There's never been a more important time to support young designers in this country—what with the state of the economy and the increasing costs of showing new collections—so it's great to see major fashion corporations work with fashion schools, sponsoring competitions, and offering job placements right out of college.

At the annual FIDM fashion show, where students showcase their first collections, Guess challenged the young designers to create a look for Guess. Co-founder Maurice Marciano selected a winner (Brittany Vu's look, above), who was offered a design assistant job at Guess' LA studio.

Which look would you have picked to win?
