Three students at the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) who were named finalists in off-price specialty retailer Loehmann's NY Design Challenge competition, held exclusively with FIT.

Ou Ma of Beijing, China; Maor Tapiro from Brooklyn, NY; and Ying Wang of Xi'an, China, received the highest number of votes out of seven semi-finalists during a weeklong contest held on Loehmann's Facebook page.

A grand prize winner will be announced at a celebratory event on April 3rd, 2013 at Loehmann's Chelsea Store, 101 7th Ave at 16th street. The winning garment will be showcased in the Loehmann's Chelsea storefront window.

The competition, first announced by Loehmann's during its Fashion's Night Out runway show in September 2012, attracted 15 students from FIT's Fashion Design program, who each submitted up to three avant-garde evening wear designs using famous New York City landmarks as their inspiration.  Ma's design was inspired by the Guggenheim Museum; Tapiro's design was inspired by the Brooklyn Bridge; and Wang's design was inspired by The Highline.
