Virtual and social games developer Sulake has today announced the conclusion of Habbo’s Spring Fashion Contest, declaring the winner of the seasonal festival as -Push, from Chile! The competition saw participants design a new garment to be sold in-game, with all proceedings made by item sales going to a charity of the winner’s choice. Teaming up with famous interior designer Martina Mondadori, Sulake is also proud to announce that, after deciding with the winner, they will donate the proceedings to Save the Children International.
Throughout April, Habbo players sent in a total of 917 entries of their creative pixel art clothing designs in an attempt to win limited edition badges, Habbo Club and Builders Club memberships, credits and VIP bundles. As well as being judged by an expert jury, the Habbo community also voted for their favourites to help decide the competition’s winner. In addition to creating and owning their own fashionable item which will be sold to players in-game, Sulake gave the decision for the winner to choose which charity the proceedings will go to. Sulake is now in the process of developing the design into an in-game item, and donating the money to Save the Children International after agreement with the winner, -Push.
To help judge the competition, Martina Mondadori offered a refined and experienced design acumen to the jury. Part of the board of directors of Arnoldo Mondadori Editore publishing group, in 2014 she established the renowned magazine Cabana, which focuses on Timeless Interiors and Decorative Arts. With an eye for design and innovation, Martina was excited to spotlight the level of talent submitted in Habbo’s Spring Fashion Contest 2021.
It was a pleasure to be a part of the Habbo Spring Fashion Contest jury!. The standard of the submissions was really impressive. It was wonderful to celebrate the creativity and imagination of the online Habbo community. Well done to -Push for winning, and I hope everyone enjoyed taking part in this competition!Martina Mondadori, Editor-in-Chief of Cabana Magazine

We look forward to hosting other design competitions in the future!Sulake CEO Vaitteri Karu
