Alumna Is Finalist in E! Design Competition

Christoff's dress design as constructed by Andrianna Papell

Alumna Genoveva Christoff (CCAD 2009) is a finalist in the E! Live from the Red Carpet Design Contest.

According to a recent Columbus Alive article, the Fashion Design alumna heard about the competition on Facebook and quickly put together a design for a floor-length chiffon gown for her entry. Christoff's design was one of 670 entered; after a public voting process 25 designs were selected.

Adrianna Papell, a popular dress designer, then chose the top five designs as finalists and constructed one example of each.

The dresses are on display online where the public can vote for their favorite. The winning design will be worn to a Hollywood red carpet event by a celebrity, and its designer will receive a $2500 cash prize and a trip to Hollywood. The winning dress will also be included in the Adrianna Papell Spring 2012 Collection for E! Live from the Red Carpet, which will be available at Lord & Taylor.

The voting ends Jan. 22. To vote, click here. The winning dress will be revealed on E!'s Countdown to the Red Carpet Academy Awards special on Feb. 26, 2012.
