First Friday: High Cotton features designs from NC State students
A paisley design created by a N.C. State University student will soon become part of the spring bow tie collection at High Cotton.
The downtown Raleigh men’s accessories store will present eight contest finalists from its third annual Collegiate Design Competition. The debut of the designs is part of High Cotton’s First Friday event this month.
Voters will have until December to pick their favorite student-created paisley design, said High Cotton founder and owner Judy Hill.
Paisley designs originated in England, taking cues from Persian and Indian art. One of the most notable shapes in paisley designs is one that resembles a twisted teardrop.
High Cotton began in 2009 in Charlotte.
