Timeline for the competition was as follows:
8am. Students will be given their assignment and 30 minutes to come up with an idea and draw out their design.
9am. Students will be shuttled to a local fabric store where they will have 30 minutes and $50 to shop for their creation.

Meeting deadlines within the creative process is a real life objective that must be learned and mastered…says Sam Mustafa CEO of The Charleston Hospitality Group.
