Teen fashionistas are seizing the opportunity to showcase their talents in The Art Institutes Passion for Fashion Competition.

High school seniors from across the U.S. and Canada submitted their best fashion designs and fashion marketing, merchandising and retail management concepts to a participating Art Institutes school. The local winning entry from each school is sent to New York City where a panel of fashion industry professionals evaluates the entries for originality, feasibility and execution.

The panel of judges for the Passion for Fashion Competition 2010 includes: Leanne Marshall, Winner of Project Runway Season 5 and fashion designer; Suede, contestant on Project Runway Season 5 and fashion designer; Patty Hughes, a fashion show producer who has appeared as a fashion expert on The Rachel Ray Show; Leslie Bettison, Owner, Sol de Ibiza clothing store in New York City; and Bruce E. Dempsey, Vice President, Academic Affairs Specialist, The Art Institutes.

On the line is a full-tuition scholarship to study (i) Fashion Design or (ii) Fashion Marketing, Fashion Merchandising or Fashion Retail Management to The Art Institute school the winner represents in the Competition. And the fabulous part is that the grand prize winner in each category wins a trip to New York Fashion Week and a chance to meet staff from Seventeen Magazine.

"We continue to see the caliber of entries being submitted into The Art Institutes Passion for Fashion Competition increase every year. It's rewarding evaluating the hard work of these talented students who clearly demonstrate their enthusiasm and knowledge of the fashion industry within their entries," says, Bruce E. Dempsey, Vice President, Academic Affairs Specialist, The Art Institutes.
