Turner’s Cartoon Network and retailer RockCoco have selected a winner in a fashion competition staged recently in Taipei.
The event marked the finale of the Project X Fashion design competition, a Cartoon Network campaign that began back in June by asking fans to design and submit ideas and sketches for garments inspired by the global hit animation The Powerpuff Girls.
The entries received an impressive 45,000 votes with 10 finalists showing off their designs in the Project X Fashion Show. Judges then picked the winner – Eli Lin, who took a cartoon-strip approach for her design.
“The Powerpuff Girls is a cartoon I have been watching since I was very young and I’m really happy to win,” Lin said. Her design will now be unveiled alongside RockCoco’s “Girl Power” collection for Autumn/ Winter 2017 and will be sold as a limited-edition piece across the Greater China region.
Clement Schwebig, Turner’s head of licensing for Asia Pacific, commented on the event saying: “The strength of The Powerpuff Girls brand has never been stronger and RockCoco’s designs for the upcoming season look awesome. The trio of Bubbles, Blossom and Buttercup – created using Chemical X – have providing amazing inspiration for this competition and the winner should be commended on her use of Cartoon Network’s colourful world of characters.”
