It's the holiday season. In other words, you're stuffed from one too many feasts, it's unreasonably cold outside, and you've been huddled with your entire family for what feels like too long. We totally get it. But, there is perhaps no better time to take on a DIY project — especially when it's super rewarding. And, when it results in a shiny, new J.W. Anderson dress.
For SHOWstudio's 10th annual Design Download collaboration, the fashion-film company has partnered with the Irish-born innovator to give DIY-ers the opportunity to create an exclusive J.W. Anderson design. The details? On December 25, you'll be able to download two exclusive patterns from the label's fall '13 collection — specifically, the asymmetrical leather top and skirt featured in the brand's first-ever campaign. When working with the innovative silhouette, you've got to re-imagine the pieces and make them your own.
Once your outfit's complete, you can submit your creation to SHOWstudio via Twitter with the hashtag #DesignDownload or through email to design.download@showstudio.com until the contest closes on March 31. Not only will you have the chance to appear on the site's online gallery, but get this: The winning garment will be the star of a Nick Knight fashion movie. Now, that's probably the greatest gift you could receive this year. So, stock up on those gingerbread cookies and gather your energy for December 25. Then, get to work. You've got this.
