The luxurious garment was created by -Push, a Chilean Habbo player and winner of the seasonal event with over 900 entries
Helsinki Finland, July Xth 2021 – Virtual and social games developer Sulake has today announced that the fashion garment design, which won the Spring Fashion Contest, is now available to purchase in-game, with proceedings to be donated to Save the Children International. The conclusion to the seasonal event saw Sulake announce the winner, -Push, and work with them to develop their kimono garment design into a fully-fledged, pixelated Habbo clothing item, which is now available to purchase as a rare item, exclusively through the Habbo Shop for one month only.
In April, Habbo players designed a total of 917 entries of innovative pixel art clothing creations in an attempt to win limited edition badges, Habbo Club and Builders Club memberships, credits and VIP bundles. The competition’s finalists and eventual winner, -Push, were judged by both an expert jury and the Habbo community themselves, and the winner worked with Sulake to decide that the proceedings would be donated to Save the Children International.
“We are incredibly excited about bringing -Push’s creative rare kimono garment to life as part of the Spring Fashion Contest prize and donating the proceeds to Save the Children International” said Sulake CEO Valtteri Karu. “We are glad that we reran the popular fashion design contest and are amazed that we received over 900 high quality design submissions. We hope that you enjoy the winning kimono design and help raise money for a pertinent cause”
The spring fashion contest was part of a seasonal campaign during which Habbo players participated in fashion school events through different games in Habbo, including fashion related quizzes, dress up games and fashion show preparations. Debuting in 2016, Habbo Fashion Month is an extremely popular period with the community, due to the events and number of unique clothing items and accessories that are released.
