Cotton Incorporated (the corporation "of our lives") is sponsoring a nationwide search for the coolest street style. Amongst the 48 finalists chosen by "Fashion Influencers," one person per each of the 6 regions across America will win a weekly prize of $1,440 (an incredibly arbitrary amount), and an all-expenses paid trip to the 24 Runway Show next year put on by Cotton. Here are some samples, to get your creative juices flowin':
