Dreams came true for Sami Smith of Arlington High School (pictured far right) when she won a trip of a lifetime to New York City! Sami was a finalist in the national “Sketch Your Dress” contest run by Seventeen Magazine and David’s Bridal. Selected out of 2,000 entries from high school students across the country, Sami was able to have her vision of a purple asymmetrical prom dress (pictured above on the far right) designed and come to life before her very eyes!
Sami’s winning trip took place in February, and she states, “For three days I felt just like a celebrity! I love the energy of the big city and can see myself living there someday.” She will graduate from Arlington High School this June and is taking pre-requisites at Seattle Central Community College in hopes to be accepted into their Apparel Design program this fall.
Congrats Sami! Your future in the fashion industry looks very bright!
