TOMS Shoe Project

As a co-sponsor of TOMS shoe project, CVAD and the Fashion Design program supported a competition for design of TOMS shoes. TOMS shoe project created by Marian O'Rourke-Kaplan, each student was given one TOMS classic shoe to redesign as they saw fit. 39 shoe designs from Junior and Sophomore students were juried by the Fashion Design faculty members on April 7. Cash prizes were awarded to 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners. Design winners were invited to attend Private reception for Blake Mycoskie at Golden Eagle Suit of Union on April 13. Congratulations to Junior student Cassie Bumpous for receiving 1st Placc, Junior student Jelyn Hobson for 2nd Place, and Sophomore student Reagan Whitaker for 3rd Place (photo provided by Jelyn Hobson).
