NEW YORK, Aug. 12, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Luminous Diamonds, the new premiere fluorescent diamond jewelry brand, announced today the winner of the “Design Your Inner Light Challenge,” in collaboration with the Fashion Scholarship Fund (FSF). The challenge was launched this summer to identify and support emerging fashion designers through a national challenge inviting applicants to submit creative concepts that best bring to life the Luminous Diamonds brand philosophy, “Follow Your Inner Light,” with an innovative, fashion-forward garment design.
An esteemed panel of industry judges selected Sarah Solnet, a 2020 FSF Scholar and Fashion/Apparel Design graduate from Iowa State University, as the winner of the “Design Your Inner Light Challenge.” Sarah designed a garment inspired by the “Luminous Woman”—a person who symbolizes the inner light we all carry—with supermodel/entrepreneur and Luminous Diamonds advisor Coco Rocha as the muse. Sarah is receiving a $10,000 grant to be applied to her educational expenses. Additionally, her look will be fully realized and then worn by Rocha.
Renowned fashion designer Christian Siriano, along with judges Celebrity Stylist Mariel Haenn, Writer and Brand Consultant Chrissy Rutherford, Executive Director of the FSF Peter Arnold, President of Alrosa USA Rebecca Foerster, and Coco Rocha, will mentor Sarah throughout the design process.
