The September 11 terrorist attacks inspired three student designers and won them the most creative award in a jeans design competition. The competition, organised by LCX in Tsim Sha Tsui, received 10 cutting-edge designs from 14 students from the Polytechnic University's School of Design. The winning creation is the brainchild of year three students Chris Tong Yuen-ping, 21; Maggie Shing Yu-shan and Vianna Ng Fai-man, both 22, who were moved by the tragedy and threats of war. They hope to remind people of the need for peace. 'We think peace is essential and something beautiful, so we wanted to get that message across through fashion,' Ms Ng said. They said the skirt, with layers of stripped denim and organza, aimed to bring a sense of relief, and the top's eagle embroidery symbolised freedom. The judges of the competition, up-and-coming local fashion designers Yannie Lam, Jason Lin Chun-hung and Truman Kong Chiu-man, think the winning design had style. Lin said: 'We were impressed when we first saw their oustanding sketches.' The judges also appreciated the young designers' workmanship. 'The cutting is good. You can see that they've put lots of effort into the cutting which is different from the rest of the entrants,' Kong said. The three winning collections are on display at the Club X zone of the store until Saturday.
