Local and Regional furniture and electrical superstore Courts has announced that fifteen designers will participate in the company’s Fourth annual Courts Fashionista competition. The event will be held this coming Friday September 1st 2017 at Courts Marisule from 3pm and is open to the general public.
Each finalist would have had to pick up a copy of the company’s “We’ve Got it All” brochure as part of the current primary promotion. Designers were invited to draw a sketch of a piece of clothing which would represent any item featured in the brochure. The competition which was open to both amateur and professional designers gives aspiring designers the much needed platform to showcase their talent and skill. Being in its fourth year, the call for designers was well received and the company acknowledged receipt of well over 20 entries all with beautiful and intricate designs and equal chances of capturing this year’s crown.
