OtterBox Collaborates with Project Runway All Stars

FORT COLLINS, Colo., April 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- OtterBox brings designer style to life with the newest Symmetry Series patterns, designed in collaboration with fashion-forward reality show Project Runway All Stars.

'Green Diamond' and 'Pink Swirl' Symmetry Series cases are available now for iPhone 6/6s, iPhone 6 Plus/6s Plus and GALAXY S7. The cases were designed in collaboration with Philadelphia-based designer and Project Runway All Stars contestant Dom Streater.

OtterBox partnered with Project Runway All Stars for a design challenge presented on the April 28 episode. Designers competed to create a signature look that brought together high-fashion design with high-tech protection in the Print on Print Challenge, an homage to the intersection of technology and fashion. Philadelphia-based designer Dom Streater won the challenge and the opportunity to work with OtterBox on her very own Symmetry Series case design.

"I remember seeing the other contestants' and when Dom's came out, she was the natural winner for me and for OtterBox," said Project Runway All Stars guest judge Nina Garcia. "The graphics, the color and the personality of the protective case says so much about your personality and your personal style."

For the challenge, Streater designed two prints that worked together to walk down the runway. The Symmetry Series case graphics are based on two of Streater's favorite original prints.

"It was such a thrill to win the challenge. I feel like it was tailor-made for me," Streater said. "Phone cases are a natural accessory, it just worked so well and I had a lot of fun working with OtterBox."

Symmetry Series helps keep smartphones safe from bumps, shock and scratches in a super slim, sleek form.1 The case combines style and OtterBox Certified Drop+ Protection with wraparound graphics that provide visual appeal from every angle.

Limited edition 'Green Diamond' and 'Pink Swirl' Symmetry Series are available now for iPhone 6s, iPhone 6, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 6 Plus and GALAXY S7 exclusively at Verizon Wireless retail stores, on verizonwireless.com and otterbox.com. To learn more, visit otterbox.com.
