Designer Style Challenge - Results

On Saturday evening at the Gala event of the 25th Fall Creativ Festival the winners and runner ups were announced in the eigth catergories.

My two entries were semi-finalists in two catergories (beadwork and paperarts). They were on display for attendees to see and vote on their favourites.

Here are pictures I took with my iPhone on Friday when the show opened.

At the Gala presentation the finalists' creations were displayed on the runway with models wearing or carrying them. My Iris Twist Vase was a finalist in the Beadwork catergory. Here is my vase coming down the runway.

The three Beadwork finalists, Chippy Ezer, Dorothy Kale and myself, waiting for the announcement of the winner.

Congratulations to Chippy Ezer, the winner in the beadwork catergory, for her design Dream of Africa Necklace. She was awarded a beautiful Swarovski trophy and $1000.
