Tessuti Awards – the Melbourne affair

On the night of August 13th, Tessuti Melbourne hosted our own little prequel to the main event. The aim was to give our Melbourne customers the opportunity to join in the fun that is the Tessuti Awards, with a chance to win a trip for two to Sydney. Given that notice was short and we’ve only been in Melbourne for three-and-a-bit months, we were thrilled to have eleven entrants take up the challenge and create their inspired versions of the Vintage LBD. Congratulations to our winner, Victoria, and second and third place holders, Bianca and Holly. Victoria and her model Stephanie will be flown up to Sydney for the big night, enjoying a two night stay at the fabulous Blacket hotel in the heart of the CBD.

In addition to a trip to Sydney, Victoria’s dress wins an automatic place in the final of our Tessuti Awards Vintage LBD category, giving her the rather enticing possibility of winning the grand prize of a trip to Paris. Check out the awards website here for more details on how to be a part of this great night. Places are very limited so be quick!

On behalf of everyone at Tessuti Fabrics, I’d like to say a special thanks to our judges on the night – Melissa Kramer from the fabulous Thread Den, and Ben Smith – designer of womenswear label Anon. Women..

And to all of those who submitted and modelled a garment, thanks so very much for taking the time and making the effort. We hope you enjoyed the evening as much as we did!
