Oscar Designer

Fashion Design

Congratulations to Fashion Design alum, Rania Salibi, winner of the Oscar Designer Challenge. Rania and her custom design, along with an Academy escort, graced the Red Carpet during the Oscar Pre-Show. “The Oscar’s are like the Super Bowl of fashion, so it’s definitely a great feeling,” says Rania. “This is the first time I was introduced to the public, and I can’t think of a better way…
I mean I’m sure there are other great ways, but this was certainly an honor. I got to meet a lot of new people, see what other designers are doing, and be validated as an artist. It’s a big stepping stone, and very encouraging for me especially since I knew I was competing against designers who have been around for 10 or 20 years.”
