Announcing the Winner of Our Eye of the Buyer Contest

Eye of the Buyer Winner

The verdict is in — in style, that is. We have a winner of our first ever Eye of the Buyer Contest! So whose sketch alteration of Be the Buyer Sample #2582 succeeded in revising this dress design with a keen Buyer’s eye?

Our Be the Buyer Team selected Irene Pakpahan, whose sketch alteration won her a $200 gift certificate and will inform the production of this dress. That’s right — this one was “picked” and will be available soon!

In our contest announcement, ModStylist Marketing Manager Nicole advised,“Follow your first instinct! … revisions are meant to make something better, but not alter the design completely.” Irene immediately thought of traditional collared shirts with ties. “By adding a bow,” she explained, “the rest of the other design concepts flowed more easily.”

A round of applause to everyone who entered this contest! We hope you’ll keep using your Buyer’s eye to pick and skip Be the Buyer samples. And if you’re an aspiring designer, sign up for our Designer District to get the 411 on upcoming opportunities and contests!
