So, remember how we posted about Daniel and Wesley winning that "Plastics Make it Possible" design competition? Well, guess what wound up in our inbox this morning? A press release! YAY!
Okay, maybe that's not very exciting to you. But here's what: Not only did we receive a press release from the fine folks at "Plastics Make it Possible" announcing the win and announcing that Daniel and Wesley will be showing their designs at the GenArt show on February 10th during fashion week in New York next month, they were so impressed with the hits and the commentary on this site that they promised us FOUR tickets to the GenArt show. Now, obviously, two of those tickets are going to us, so that means two lucky minions will get to go with us. Now, how to decide who gets to go? Prettiest minion? No, that's a little mean. Besides, we don't know what most of you look like. Most popular minion? No, unless we change our minds and decide that we LOVE arguments in our comments section.
How about this? We were poking around the PMIP site in their fashion section and came upon this article about an auction of vintage Bakelite jewelry. That got us thinking. There was some discussion about the use of plastics in fashion in the comments section of the previous post, pro and con. What occurred to us when reading the comments was how ubiquitous the use of plastics in fashion really is, from Bakelite to lucite, PVC to Nylon. It's not something we've ever really thought about before.
Here's what we want you to do: Take a good look at the contents of your closet and write us an ode to your favorite item made from plastic, whether it's a sequinned dress or the cruelty-free shoes you wear. No more than 25 words (in fact, brevity would be appreciated); just a simple "I love my lucite heels and I don't give a shit if people think I'm a stripper," or "My Bakelite bangles make me happy," or "My vintage polyester disco shirt gets me laid," or "My sequined jacket makes me feel like Liza," or "My PVC minidress goes great with a whip and a ball gag." You get the idea. Whichever two entries tickle our fancy the most will get the tickets.
WRITE AN ODE TO YOUR FAVORITE PLASTIC FASHION ITEM IN THE COMMENTS SECTION. THE WINNERS GET TO SIT WITH US AT THE GEN ART SHOW DURING NY FASHION WEEK.
Darlings, don't enter if you can't be in New York on February 10th (or can give the tickets to someone who can). The Gen Art show is a hot ticket and you'll be sure to see some fabulous fashion (along with some PR alumnae). So get to it! And leave us a way to contact you if you win.
Here's the press release:
UP-AND-COMING DESIGNER DUO “SEWS UP” COMPETITION CELEBRATING THE INNOVATIVE USE OF PLASTICS IN FASHION
Get cracking, ladies! We'll close the comments section in a week. Post as many entries as you want, but make it one entry per comment.
