Sam Kori George wins Oscars Designer Challenge

America's fashionistas spoke and their votes are tallied. In a national competition to design an original gown to be worn by an awards presenter on the live Oscar telecast, it came down to one emerging designer Sam Kori George.

Sam Kori George, a couture designer from Chicago, was one of seven finalists for "Oscars Designer Challenge." Model Lauren Gish wore George's creation on the Oscar stage and during an Oscars Red Carpet 2009 pre-show interview. It's a show-stopping, strapless, form fitting, platinum gown with handmade orchids adorning the lower right side.

"I am honored and thrilled to win 'Oscars Designer Challenge.' My dress is what I imagined an Oscar award escort should wear and I wanted to do justice to the magnitude of this event," said George. "My dream is to become the next household name as a designer."

"We conducted an emerging designer search and we're pleased to have had designers participate from across the country in the 'Oscars Designer Challenge,'" said Academy Awards fashion coordinator Patty Fox. "All of the submissions were spectacular and Sam Kori George won in the great company of talented designers."

George's name will continue to be on the map of top designers and a designer to watch in the near future.
