Project Modest: Meet our winner

After a very tough decision-making process, we're extremely proud to reveal the winner of the region's first ever modest design competition, and quite possibly the fashion world's next big thing...
Project Modest: Meet our winner

We are utterly thrilled to reveal the long-awaited winner of Project Modest - our first-of-its-kind fashion design competition that is sure to launch one very talented designer's career. 

Back in July we teamed up with Yas Mall, Abu Dhabi to offer a seriously amazing opportunity to a budding fashion designer. As the region’s first modest-wear design competition, the concept was simple: sketch your modest design, enter, and wait...

After endless deliberation by our esteemed judges: Sara Al Madani, modestwear designer and entrepreneur, Sharmila Murat, General Manager of luxury department stores Tryano and Saks Fifth Avenue, Alison Tay, Grazia’s Editor in Chief and Olivia Phillips, Grazia’s Digital Editor, our winner was chosen.

Drum roll please…

Congratulations Emily Grace Angelie d. Lerioas!

Your designs inspired our judges, and will now be brought to life to walk the catwalk at Modest Fashion Weekend in Yas Mall, from 4 - 6 October. 

The winning designs

Not only that, but you will also be joining the team for a two-week internship at Grazia, as well as being joined by fellow designer and judge, Sara Al Madani for a mentorship lunch and have your design created and sold at Tryano in Yas Mall.

We would like to thank everyone who entered and we look forward to discovering even more rising stars next year.
