Be Discovered in Glams Design a Dress Contest!

Hi everyone! I hope you are having a great week and getting ready for the wonderful weekend ahead.

This week I have something exciting for you. Glam **has created the **Design a Dress Contest! Glam’s Design a Dress contest is an exciting opportunity for a break out design star to be recognized and given the opportunity to design the dress of their dreams. Through sketches posted online, viewers can vote on their favorite designer.

From January 7 to January 31, you can submit sketches of a dress you’d like to design. Once all entries are received, Glam’s editorial team will select 4 groups of 8 semifinalists that will be featured in a weekly slideshow with voting functionality. Readers will vote each week on their favorite dresses. The top two semifinalists each week move to the final round-for 8 total finalists. These 8 finalists will be given 3 weeks to actually make the dress they sketched. Our panel of judges will then convene to decide on one ultimate winner. Both **Glam **and **MSN **will collaborate to create a unique online fashion experience with access to exclusive behind-the-scenes content where viewers can remain informed on the progress of the contest. The MSN.com and Glam.com co-branded landing pages will not only keep audience members updated on voting but will also include judge profiles, dress trends and in-depth interviews with designers. Profiles and bios of the finalists will also be available on both sites throughout the contest.

The following Judges have been confirmed:** Paul Wilmot, Samir Arora, Adam Lippes, Monique Lhuillier, Vanessa Lefebvre, and Tina Knowles!**

The grand prize: An apprenticeship at Adam & Eve showrooms and a $500 Lord and Taylor Gift Certificate.
