Designing Opportunity™ has become hiTechMODA’s mantra of choice, and we are delighted to announce the results of this season’s Emerging Designer Rising Star Award. We want to recognize talent and encourage them to design for our show and the niche markets that attract our very discerning audience. On February 8th at 5 pm during the sustainable designer portion of hiTechMODA’s day long series of diversity shows held at National Geographic’s Encounter space in the heart of the Theater District, attendees witnessed four new designers each showcasing five looks in an emerging designer. A panel of industry judges who ranged from designers to models to consumers determined which of the budding newcomers would be awarded the prize. The judges all agreed that Steffany Allen Limited Designs was their designer of choice, the one that featured the most outstanding pieces sand showcased beautiful, fashion forward designs for the under served plus size woman. It’s obviously apparent that Steffany herself has realized that easy, hi fashion pieces that worked to flatter and complement the plus size female figure and frame are much-needed in the marketplace.
Steffany Allen is an image consultant and celebrity stylist and has worked tirelessly within the industry on photo shoots, editorials, campaigns, test shoots, magazines and catalogs making the plus size woman look stylish, dramatic and fashion forward. Steffany has been able to enjoy amazing success in the world of celebrity styling, and we wish her well as she embarks on this new phase of her career. May her winning the hiTechMODA’s Rising Star Award enable her to create more beautiful, stylish and infinitely wearable pieces and her signature kimonos for years to come. Her unique wearable art pieces perfectly underscore the sustainability message as they will be wardrobe jewels that can be worn in countless ways for many occasions.
Follow her on FB and Instagram on SteffanyAllenLimited. Her winnings include a photo shoot and editorial looks featured on all hiTechMODA social media postings. Look for those stunning visuals in the next upcoming weeks as we continue to promote our designer’s success stories as they reap the benefit of having participated in Season 3 of hiTechMODA diverse and inclusive, accessible and sustainable fashion shows.
Other emerging designers in the segment included Stephanie LaPointe, S&B Designs, and Failure is Not an Option (FINAO).
