Introducing The Cosmo Design Team

First we want to offer a huge thank you and congratulations to all the twelve finalists!!! Every single one of them is amazingly talented, ambitious and creative. We wish we had a budget that allowed us to work with each of them because we would be honored to have ALL of them on our team. This has been one of the hardest decisions I've ever had to make and so, this is the most bitter-sweet blog posting ever! Although we wanted all twelve, we are super excited to get to work with the six we chose!

Here they are:
Leah Killian
Debbie Olsen
Yukari Takanashi
Danielle Layton
Maren Benedict
Natasja Verbeek

They will be posting projects with the new lines soon, so keep your eyes out. Also, give a huge congratulations to anyone you know who put themselves out there for this call...... that takes a lot of guts! We appreciate everyone's ambition.
