Do you suspect that you’re amazing at putting outfits together? Do all of your friends bother you about what shoes to wear with what trousers for which occasion? Do you, out of the goodness of your heart, answer them patiently and without judgment because YOUR GIFT FOR DRESSING is one that should be shared with all of humankind? Awesome.
And we’ll tell you why. Cotton, yes, as in ‘The Fabric of Our Lives,’ (ha ha you so have the jingle trapped in your head now don’t you? You’re WELCOME) is scouring our beautiful, talented nation for Style Icons. The Cotton Style Search will pluck 24 people (men and women) to stay in sunny South Beach for three nights and four days, aaaaaaaaaaaaaand those folks will get to flaunt their personal (aforementioned MAGICAL) style in their 24-hour Runway Show that begins on Saturday, November 19th at noon until the following day at noon (yes, we’re FANTASTIC at math, thank you).
The search kicks off on October 14th, 2011 (better known as TODAY) and ends October 26th, 2011 at noon. To be considered, you must be at least 18 years old and you have to submit a photo of yourself to the Cotton site clad in a head-to-toe cotton ensemble that best shows off your uncanny knack for assemblage while expressing how versatile cotton is.
See, if you truly are the wonderful closet master that you suspect you are, this should be a cakewalk. Mix up silhouettes, layers, hues, prints and weaves and just GO TO TOWN. Or else stunt in sleek, muted, elegant, color blocks. Just do you and show us what that’s all about. Now go shop your closets with a vengeance!
