For the last three years, April Moore and Courtni Tyre have entered the Belk Southern Designer Showcase competition. For the first time this year, Moore and Tyre, who are the founders and designers of Shelby County-based clothing company three07, walked away as winners.

Three07 was one of five winners in the annual competition, which rewards up-and-coming Southern designers. Winning designs are sold at select Belk store and online.

In February, the duo learned three07 was one of 19 finalists in the competition. They traveled to Belk headquarters in North Carolina in mid-April for the next stage, which included presenting their designs to a panel of judges.

After being named a winner, Moore and Tyre returned to Belk corporate office to celebrate their achievement and meet with buyers. While there, they met with Arlene Goldstein, an Alabama native who joined Belk in 2006 and founded the Southern Designer Showcase in 2012.

Founded in 2010, three07 has been sold in more than 100 stores nationwide and the designs have been featured in Austin Fashion Week, New Orleans Fashion Week and Birmingham Fashion Week.
