Continuing its push on denim fashion coverage (and advertising), Nylon magazine teamed up with CK Calvin Klein Jeans to launch a “Denim by Design” competition for third-year students at Parsons School of Design. Students were asked to develop comprehensive conceptual sketches of outfits using denim based on the Calvin Klein aesthetic, which were then developed into finished products. The entries were judged by design directors from the CK Jeans design studio and Nylon’s editorial staff, including Marvin Scott Jarrett, editor in chief.

The three winning designs — by Hye Jung Choi, Min Jung Ko and Laura Tawes — will be featured in Nylon’s September issue and also in the windows of Urban Outfitters in its downtown Manhattan store at Sixth Avenue and West 14th Street in early September. Nylon and CK Jeans are also planning an event tied to the issue, to which the winners will receive several VIP invitations. The first-prize winner, Choi, also was awarded a CK Jeans wardrobe worth $1,000, admission to Calvin Klein’s spring women’s collection fashion show and a two-month internship at Nylon. Ko, the first runner up, was additionally awarded a $500 CK Jeans wardrobe.
