 Supima presented the 11th annual Supima Design Competition. A collective runway showing of participating designers from the nation’s top design schools presented capsule collections of women’s eveningwear made exclusively with donated Supima cotton fabrics. Additionally, this year Supima linked up with talent recruitment firm 24Seven to market the Supima Design Competition finalists’ portfolios to fashion houses across North America and Europe.


The winner, Lili Shi from Fashion Institute of Technology, was selected by the below panel of industry judges, and received a $10,000 check from Supima to kick-start her design career. Additionally, Lili will present during Paris Fashion Week later this month.
