired this competition. The designs within the competition are the final projects from AIC’s Specialized Patternmaking class, instructed by Jade Johnson. The judging will take place in an open forum by anonymous voters. The design with the most votes by the end of the day receives the first prize award!
