Local Designer in Finals for National Magazine Display

Article excerpt

Local designer Jazmin Jackson's hope of having her fashions featured in a major magazine may soon become a reality.

Ms. Jackson, 27, of Wilkinsburg is a finalist in the Elle x Byco contest, which will give one designer the chance to have a sketch produced, sold and spotlighted in the January 2014 issue of Elle.

The contest started with more than 250 entries, which Elle editors narrowed down to 25. Readers voted for the final five, which includes Ms. Jackson's blue-and-white patterned Carolina kaleidoscope fit and flare dress. Elle editors will select the winner.

See more of her designs at jazmeen.org.
