After weeks of entries, selecting finalists and voting, we have our 2010 D*S Scholarship winners! This was an exceptionally talented group of students, and I’m so grateful for all of the amazing young designers who took the time to enter. It gives me such hope for the next generation of great artists — I can’t wait to see what comes next for all of you. To everyone who voted, thank you for your passionate support of these students. Your encouragement and votes were so valuable, and I look forward to showcasing more of their work in the near future.
