FEMMY Gala celebrates 50th anniversary

Apr '08
Keeping the UFC's 50th Anniversary in mind, the theme of the 2008 Student Design Contest was “the future of lingerie in the year 2025.”

After presentation of concept boards in October of 2007, the SAIG committee selected nine Fashion Institute of Technology students as finalists in the student design competition.

Each student received $100.00 for materials. The committee reviewed garments in progress last December and final garments were due one week prior to the Femmy Gala.

The prize money graciously donated by this year's contest sponsor Calvin Klein Underwear was $2500 for first place, $1500 for second place and $1000 for third place.

The Underfashion Club Inc supports education for a better industry tomorrow.

At the Femmy Gala on February 5, the student contestants presented their designs, including their original storyboards, to the over 650 industry members in attendance.

Attendees were given the opportunity to meet the students and to discuss with them their concept and garment before voting.

The SAIG committee would like to congratulate each student for a job well done. Special thanks and congratulations go to Professor Colette Wong, Chair of FIT's Fashion Design department for her dedication to her students and to the design contest.

The winning student designers for 2008 are:
1st Place: Jessica Ng
2nd Place: Jessica Soto
3rd Place: Amy Krotzer

Each of the winning students will have their garment photographed by Andrei Jackamets and featured in an upcoming issue of Best of Intima Magazine. The six remaining student designers each received a $100 Victoria's Secret gift certificate.
