When I was invited to attend the "Get Chic With Chagoury" event, I had no idea that meant I would be creating a dress for a design contest. I stopped by Gilbert Chagoury's boutique on Melrose Ave. to meet the designer and preview his bridal, couture and newly launched ready-to-wear collection and was in for a rare treat. Not only did I get to view the collection full of chic lace and tulle gowns, but I had a glass of champagne, some hors d'oeuvres and a DIY design experience. Stylists, editors and bloggers, toured Chagoury's atelier and created dress designs using Chagoury's croquis sketch. With little more than a piece of fabric, a few rhinestones, scissors and glue, I created the gown pictured above. The winner of the 'Chagoury Capsule Collection Challenge' will actually get to design a collection. For more details on the Instagram contest be sure to follow @ChagouryCouture and @PivotalPR. Wish me luck!!
Here are some pics of the event.
