The Emerging Designer competition has become a HUGE success and has featured everything from Ready To Wear, Bridal, to Children's Fashion. I was lucky enough to graduate college and design along side a talented designer, Michael Wiernicki, who won the People's Choice Award in 2011. He was selected as a 'Featured Designer' for this year's runway.
Experience: Received his BFA in costume design from the College of Charleston; worked as a costume shop manager in CofC’s theater department; earned a spot in the CFW 2011 Emerging Designer Competition: East semifinals
Video below is of Michael's experience and vision, from Michael's Kickstarter page which he was able to raise over $4,000 to enable him to show is work in Fashion Week 2012.

This collection laces futuristic, international city wear with a timeless undercurrent. Our muse is a modern young woman who is progressive, eclectic, and urban but still appreciates classic style. Expect heavy, woven wool paired with softer, flowing chiffon, as well as textured stretch jersey and striated dupioni silk. VIA
