Lau­rie Isaac is the new Courts Fash­ion­ista Cham­pion!

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

Sev­en­teen of the na­tion’s as­pir­ing fash­ion de­sign­ers com­peted in the Courts sec­ond an­nual Fash­ion­ista Com­pe­ti­tion for a chance at walk­ing away with $2,500 in cash.

The com­pe­ti­tion, which was held on Fri­day Au­gust 28th at the Courts flag­ship branch, saw scores of St. Lu­cians in­store sup­port­ing their favourite de­signer. In the end, with a to­tal of 255 points, lo­cal seam­stress Lau­rie Isaac emerged vic­to­ri­ous. Ms Isaac, res­i­dent of Castries, was inspired by the Jul­son 3 piece liv­ing room suite. She ex­plained that the ac­tual colour of the suite was what inspired her firstly.

“First and fore­most, the colour was what caught my at­ten­tion; then it was the size. As most de­sign­ers, I de­sign for a cer­tain aes­thetic. I love to de­sign for all shapes and sizes. To me that is what makes you a true de­signer.”

Courts con­grat­u­lates Lau­rie Isaac on her tri­umph.

Com­ing in sec­ond was eigh­teen-year-old Cheris Fitz who was also inspired by the Jul­son 3 piece suite. She walked away with $1,000 cash.

Lo­cal vet­eran de­signer Perry Mar­tial placed third with a to­tal of 204 points af­ter his de­pic­tion of the Ruby 3 piece liv­ing room suite.

Courts would like to sin­cerely thank all of the par­tic­i­pants of the sec­ond an­nual Fash­ion­ista Com­pe­ti­tion and would like to once again con­grat­u­late the win­ners and com­mend the par­tic­i­pat­ing sev­en­teen on do­ing an amaz­ing job. The com­pany urges all young and as­pir­ing de­sign­ers to con­tinue to grow and de­velop their skills as they may be the next Courts Fash­ion­ista Cham­pion.
