After winning our O’Neill Girls Generation Next design competition (tied with Nahal) Grace An’s school, Vista Murrieta, decided to celebrate by hosting a pep rally! The pep rally was an annual academic award ceremony which also featured a runway fashion show of O’Neill product and Grace’s winning dress! We were more then happy to be there and congratulate her in front of the school. Check out a couple behind the scenes pictures and enjoy our recap video from our 2011 GenNext!
The O’Neill Girls 2011 Generation Next design competition and music event, which was presented by Teen Vogue on October 15th 2011 in Hollywood was a huge success. The Design competition marked the end of a six-month design program based at O’Neill’s headquarters in Irvine, Calif. had five students from local Southern California high schools present their original dress and handbag designs on the runway, featuring an O’Neill Swim fashion show with international supermodel and O’Neill brand ambassador, Elyse Taylor. The event was sponsored in part by Paul Mitchell, who also provided all the hair and makeup for the runway shows, and was streamed live on our O’Neill Girl’s Facebook fan page, facebook.com/oneillgirls.
