Congratulations to our Allen Edmonds Student Designer Finalists!
Patrick McCabe/ The 7th Avenue
Ick Jeong/ The Austin
Melanie Berger/ The King’s Point
These three designers were selected from the work of six semi-finalists via a public voting process on the Allen Edmonds website and a judging panel that included Esquire Magazine’s Nick Sullivan, Dean of the School of Fashion Simon Collins, and Allen Edmonds’ Chief Marketing Officer Colin Hall and Noel Traum (CAD Specialist).
Ick, Melanie and Patrick will soon return to Allen Edmonds headquarters in Port Washington, Wisconsin to oversee their shoes prototyped in the factory. These finalists are now competing for the grand prize of $5,000, and second and third prize of $2,500 Awards.
Congratulations to the six semi-finalist fashion designers selected back in January. Patrick McCabe, Gahee Lim, Louis Dorantes, Victoria Hayes, Ick Jeong Ahn and Melanie Berger received one on one CAD training and had their design entries profiled on the Allen Edmonds site for voting, reference the video webisodes.
