Six Fanshawe students are finalists for the Visibility by Design competition.
The Visibility by Design contest was created in 2015 by Adorable Outerwear, a leading outerwear company headquartered in Montreal. Students from five schools in the Greater Toronto Area were challenged in September 2015 to create an innovative and stylish men's or women's outerwear garment that incorporates enhanced visibility features.
The six Fanshawe finalists are: Kira Brown, Stephanie Faria, Batya Issacson, Hana Al Jamal, Manar Shams and Nicole Tremblay.
15 finalists were chosen from 29 submissions. The finalists will showcase their designs at the contest's fashion show at Metro Hall on March 16 during Toronto Fashion Week. A panel of judges will select the designs which best incorporate enhanced visiblity features, with the first-place winner receiving $5,000 and the second and third-place winners receiving $3,500 and $1,500 respectively.
