Tomorrow night I will be attending a very exciting fashion competition, and you can be sure I'll be covering it right here on my blog. Wednesday April 20th is the Battle to the Nines competition at Club Sur. Although I'm not entirely excited about fashion events held at night clubs, I am excited to support ANY opportunity that gives our local artists an opportunity to shine. I won't have much original content to report on until after the event, so for now all I have is the information I wrote for the press release, compliments of Cabral Edwards Management.
Battle to the Nines (BTT9) Fashion Competition will be having their quarterly Fashion event Wednesday, April 19th, 2011 at Club Sur. The city of Seattle was scoured for 20 of the most talented Runway Models, Fashion Designers, Hair Stylists, and Makeup Artists to compete in this event. Battle to the Nines is a quarterly fashion competition and benefit for the Down Syndrome Association of the Mid Columbia. (DSAMC) - http://www.DSAMC.org. There will be a raffle hosted in benefit of the DSAMC with 100% of proceeds going to the Organization, as well as a percentage of proceeds from the door. The Down Syndrome Association hosts annual "Buddy Walk" to raise funding and awareness for children with Down syndrome.
Contestants will be divided into four teams that will be selected at random the day of the event. Each team will be given one hour to create two complete fashion looks to hit the runway. The looks will be judged by a panel of 6 invited guest celebrity judges. The winning team will receive an online spread with MF Magazine, a photo shoot with Gobo Photography, and will move onto the final round. All competitors will be receiving gift bags provided by the Producers and Sponsors. For more information on the BTT9 sponsors, please contact Maile@CabralEdwardsManagement.com.
Designers will include KRISTINE HAWTHORNE , KIMMI DESIGNS8 , MEGAN CHEREWATENKO and Sara Savino.
