Phoenix Fashion Week received numerous submissions from fashion students around the Valley, but Classy's design ultimately received the honors.

"I knew I would be competing against top designers from different schools around Arizona, so when I heard my design was chosen, it really made me feel proud and accomplished," Classy says in a Phoenix Fashion Week press release. "I love the thought of people wearing my designs as part of their fashion statements! Winning this opportunity has motivated me to start my own T-shirt line very soon."

Classy's sketch will be produced by Phoenix Fashion Week, and displayed and sold at the Style Villa Marketplace during the annual event, which will take place from October 3 through 5 at Talking Stick Resort. Classy will also be recognized at Phoenix Fashion Week and will receive a $1,000 scholarship toward her education.

The T-shirt will also be sold at four Cabana properties in Arizona, including Cabana on McClintock, Cabana at the Pointe, Cabana on Mill, and Cabana on Thomas.
