SFU design student takes cash prize at Project OR – The Joy Trip Project
Spurred by first-time prize package including a design contract and cash prizes, San Francisco State University student designer Amy Dorie won Project OR Cycle 7 at Outdoor Retailer Summer Market 2011 with a woman's outfit, inspired by the outdoors and the Aventura brand.
Designed and constructed during the intense 48-hour concept-to-prototype student design competition, Dorie's prototype garments earned her a $5,000 Aventura design contract for the Spring 2013 line, a $2,500 donation to San Francisco State University design school's student outplacement program, a profile in Textile Insight and an all-expense paid trip to Winter Market 2012.
"I feel so fortunate to have been a part of Project OR," said Amy Dorie, winner of Project OR Cycle 7. "Preparing for the competition, collaborating with the judges and designers onsite, and now meeting so many people in the industry has been invaluable."
