Neil Marek in the Little Black Dress Contest

On May 10, Senior student Neil Marek's black dress was recognized in the Neal Hamil Modeling Agency’s “The Little Black Dress Contest”. Neil received 2nd Place with a scholarship of $1,500. The contest, in sartorial spirit, challenged fashion design students from Texas to design their own take on “The Little Black Dress”. Dresses were collected on March 2 at FGI Houston Career Day and were presented in a fashion show to a panel of celebrity judges. The top ten finalists were videoed during the event and footage played at a fundraising reception at the House of Blues in Downtown Houston. The photo of Neil and his winning design will be published soon. Congratulations to Neil!!
