Chicago Fashion Foundation: 4th Annual Scholarship Event
On March 3, 2011, the Chicago Fashion Foundation hosted the fourth annual Scholarship Event at the Chicago History Museum. Nine local fashion students presented their original designs to compete for the grand prize of a $5,000 scholarship. Project Runway alum Peach Carr served as the evening’s host, and she also presented her line of tennis inspired sportswear.
Chicago’s leading social blogger Candace Jordan, 24/7 Chicago Host Catie Keogh, local designer Lara Miller, and Giorgio Armani’s Amanda Monteiro served as the competition’s judges.

I fortuitously captured a photograph of the winner, Ana Leon, presenting her favorite look to the judging panel. The competition was actually scored ahead of time to allow the judges a closer look at the garments. This photo was taken in the middle of the judging process.
And most importantly, congratulations to the winner Ana Leon!
