One in a Million Designer Challenge


The long wait is finally over. After months of planning, creating and designing, we have completed the second round of the One in a Million Designer Challenge. The judges’ scores have been tallied, and we are ready to publish the top ten finalists who will go on to compete for the one million Lindens, and the title of One in a Million Designer.

On behalf of all of us at Runway Cafe, I want to personally thank each and every designer who stepped up to the challenge. It is always difficult to have to eliminate anyone in something like this, knowing that they have all worked so hard with so much anticipation to come out at the top. I am truly proud of everyone who submitted entries to this event, and hope that at the very least it inspired you to think outside the box and stimulate your creative thinking. Regardless of whether your designs made it this far or not, you are all winners to us because you took a chance and put yourselves on the line. That was the entire purpose of this challenge, and you did yourselves proud.

So without further ado, we present the finalists who will appear in the October 15th show at Patch Thibaud Auditorium. The names are listed in alphabetical order and have no relation to overall scoring positions to prevent bias.

1. Ambergris Baphomet
2. AnaLee Balut
3. Carrie Snowpaw
4. Heliione Roi
5. Jasilyn Amiot
6. Mirja Mills
7. Pidria Bonetto
8. Rogue Falconer
9. Tatanka Kaligawa
10. Ziamela Loon

We thank all of our sponsors of this event, including Best of SL, Maniera, BeStyle, ICON, TOO SEXY, Inworld Inc and DMI. On behalf of myself, Jena Adder, Nino Heartsdale, and all our models, we congratulate you and look forward to seeing you on stage on the 15th!!!
