Make the Cut: Retro Honor Roll Winners!

It’s time for the fabulous finale of the latest edition of our Make the Cut Contest! Are you ready to find out whose stellar sketches made the Retro Honor Roll? Then, let’s dive right in…

Just to recap: We have three chic champs who were chosen via your Facebook votes, and two wonderful winners that were selected by Susan. All five peeps will receive a bounty of beneficence, including $500 cash, a sample of their garment, and their item will be produced and sold on ModCloth – with their name on the tag!

Now, without further ado, our community-chosen winners are: Christine Vu, Kelly McKernan Cavanah, and Cera Kelly! And, the dynamic designers Susan selected are: Clare Marie Myers and Emma Ramsey

A big ‘thank you’ to everyone who entered, and congratulations to our vivacious victors! We can’t wait to see your superlative sketches come to life. Be on the lookout for the Make the Cut: Retro Honor Roll Collection debut on our site in Fall 2012!

Want to make sure you don’t miss out on future design contests? Just head over to our Designer District, and sign up for email updates.

    Well deserved, ladies! Congratulations! 😀

    Thank you so much, Modcloth! The 9 year old fashion designer in me has been running up and down the house screaming at the top of my lungs for the last week. SO excited!

    Really wishing Chloe Quinn’s design had made it too, though!

    I’ll sign up for Designer District right now since I’m kicking myself for missing the second Make the Cut contest. But congrats to the winners and thanks to Modcloth for holding the competition.

    WOW. I really want all of these but I think I am going to want to see what they look like as actual dresses and not just the drawings! Any idea on prices yet? *want want want* lol.
