Stevie Nicks launches design a shawl contest
Fleetwood Mac's Stevie Nicks is fronting a competition with Talenthouse in which the winner gets to design a 'show-stopping' shawl for Nicks to wear.
The winner's garment will be worn by Nicks in a photoshoot which will be featured on her website and social media channels. The winner gets to keep the shawl afterwards.
Talenthouse made the following announcement on their website: "Designers can submit a ready-made shawl design or a sketch. Both should include a written description about why they think this shawl would be appealing to Stevie Nicks. The selected artist will receive $2,000 of which they will be required to produce their final piece."
Singer-songwriter Nicks added:
"In 1968, a very handsome boy brought me a poncho from South America. I knew it was magic and that someday I would copy it in chiffon or leather or beaded material.
"I realized that wearing a poncho or a long shawl gave me something to work with up on the stage. Big movements, big twirls, you need to be seen from far away. So I made that a big part of my stage clothes. It became totally intertwined in my fashion style."
The competition runs until September 29th, which is the release date of the limited vinyl edition of Nick's latest solo album, '24 Karat Gold - Songs From The Vault'. The regular edition of the album will be out on October 7.
The winner will be announced on October 14th.
