A Passion for Fashion….The Whitehouse/Henry Roth LBD Runway Competition 2010

Last week Whitehouse Institute of Design Fashion Design students in both Melbourne and Sydney were offered an exclusive competition by leading Australian and New York designer, Henry Roth.

Whitehouse Institute of Design, Australia has partnered with Henry Roth to create this cutting edge competition showcasing the new wave of innovation for the Essential Little Black Dress, or LBD as it so often labelled.  The LBD is a must have in every women’s wardrobe, therefore the competition is asking Whitehouse students to design the perfect LBD for three sizes, 6, 12 and 20 that would retail for no more than $150.

With a total of 12 designers from both Melbourne and Sydney shortlisted, there will be a winner for each size category who will receive $600 each. The winning briefs will be implemented though the Henry Roth Hong Kong design studio from patterns into finished garments and winners will be announced at the end of year Graduation Exhibition and Parade in Sydney and Melbourne. The overall winner will also be given the opportunity to submit more sketches to Henry Roth for commercial production.
