The classic fix-it tool has gone rock n' roll cool. Duck brand duct tape, in partnership with Vervegirl magazine and Fanshawe College's Fashion Design Program, today announces the winner of the Duck brand "Style a Star with My Name is Kay" Contest, giving one talented Fanshawe student the chance to design a vibrant, fashion-forward outfit for popular Universal Music artist My Name is Kay.

The contest challenged Fanshawe students to create an outfit made primarily of Duck Tape for My Name is Kay, offering $2,000 for the best Duck Tape design. To participate, students created sketches of their anticipated outfits and submitted the sketches for review by a panel of judges. After the judges approved the designs, the students had just a few short weeks to bring their Duck Tape fashions to life.

Soaring to the top of the charts, Krista S. won first place and $2,000 by creating attire that truly expressed My Name is Kay's fun and funky personality. Her winning outfit included an intricate top covered in a neon geometric Duck Tape design and a corresponding pink and blue miniskirt. Wenhui L. won second place and $1,000 for her brightly colored Duck Tape jumpsuit and Sanel F. received $500 and third place for his funky leopard Duck Tape shorts and matching white and pink top. Delaney B. received $250 for creating the apparel that was closest to the original sketch.

A panel of judges composed of representatives from Duck brand duct tape, Vervegirl, and Fanshawe College's Fashion Design Program, as well as My Name is Kay herself, selected the winning designs based on originality, workmanship, use of colors, adherence to submitted sketch and quantity of Duck Tape used.

"This contest was an amazing opportunity for our students," says Loren Carriere, Professor with Fanshawe College's Fashion Design Program. "Fashion has got to be forward thinking, and designing with Duck Tape definitely encouraged our students to push the envelope and think about style in a new and unexpected way."

Student participants also had the chance to submit their creations to www.vervegirl.com and encourage the Vervegirl community to vote on their designs. First place winner Krista S. was also the "fan favorite," winning a $200 gift certificate and a Duck Tape prize pack.

"We couldn't be more thrilled with the results of this contest," says Patti Sack, Assistant Communications Manager with ShurTech Brands, LLC, the marketers of Duck brand duct tape. "While Duck Tape continues to establish itself as a handy repair tool, it's also building a great following as a cool design medium. We are so impressed by the Fanshawe students' ability to capture My Name Is Kay's style and express it with a unique material like Duck Tape."

An American original, Duck brand is known for its quality and innovation, which now includes a vibrant assortment of many colors,prints and licenses. Duck Tape brand duct tape is available nationally at mass merchandise, craft, hardware, home center, food, drug, office, auto and specialty retailers in colors like aqua, fluorescent green, pink, orange and yellow, and prints such as Mustache, Graffiti and Zig-Zag.
