Runway 3.0 Nancy Belfer Senior Collection Award Winner

Photo by Bruce Fox


The winner of the $1000 Nancy Belfer Senior Collection Award for Runway 3.0 is Tess Hinterbichler. Congratulations Tess on an outstanding collection!

Tess is an FTT Apparel Design Major whose interests lie within fashion illustration, computer aided design programs and garment construction.

According to Tess, she:

“was inspired by the architecture of the Musée du Louvre in Paris, which is both modern and traditional. Functionality and innovation are two key terms that come to my mind when dealing with technology. The function or purpose of my technology is transformation. I incorporated wire into certain seam-lines of my garments so that they can be morphed into a different look. That is what technology is meant for, to make life a little bit easier, a little more fun and a little more carefree!

The judges for the RUNWAY 2.0 show were Nancy Belfer [left, sponsor of the Nancy Belfer Senior Collection Award], David Tanner, Corey Moran, Joan Fedyszyn, Danae Dade and Mindy Shine. The award announcement took place after the evening show at the the post show reception.

A quote from Nancy,

“When I think about the RUNWAY 2.0 performance last Saturday night, only superlatives come to mind.  The production was so professional, thanks to Erin, so exciting and at times so outrageous.  But best of all, the STUDENTS.  Thanks to David and Elaine.  Each gave their very best….it was so heartfelt and joyous!  They were all winners and the enthusiastic response of the audience left no doubt about it.”

The jury was tied for the RUNWAY 2.0 award winner so they split the $1000.00 award to the following two student designers: Julia Oakes and Ti Zhou.

Congratulations to Julia and Ti!
