Helping Hart Challenge at SCAD



I recently had the great honor of judging a fashion competition hosted by Helping Hart at SCAD here in Atlanta. Helping Hart is a charity organization born out of the tragedy of Hurricane Sandy. Their mission is to donate an article of clothing for each item purchased from HelpingHart.com. The teams of students had 72 hours to take a box of men's clothing from Hartwell Industries and transform them into new garments with Helping Hart's mission of giving back in the face of tragedy in mind. All of the teams went above and beyond and really impressed myself and fellow judges.

With some fellow fashionistas and bloggers: Cheryl Webster of The KaShonna Files, Me, Allison Mitchell of Jezebel Magazine and Tiffany Davis Olson of Tiffany Style Blog.

It was such a difficult decision to choose the winning team with such great talent present, but ultimately Team FNX (pronounced Phoenix) claimed victory. Their creativity and ability to create such quality garments in a limited amount of time proved to be the winning factor. They produced feminine garments complete with ruffles and dip dyed details out of masculine articles of clothing including a golf shirt and a white men's button down. They went so far as to have a photo shoot, create hang tags with a logo and had a beautiful vision with a clear story of a phoenix rising from the rubble of tragedy. Congratulations to Team FNX and many thanks to SCAD and Hartwell Industries for the amazing competition and opportunity!

A special thanks to Shawn Warren Imaging for all of the above photographs and documenting the event!
