Inspired by Project Runway Pattern Design Contest Information
Press Release provided by Simplicity:
Aspiring designers and sewers are invited to compete in a fashion design competition that's inspired by Project Runway®. Creative fashionistas are challenged to design a look that others will want to make and proudly wear! The winner will receive worldwide distribution of their design and a trip to NYC, fashion capital of the world! Entries will be judged by Barbara Schneeweiss, Executive Producer of Project Runway® and representatives from Simplicity® Patterns, the creator and sponsor of this exciting competition, as well as sewing industry experts.
An exclusive licensing agreement between Weinstein Company, owner of Project Runway® and Simplicity Patterns enables Simplicity® to market apparel sewing patterns "Inspired by Project Runway". Simplicity® is the world’s leading manufacturer of fashion sewing patterns. Their Inspired by Project Runway patterns have garnered worldwide attention and become instant collectibles as each season passes. Now, one lucky aspiring designer from the United States has a chance to turn "pro", by having their winning design added to the Inspired by Project Runway® pattern collection worldwide!
Fashionistas, style-mavens, aspiring designers and home sewers are invited to enter and become part of the world of fashion design! This is a rare opportunity to compete in a fashion design contest where the prize enables the winner’s name to be forever attached to the Simplicity® and Inspired by Project Runway brands. "We are looking forward to reviewing the entries and introducing a fresh, new design to our Inspired by Project Runway pattern collection and the world of fashion" says Bonnie Simmons, Design Director at Simplicity®.
The Grand Prize Winner will receive a trip to New York City to visit Simplicity’s offices for meetings with the Design and Production staff. The winning design will be produced and distributed worldwide as an Inspired by Project Runway® pattern in the Simplicity Pattern Collection. The Grand Prize Winner will be photographed and featured on Simplicity.com and the winning design will be photographed for the Simplicity Catalog
