Vote for Your Favorite Little Black Dress Sketch!


What is it?  In celebration of the iconic ‘Little Black Dress’ Phoenix Fashion Week invited past emerging designers to submit their best LBD sketches.  Then we partnered with Little Black Dress Wines to support the launch at Neiman Marcus (Scottsdale) during Fashion’s Night Out on Sept. 12, 2012.  Guests were encouraged to preview the best (3) LBD sketches on iPads and select their favorite design, while meeting each designer in person.

Who are the designers?  (1) 2009 Emerging Designer Bri Bridge www.bribridge.com (2) 2010 Emerging Designer Alma Primero www.almaprimero.com and (3) 2010 Emerging Designer Shantidas Contu-Owen shantidas.contu@hotmail.com.

How do we choose the winner?  The LBD challenge evolved from the necessity to support past emerging designers and to inspire them to keep their fashion dream alive!  Each will build their LBD sketches into actual dresses to be displayed at Phoenix Fashion Week in our Style Villa.  Then it will be up to YOU to vote for your favorite sketch or dress leading up to PHXFW.  The winner will be announced Thursday Oct. 4th at 7:00pm at the ‘Little Black Dress Challenge’ display, inside the Style Villa.

  1. For Santidas: Simple but Elegant

    Alma dress handsdown! It’s fashion forward, edgy but classy. The Bri dress is way outdated. That style has come and went! Shantidas is just ok.

  2. Shanti for me, While Bri’s is ok, have seen it before minus the tail. Don’t like tails. I would wear Shanti’s dress but not the others.

  3. Itks Bri for me…

  4. Shantidas for me. I considered Bri and then realized it looked like she was wearing shoulder pads. Sorry Bri fans

    I really like the amount of detail that Alma demonstrates on her sketch of the ideal little black dress. I absolutely love the three quarter length sleeves, as well as her unique use in fabrics. It took me a minute to fully visualize her WINNER idea. I 100% vote for Alma Primero.
