Now Hear This!
The 'Design A Winning Bow Tie Silk' Competition Is Now Declared Open. Entries close on the 31st December 2013.
What Is This Competition About?
Have you ever dreamed of being involved in the construction of a cloth or garment? We are looking to find dynamic and creative minds willing to apply themselves to the art of designing a silk specifically for a bow tie. The design will be woven on jacquard looms in Italy. The art of designing for jacquard loom silk is that the design must repeat within a small space for a bow tie, it must me three or less colours, it must be unique, eye catching and above all, it must be personal.
All submissions will be in the form of a PDF emailed to bow at le noeud papillon dot com and subsequently they will be loaded as jpeg on the site. We would like each submission to be explained to us. Things such as:
* Who are you, where do you come from and what made you want to join the competition?
* What shape of bow tie best suits this silk?
* What influences played into the design?
* What sort of designs do you enjoy from other companies?
* Was there a period that inspired your design or some reference to popular culture, literature, art?
* What would you like us to call the bow?
The winner will receive $200.00 in cash wired to their nominated account anywhere in the world. Apart from this, the winner will also receive 3 bow ties ($465.00 RRP) from the limited edition silk we create from their design.
*Please note that the winner will forfeit the property rights to the design as part of the competition. Le Noeud Papillon reserves the right to use the images of each of the submissions and the winning submission within all their marketing channels to help promote the competition.
