JCK Tucson hosted so many talented designers and amazing collections, but three designers took home the coveted first-place wins. In partnership with Uncommon Goods, Overstock and O, The Oprah Magazine, our three judges selected winners based on their respective criteria.
Wife, mother and former lawyer, Lee Ann Jones of Lee Jones Collection shares how much it meant for her to win the JCK Tucson Design Challenge and how it gave her the ability to tell her story and cultivate relationships with others.
“Entering the Design Challenge gave me a platform to tell the story behind the Fairy Dust Collection, as well as showcase what differentiates my designs. Winning first place in the Uncommon Goods Design Challenge and third in the O Magazine Design Challenge was a huge honor and an amazing opportunity to meet and really connect with industry leaders and designers. I left JCK Tucson inspired by the experience and am looking forward to continued growth, both personally and as a designer, as these relationships blossom.”
