Chaise Weldon was recently named the local first place winner in The Art Institute of California—Los Angeles’ Passion for Fashion Competition in the Fashion Design category.

The Art Institutes Passion for Fashion Competition gives high school seniors the opportunity to use their flair for fashion and eye for style to earn tuition scholarships.

Weldon, a senior at Mira Costa High School, earned a $3,000 tuition scholarship to study in a fashion program at The Art Institute of California—Los Angeles.

In addition to her tuition scholarship, Weldon will progress to the national round of The Art Institutes Passion for Fashion Competition where her entry will be judged against other local winners from throughout North America for the Competition’s grand prize: a half- tuition scholarship to an Art Institutes school, and a VIP trip to New York City to include a “meet and greet” at Seventeen’s New York City offices, lunch and a $500 shopping spree at DKNY with a Seventeen Style Pro, and a $500 gift card to shop anywhere in the Big Apple.

In the Fashion Design category, entrants were required to submit three images of original sketches of a summer wear garment.
