Wedding gown offered in contest
Brides-to-be can enter to win the Harlequin’s Wedding Gown of the Future during the companies Walk Down the Aisle Contest.
Last year, Harlequin Enterprises Ltd., held a contest for young designers to create the wedding gown of the future. Created by Sophie Sung, the winning gown is 100 percent silk dupioni and overlaid with Battenburg-inspired cut lace with seed pearls and iridescent sequins. The abbreviated farthingale at the hip is lushly adorned with silk roses, as is the dramatic headdress, complemented with feathers and a multitiered veil of gossamer illusion netting.
Harlequin will offer one bride the chance to win the gown and she and her groom will receive a six-night, seven-day honeymoon at the Hyatt Regency Maui Resort and Spa in Hawaii.
To enter, write to Harlequin and explain, in 250 words or less, why wearing the wedding gown would be special. Entries must be postmarked no later than Oct. 1 and received by Oct. 8 at: Harlequin Walk Down the Aisle Contest 1197, PO Box 9076, Buffalo, NY 14269-9076.
