Premium leather retailer Danier and the Ryerson University School of Fashion have announced the winners of the 2010 edition of the Danier Design Challenge.

After the smoke had cleared and the judges (including fashion icon and host of Fashion Television Jeanne Beker, stylist George Antonopoulos and Globe and Mail fashion editor Tiyana Grulovi) had finished deliberating London, Ontario native Andrea Dineen was named the winner of the top prize. Dineen will get to see her winning design sold in select Danier stores this fall and received a $5,000 cash prize.

Jeffrey Worstman, President and CEO of Danier, poses with the top 4 designs by Meghan Erin, Robyn Gemzik, Andrea Dineen, and Jessica Tep.

Jessica Tep snagged the $3,000 second place prize while Robyn Gemzik and Meghan Erin split the third place prize of $2,000.
