JemCon 2007 - Official Fashion Design The winning design in the JemCon 2007 Fashion Design Contest have been chosen! Congratulations to Jesse Ward, who designed the winning fashion.

The prototype fashion was created by Jemgirl, and is modelled here by a custom painted Stormer™ doll.

JemCon 2007 - Official Fashion Design The theme for JemCon 2007's fashion was Showtime in Chicago. Voters chose one design from ten finalists, which they believe best brings the glamour and glitter, fashion and fame of the world of JEM™ to a contemporary fashion that can be worn by Jem™ and the Holograms™, the Misfits™, or their friends Synergy™, Video™, Danse™ and Clash™.

We'd like to thank everyone who participated in the contest, and we hope that the beautiful designs submitted will inspire others to enter in 2008 and beyond!
