This year’s Adora’s Designed by Kids for Kids program winner is Clara H, whose submission made it all the way from Hendersonville, N.C. This year’s contest was for a beach-themed outfit, for which Clara drew inspiration from a piece of blue and white striped fabric.
Adora Dolls has announced the latest winner of its Designed by Kids for Kids program. Isabella C., an 8-year-old from Florida, designed the ”Pretty Little Cowgirl” outfit that will be added to production next year.
The program, which is in its second year, encourages young designers to submit drawings in hopes of seeing their ideas come to life. The winner also gets to select their favorite charity to receive a donation from Adora Dolls.
Last year, Adora launched its Designed by Kids for Kids program, which gave kids a chance to work with the company’s California design team to create an outfit for one of the company’s 18-inch Friends dolls. The contest closed on March 31, and Adora recently announced its Young Designer for 2015: Isabella C., of Orlando.
Eight-year-old Isabella designed a Cowgirl outfit, and will start collaborating with Adora’s design team to bring it to life for next year. She also gets to choose a favorite charity for donation.
