2010 scholarship voting: part 2 (grad students)

by Grace Bonney

Alright! It’s time to dive into our next round of talented finalists- graduate students! These 10 designers have quite simply blown my mind with some of their designs and I will definitely be lining up to buy some of these pieces when they hit shelves. If you’re looking for inspiration, these designers definitely can provide that in spades. Congrats to the finalists and thank you so much to everyone who took the time to enter! Best of luck to the finalists- xo, grace

Please note all students’ names are linked to their portfolios so you can see more of their work and find more information on the work shown below

UPDATE: Voting will end next Wednesday, December 22nd at 10pm EST
