Sunsilk Competition.

So I found myself in the top 12 finalists for a design competion for Sunsilk, sponsored by Coles. We were required to submit a sketch that was inspried by the Sunsilk products, (and yes, I do mean the hair-care brand), that was slightly avant-garde and full of bright colour. For anyone that knows me well enough they would know that I tend to steer away from neons, fluoros or anything really bright! So this competition was going to always be a little bit of a challenge for me.

I must say the experience has been, and I'm sure will be, worthwhile. We have been able to experience being critiqued in front of panels of judges (nerve-wracking to say the least), and work with makers outside of university.

The final designs will be paraded down a runway after next week, and the winner receives a $3000 cash reward!

The (very basic) sketch of my design that was submitted for the competition.
The blouse underneath the dress will be made from this plum coloured organza silk; and the dress is made up from this neon-pink seude. To maintain the "bell-shape" silhouette, I have constructed a crinoline to be worn underneath the dress!

I will be sure to post images up of the final product, and hopefully images from the show too! And lastly (but not least) ...a congratulations to the other finalists:

Kim Ashlee Ord
Caitlin davies-Forsyth

I'm really excited to see how it will all come together!
