Looks like the Ensembles’ Wear My Design contest last year was such a big success, and the team is launching it once again this year!
The 5 Winning Dresses comprised the Ensembles’ Spring 2013 Collection. Wow, that’s big a achievement! How nice it is to say that – Hey, I have my creations in Ensembles. Check out the store nearest you! I wish I have that talent and skills in creating clothes designs.
For this year, 8 grand winners will be announced and their creations will be part of the Ensemble’s Spring 2014 Collection. Each winner will receive cash and gift certificates from Ensembles, plus Special Gift packs from wonderful partners – VMV Hypoallergenics and Piandre Salon. Each winner shall also be given one produced dress of his/her design (in his/her choice of color and size.) The winning pieces will be reproduced by Ensembles for the Wear My Design 2014 Spring Dresses Collection and the name of the grand winners will be featured on the Ensembles Wear My Design hangtag (how cool is that?!)
