Sony Ericsson has announced winners of its design student contest that had been launched in October, 2011.
The co-project of the company’s colleagues in the Extras team and London College of Fashion required students to research design and produce creative concepts for new, wearable technology incorporating the remote display LiveView. The students were also secretly working on similar concepts incorporating the Android remote SmartWatch that was recently unveiled at CES 2012.
Now, Sony Ericsson has announced the winners of the project who will soon present the collections to the Sony Ericsson Extras team in Sweden, reports Sony Ericsson official blog.
The first winner was chosen by Sony Ericsson Facebook fans from a shortlist of 12 London College of Fashion finalists. Claire Monique Scanlon, created a two-tone print, jacket accessory for LiveView. She created it for fashion bloggers and it can be worn as a tassel from the jacket, a tie to wrap the jacket in cold weather or detached and worn on the wrist.
The Extras team chose the second winner, Dominique Taylor. She created a SmartWatch Fashion Collection featuring a range of high-tech clubbing garments with LED lights to create an illusion of length, size, neckline and hem. The SmartWatch attached to a metal chain can be worn as a necklace, bracelet or ring.
