My Tessuti Awards Dress

Vintage Inspired Cocktail Couture Dress

In 2013 I entered a dressmaking competition in Sydney: The Tessuti Awards held by the Tessuti Fabrics store.

One of the themes given to the competition was titled 'Red Hot" and was based on a stunning red polyester taffeta the store had imported from France. First prize was a round the world ticket for two! I was inspired to enter and win a chance to fly to Paris and take a class at Lesage!

Unfortunately I didn't win first prize, BUT my dress did make it into the finals and came third place! My prize was a $500 store voucher which I used to buy some beautiful silk and wool. Here are photos of my dress. It's vintage inspired of course and still available for purchase from my online boutique!
