We were lucky enough yesterday to attend the Chambord Shine Awards held at the beautiful tea rooms in The QVB, where An Ode to No one was crowned the winner of the award with his sizzling red dress creation. (pictured right)
As the winner, An Ode to No One will receive a mentorship with Seduce to have their dress produced and sold through Seduce stores nationally in September 2011. The launch will be celebrated with cocktail party at Seduce’s flagship Ivy store in Sydney. They will also have their own personally designed window displays throughout Seduce stores for a full month.
The event, hosted by Melissa Hoyer, was a demonstration of all that is great about emerging Australian design talent.
Guests were treated to a degastation lunch with Chambord cocktails to match, including a mulled wine and Chambord concoction we are eager to get the recipe for. In between meals desigenrs from An Ode to No One, Saint Augustine Academy, Elliot Ward-Fear, Tali Roth and Tato and Memi showed us 2 designs, each hoping that their design would be picked by the crowd that included a mix of fashion heavyweights and journalists.
A huge favourite of ours at BWA, An Ode To No One was the much deserved winner of the award and we look forward to seeing his designs in Seduce stores come September.
