LUX-Contest: Design with Creative Genius, Donald J. Pliner and Make a Difference
With all the recent talk lately of fashionably giving back, we thought you’d love to hear what one of our FAV shoe designers is up too!
‘Design with Donald: Create a shoe to support peace’ project, is an opportunity for you to tap into your creative genius and design with one of the best, Donald J. Pliner.
Pliner, a visionary designer with an altruistic streak, aims to make a difference through the use of creative fashion! Known for his innovative styles and eye for LUX footwear, this new campaign could have you channeling talent you never knew existed!
The design contest aims to support Pliner’s own foundation, Peace for Children Foundation.
“There are millions of kids all over the world and right here in America, that are in need of assistance and hopefully we will, through this foundation, make a difference in lives that will make a difference in the world.” —Peace for Children Organization official site
Participants will be asked to submit a design based on the ‘peace’ theme. The grand prizewinner will be gifted $2,000 and their design will be showcased in the Donald J. Pliner Fall 2010 collection. Not to mention, the first runner up will be awarded $1,000, second place will receive $500 and third place will take home $250.
If you feel inspired to submit your design, entry forms are available at any of the Donald J. Pliner Boutiques, online at www.donaldpliner.com, or in local design schools. Entries will be accepted starting today and through November 15 of this year.
