To all those with a singular fashion point-of-view (everyone!):
Simplicity Creative Group and Stephen “Suede” Baum invite you to enter the Suedesays™ Rock Your Look Contest. This sewing contest seeks to highlight the creativity of avid sewers and stylists who create original, unique garments using the Suedesays™ patterns as a “jumping off point.” Suede, a contestant on season 5 of Project Runway®, challenges his fans and apparel sewers to fashion a garment, adding personal style and fashion-point of view to make the looks their own. Contestants should create a short video, no more than 2 minutes in length, to present the garment, the style inspiration, and sewing construction. Entries can then be submitted via the Rock Your Look Contest page on Simplicity.com: http://www.simplicity.com/rockyourlookcontest.aspx.
All videos will be reviewed and added to the Suedesays™ Rock Your Look YouTube™ channel; video submissions will be available for viewing by the public. The channel http://www.youtube.com/user/SuedesaysRockYrLook currently features a personal introduction from Suede. Suede will also serve on the panel of judges, looking for the most original, well-constructed, and well-presented garments.
- One First Place Winner will receive a Brother Project Runway® Sewing Machine (value: $399.99).
- One Second Place Winner will receive a Simplicity® Deluxe Rotary Cutting and Embossing Machine (value $199.99).
- One Third Place Winner will receive a Simplicity® Autumn 2011 Catalog and 2 (two) Free Patterns from the SUEDEsays™ Autumn 2011 Collection (value $63.90).
Entries must be received by not later than 11:59 p.m., EST, on May 31, 2011. Winners will be notified by e-mail not later than June 30, 2011. For official contest rules and additional contest details, please visit http://www.simplicity.com/rockyourlookcontest.aspx.
