Outstanding Student Award Winners 2019 (Part I of III)

The winners of Surface Design Association’s Outstanding Students Awards were announced this past May, and what an amazing group emerging professional work we received. All the student’s work features innovation within the field of fibers and textiles and is part of a cohesive and professionally accomplished body of work.
