Win a Trip for Two in The Dali’s Fashion Design Challenge
with surreal style inspired by Dali & Schiaparelli
We are celebrating our special exhibition Dali & Schiaparelli by encouraging everyone to examine the nexus of art and fashion, and how style – one’s choices as to how to wear the world and be seen by it – is a part of our everyday lives.
Complementary to Fashion Design at The Dali, an onsite educational program for Florida high school students, the Museum presents The Dali’s Fashion Design Challenge, an online contest opportunity for aspiring and established designers to create a new piece of fashion inspired by Dali’s artwork.
The winning designer will win an expense-paid trip to St. Petersburg, Florida, courtesy of Visit St. Pete/Clearwater, to enjoy the Dali & Schiaparelli exhibition and to explore the Tampa Bay area. The winning design will be displayed alongside designs from Fashion Design at The Dali in a special exhibition in the Museum’s Raymond James Community Room from December 10, 2017 through January 1, 2018.
You may enter the Fashion Design Challenge from September 28-November 16, 2017 by simply:
1. Choosing one or more Dali works as inspiration
2. Sketching or creating an original design
3. Uploading your original design and description here:
