Twenty for the Sec­ond An­nual Courts Fash­ion­ista Com­pe­ti­tion

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

Lo­cal and re­gional fur­ni­ture and elec­tri­cal gi­ant, Courts, has an­nounced that twenty de­sign­ers have been se­lected to par­tic­i­pate in the com­pany’s sec­ond “Courts Fash­ion­ista Com­pe­ti­tion”. The event will be held on Fri­day Au­gust 28th, 2015 at Courts Chaussee from 3pm; ev­ery­one is in­vited to be a part of this amaz­ing event.

On July 31st, 2015, the com­pany an­nounced that as part of its pri­mary pro­mo­tion for the month of Au­gust, lo­cal am­a­teur and pro­fes­sional de­sign­ers would be given an op­por­tu­nity to cre­ate de­signs that would de­pict a piece of fur­ni­ture fea­tured in the com­pany’s Fash­ion­able Fur­ni­ture brochure.

Be­ing in its sec­ond year, the call for de­sign­ers was well re­ceived and the com­pany ac­cepted well over forty en­tries, all with beau­ti­ful and in­tri­cate de­signs and equal chances of cap­tur­ing this year’s crown.

Due to the over­whelm­ing num­ber of en­tries re­ceived, the com­pany de­cided that an in­crease in the num­ber of fi­nal­ists was nec­es­sary so as to pro­mote the tal­ents of the de­sign­ers.

The fi­nal­ists are Noelina St. Ange, Es­ther Charles, Kim­berly Charlery, Ker­rian Eu­gene, Perry Mar­tial, Thelma Wil­liams, Kelly Im­bert, Jeremiah Mathurin, Dian Eu­dovic, Lau­rie Isaac, Kim­berly Charlery, Christa Gus­tave, Solange Al­fred, Mi­randa Gus­tave, Cheris Fitz, Joanne Ason, Krystal McVane, Jenel Knight, Shantell Jn Bap­tiste and Au­gustina Wil­fred.

This year, the win­ner of the Courts Fash­ion­ista Com­pe­ti­tion will walk away with $2,500 in cash amongst other prizes. The 1st run­ner-up will walk away with $1,000 and the 2nd run­ner-up will re­ceive $500. All par­tic­i­pants will be given to­kens of ap­pre­ci­a­tion for their par­tic­i­pa­tion.

Courts, un­der­stand­ing the eco­nomic hard­ships be­ing faced by a large num­ber of St. Lu­cians, thought it nec­es­sary to pro­vide the nec­es­sary fi­nan­cial as­sis­tance to all par­tic­i­pants for the pur­pose of get­ting es­sen­tial sup­plies needed to com­plete their de­signs. The par­tic­i­pants will be judged on cre­ativ­ity, pre­sen­ta­tion, orig­i­nal­ity, sim­i­lar­ity be­tween sketch pro­vided and ac­tual de­sign, crafts­man­ship, crowd re­sponse and big­gest posse.

This year’s com­pe­ti­tion prom­ises to be a big­ger and bet­ter show! With more de­sign­ers, more cre­ative de­signs and more money up for grabs.

The as­pir­ing Saint Lu­cian de­sign­ers set to par­tic­i­pate in the sec­ond an­nual Courts Fash­ion­ista com­pe­ti­tion.
