This week I am participating in a giveaway for EcoSalon, a fashion savvy, environmentally conscious blog which covers interesting tips & hints for those trying to make their lives a bit more green. Anyone can enter this contest by simply leaving a comment here, it couldn’t be more simple.

I am giving away one of my 3-tiered Tencel tops which is made from 100% Tencel, an environmentally friendly textile made from wood pulp cellulose, it’s the softest stuff I have ever worn. Why do a giveaway? Well, sometimes participation in a giveaway can provide traffic to your website or online store, get your line press which may lead to more sales or write-ups, and keeps the buzz alive. The last giveaway I did was for Cosmopolitain magazine and Caress soap, where I designed 3 looks based off of Caress’ new skin care line. For this project I was given a budget & a stipend, so I took the opportunity to design some more high-fashion looks and had so much fun with the entire project. Giveaways are a great way to get free advertising in exchange for one of your designs.

    Beautiful t-shirt, but unlikely that my size 46/XL butt will fit in there I guess. Left a comments nonetheless!

    Your job sounds a lot like my job in science, trying to get stipends left and right….isn’t it frustrating sometimes? ….sigh!

      It’s definitely available in size XL, I don’t want to leave anybody out! Running your own business and counting on projects and stipends, I agree, can be daunting! But things like this certainly help keep the momentum going. Good luck to you!
