Two FIT students tie for CFDA's top scholarship award

Jul '13
In a first for the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT), two students have tied for the top award in the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) Scholarship Program competition.

Fashion Design majors Hannah Kim from Coppell, TX, and Peter Do from Upper Darby, PA, have each received a $10,000 award to be used toward tuition.

The CFDA Scholarship Program is a highly competitive, merit-based scholarship for full-time students attending the nation’s leading fashion institutions.

“The numerous competitions our students win, along with their consistent placement in the CFDA winners’ circle, speak to the outstanding talent of the FIT Fashion Design students,” said Joanne Arbuckle, dean, FIT’s School of Art and Design. “We are especially proud that the CFDA, whose members are the best of the best, has given this recognition and encouragement to these young designers.”

As part of their sixth-semester final project, FIT Fashion Design students were challenged to create a collection with a distinct philosophy. Several students’ designs were selected by FIT faculty and submitted to the CFDA scholarship competition for review.

Kim created a winning collection that was influenced by Italian design houses Dolce & Gabbana and Versace. Do’s fashion line, titled Subvert Traditions, was inspired by French artist Benjamin Carbone. Do also received Honorable Mention in the Geoffrey Beene Design Scholarship competition, which challenges students to look beyond conforming to trends and the practicality of business in order to advance the art form.

Yanan Zhao from Phillipsburg, NJ, received a $5,000 CDFA Scholarship award for his collection, which infused elements of Japanese culture.

Jessica DeVries from Ledgewood, NJ, received an Honorable Mention in the Liz Claiborne Design Scholarship. Her 15-look collection was inspired by the movie Catch Me If You Can, as well as Liz Claiborne’s dedication to the modern career woman.
