Calling all independent designers, sewing hobbyists and D.I.Y. crafters from around the world: Here’s your chance to win a BERNINA 3 Series sewing machine or cash prizes by putting your design skills to the test!
BERNINA 3 Series and BurdaStyle cordially invite you to showcase your best work, by competing in our “Party Through The Decades” international design competition. We’re summoning you to create a party look inspired by your favorite era in fashion history. Which decade represents the epitome of style: Are you mad about the 50’s? Do you swoon over the roaring 20’s? Your party look can be a dramatic evening gown, a dress, or even a tuxedo! Inspiration could be found in a painting, an architectural monument, film or fashion— we just want to see your best skills put forward towards creating a dazzling party look!
To enter the competition you must submit the items listed below to: submissions[at]burdastyle[dot]com with “BERNINA Party Through the Decades” in the subject line. The deadline for submissions is November 23rd, at 11:59pm EST.
1. Inspiration image from your favorite era. Where did you find inspiration for your look? Your inspirational image can be a single image or multiple images depicted in a mood board or collage. You can combine two decades if you’re so inclined— just remember, we’ll be looking for innovation, technique and gaiety. Please double check that your inspiration image is at least 600 pixels wide.
2. Head to toe, front view photo of your party look. Please make sure your submission photo is high-resolution and at least 600 pixels wide.
3. Username, Project Name & Link to your project on BurdaStyle. Once you have sewn up your garment, upload it to BurdaStyle.com and put “BERNINA 3 Series” in the title. Simply copy and paste the url of your project into your email. Example: http://www.burdastyle.com/projects/black-ruffled-cape. Your project page is the perfect place to show off all other photos of your party look.
