One In A Million Designer Banner - Congrats Finalists

The excitement is building as we approach the last lap of the One In A Million Designer Challenge. We showcased the second entry of each designer at the SEMI-FINALS show on October 8th. Check out the photos taken at the show.

On October 13th we celebrated the ten designers who made it through to the final round with a PRE-FINALS PARTY at the Runway Cafe. The ten finalists selected one design out of their two entries to compete in the Finals show. See the Finalists’ designs here.

The FINALS SHOW will take place on October 15th at Patch Thibaud Auditorium where the WINNER will be announced. That winner will receive L$750,000 cash and L$250,000 worth of publicity in some of SL’s top magazines, as well as an interview with Kay Fairey on her SLTV program “The Runway” on October 26th.

We hope to see all of you at these events as the finalists cross the finish line on this last lap in what has become a fun, intoxicating journey of fashion, innovation and friendly competition at the Runway Cafe.

FINALS SHOW: Saturday, October 15 – 2PM SLT
LOCATION: Patch Thibaud Auditorium

CONGRATULATIONS TO THE 10 FINALISTS!!!

October 7, 2011 Leave a comment

One In A Million Designer Challenge

The long wait is finally over. After months of planning, creating and designing, we have completed the second round of the One in a Million Designer Challenge. The judges’ scores have been tallied, and we are ready to publish the top ten finalists who will go on to compete for the one million Lindens, and the title of One in a Million Designer.

On behalf of all of us at Runway Cafe, I want to personally thank each and every designer who stepped up to the challenge. It is always difficult to have to eliminate anyone in something like this, knowing that they have all worked so hard with so much anticipation to come out at the top. I am truly proud of everyone who submitted entries to this event, and hope that at the very least it inspired you to think outside the box and stimulate your creative thinking. Regardless of whether your designs made it this far or not, you are all winners to us because you took a chance and put yourselves on the line. That was the entire purpose of this challenge, and you did yourselves proud.

So without further ado, we present the finalists who will appear in the October 15th show at Patch Thibaud Auditorium. The names are listed in alphabetical order and have no relation to overall scoring positions to prevent bias.

1. Ambergris Baphomet
2. AnaLee Balut
3. Carrie Snowpaw
4. Heliione Roi
5. Jasilyn Amiot
6. Mirja Mills
7. Pidria Bonetto
8. Rogue Falconer
9. Tatanka Kaligawa
10. Ziamela Loon

We thank all of our sponsors of this event, including Best of SL, Maniera, BeStyle, ICON, TOO SEXY, Inworld Inc and DMI. On behalf of myself, Jena Adder, Nino Heartsdale, and all our models, we congratulate you and look forward to seeing you on stage on the 15th!!!

Alix Abruzzo, CEO

Congratulations to the following designers selected to move on to the NEXT ROUND in the One In A Million Designer Challenge.

(SEE THE ENTRIES HERE)

As you recall from the OFFICIAL CONTEST RULES, you are now required to submit your COMPLETE OUTFIT by September 10th.

Please submit your outfit to Jena Adder, so that we may give it to the models to fit and style. You will be provided with the name of the model allocated to you so that you can contact him/her and tell them how you would like your outfit to be styled. Every single item that is part of your outfit needs to be transferable.

The initial shows will be held on the Runway Cafe sim on September 17th and 24th at 2pm SLT where your outfit will be showcased at one of the shows.

In addition there will be a launch party on Wednesday 14th September at 3pm SLT. 

We will shortly be sending you the invitation for the party and the shows. We would encourage you attend and bring along all your family and friends.

We would also like to request that you post the invitations for the shows to all your groups and contacts and to display the posters for the competition in your shops.

_____________________________________________________

THE NEXT ROUND – SEMI-FINALS

You should also now proceed with the design of your SECOND outfit which needs to be submitted by October 3rd for the semi-finals round show which will be held on October 8th at 2pm SLT.

Remember it’s just the outfit you need to create. The hair, shoes, accessories, etc., can be purchased from where ever you please in SL. Once again you need to present the complete look.

For this stage of the contest, please submit one photograph of your outfit along with a note card describing your creation as well as the styling details. The photo and note card can be submitted at the same time as the outfit on the 3rd of October. Once again please submit your entries to Jena Adder.

At the semi-finals round the 10 finalists for the contest will be selected to move on to the finals round. The finalists will then participate in the final show due to be held on 15th October where the winner of the contest will be announced.

More details on that will follow closer to the event. In the meantime you will be invited to join the “One in a Million Contest” group, which will allow us to keep you informed of all the news as and when it happens.
