Apr '08
RadiciSpandex Corp. proudly announces that celebrated couture designer Marc Bouwer will serve as the Designer Judge and Honoree for the 2008 edition of the “Stretch to the Future” Design Scholarship Competition to be held in April with the junior class of The Fashion School of Kent State University.

Additionally, RadiciSpandex welcomes the intimate apparel trade organization The Underfashion Club as sponsor of the lingerie category award, which has been reintroduced to the competition.

Mr. Bouwer will lead a judging panel of fashion industry experts including journalists from consumer and trade publications, textile executives, retailers, RadiciSpandex representatives and members of the Underfashion Club.

The judging will determine the winners of four scholarships. A “best of” scholarship will be awarded in the categories of eveningwear/fantasywear, swimwear, and lingerie. A Grand Prize will then be selected from all garments submitted across all categories.

Mr. Bouwer will receive the “Stretch to the Future” Designer Honoree Award at a reception to be held in May in New York City at the Italian Trade Commission, where the winning designs will be unveiled.

“We are especially proud this year to be joining forces with the likes of Marc Bouwer and The Underfashion Club for 'Stretch to the Future',” said RadiciSpandex Corp. CEO Marty Moran.

“We're pleased to give the design students at Kent State University the opportunity to interact with an icon like Mr. Bouwer, who has set the standard for glamorous gowns in Hollywood and among socialites.
