Robin Ruth Student Design League


Alaundra Shealey won the first Student Design League contest at Auburn University. Her T-shirt design – depicting an oak tree with War Eagle cascading across it in toilet paper – was available online immediately after that November day.
But on Friday, it was for sale at the Auburn University Bookstore.
The Student Design League launched exclusively at Auburn in August 2015 as a partnership between the Department of Consumer and Design Sciences in Auburn’s College of Human Sciences and Robin Ruth, the leading fashion brand to travelers worldwide.
Shealey’s design received the majority of the more than 3,500 votes cast last year. The victory not only resulted in the production and sale of T-shirts with her popular design, but it earned her a summer internship at Robin Ruth’s New York headquarters.

Students at five additional schools – Florida State University, University of Alabama, University of Arkansas, University of Tennessee and West Virginia University – will compete among themselves to determine its top designer. The six school winners will vie against each other for two coveted summer internships at Robin Ruth.

Voting on this year’s designs will begin Nov. 14 and end Nov. 20 at 11:59 p.m., at The design earning the most votes will be announced Dec. 1.
