LIM College Student Wins $10,000 in Lord & Taylor Styling Competition


Grace Hinds wows panel of experts with her look for Spring '12

LIM College student Grace Hinds has won the $10,000 grand prize in Lord & Taylor’s “You’ve Got the Look” Student Stylist Competition.

The look Grace styled was selected by a panel of fashion experts, including legendary designer Carmen Marc Valvo, Lord & Taylor’s Editor-at-Large Suze Yalof Schwartz, Creative Director Corinne Brohme, and Fashion Director Paula Correri (who is an LIM College alumna) at a special in-store fashion show at Lord & Taylor's Fifth Avenue flagship last night. Voters also weighed in online and by text, with a total of 35,000 votes received.

Grace, who is a student in Prof. Fabrizio Babino’s Fashion Styling class, was one of 8 finalists (4 from LIM College and 4 from FIT) who dazzled the judges and audience. The other 3 LIM College finalists were Ayanna Zaire Cotton, Karen Hodgin and Alyssa Spirito. All did an amazing job.

The looks they styled will be on display on mannequins in Lord & Taylor’s famous Fifth Avenue windows (at 39th Street) until March 10.

Congratulations again to Grace and all the students who participated, and thank you to everyone at LIM College who voted for their favorite look!
