Inspired by the crocheted dress-wearing doll image used in the creative campaign of the Canadian Opera Company’s production of Cinderella, the opera company launches the Cinderella Outfit Challenge.
The gauntlet has been thrown to designers, fashionistas and those handy
with a needle and thread to create a doll’s hand-crafted costume
inspired by this cherished fairytale.
Participants who submit a photo of their homemade doll costume, inspired by Cinderella,
will have a chance to win a prize package including four tickets (plus
lounge pass and drink tickets) to the opening night of the Canadian
Opera Company's production of Cinderella (La Cenerentola), an overnight stay at the Hilton Hotel in downtown Toronto, a gift basket from Cheese Boutique valued at $200, and a chance to meet the members of the cast after the performance.
The general public will vote on the entries until April 6, 2011, and
the five entries with the most votes will become contest finalists. A
panel of celebrity judges, including Jeanne Beker (Host of CTV’s FashionTelevision), Steven Sabados and Chris Hyndman (hosts of Steven & Chris on CBC TV), David McCaffrey (creative director and designer of McCaffrey Haute Couture) and COC General Director Alexander Neef, will select the grand-prize winner from the top five finalists on April 15.
