Robert “Robbie” Richard is a senior Design student at the University of North Texas who’s “interview suit” got him second place in a national competition. Richard was one of five finalist in the Design Your Future competition presented by the Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities. The finals were last month and Richard came away with a $4,000 scholarship. Richard describes his suit as a modern interpretation of a classical menswear staple – the American-style two-button suit. His was gray with a metallic sheen and peak lapels.
Last year, senior Neil Marek took first prize in the HACU competition.
Richard’s suit will be modeled in Fashion at the Fountains, a fashion show organized by the student organization MODA at 7:30 p.m. October 22nd at the Library Mall on campus. For tickets and more information, visit http://unt.orgsync.com/org/moda
