RadiciSpandex Names Carmen Marc Valvo To Judge Design Scholarship Contest

RadiciSpandex Corp., Gastonia, N.C., has named Carmen Marc Valvo to serve as designer judge and honoree for its eighth annual “Stretch to the Future” Design Scholarship Competition. The competition encourages design students in their creative development and in their use of fashion fabrics containing technical fibers such as RadiciSpandex’s elastane fibers. This year’s contest will take place in April in New York City.

Entries will be submitted by members of the junior class of The Fashion School of Kent State University, Kent, Ohio. The school also maintains studios in New York City and Florence, Italy, where students may spend one semester of study.

Valvo — a celebrated designer whose fashion collections have been sold in top-of-the-line department stores such as Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus and others since 1989 — will lead a panel of judges including fashion editors and journalists, fashion school faculty members, and textile executives. The panel will judge entries in garment categories including eveningwear, swimwear, women’s sportswear and fantasy/bridal wear; and will award one Grand Prize, one First Prize and one Second Prize scholarship from among all categories and one “Best Of” prize in each category. Prizes will be awarded at a reception in New York City in May, at which time also Valvo will receive the “Stretch to the Future” Designer Honoree Award.
