RadiciSpandex corp. honors designer Tadashi Shoji and announces the winners of the 2011 “Stretch to the Future” design competition with the Fashion School of Kent State University.

RadiciSpandex Corp., maker of RadElast brand spandex, revealed on April 21 the winners of the eleventh annual Stretch to the Future design competition held with the junior class at the Fashion School of Kent State University.

Tadashi led a diverse judging panel of apparel industry experts, including members of the charitable organization The Underfashion Club, which sponsored the contest's lingerie award. The panel included Kristy Chen, the competition's Grand Prize winner in 2005 who is now an assistant designer at the contemporary label Doo.Ri. Scholarship winners were selected in the categories of eveningwear, activewear, swimwear, lingerie and a Grand Prize overall.

Finally, Madelyn Winfield, a native of Zelienaple, PA, earned the swimwear prize for a one-piece suit made of fabrics donated by Darlington and Sextet Fabrics and a cover-up constructed in Polartec fabric.
