Win a Trip for Two in The Dalí’s Fashion Design Challenge
with surreal style inspired by Dalí & Schiaparelli
We are celebrating our special exhibition Dalí & 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 Dalí, an onsite educational program for Florida high school students, the Museum presents The Dalí’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 Dalí & Schiaparelli exhibition and to explore the Tampa Bay area. (Local winner will receive a staycation package.) The winning design will be displayed alongside designs from Fashion Design at The Dalí 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 Dalí works as inspiration
2. Sketching or creating an original design
3. Uploading your original design and description here:
