Penshoppe X Status: Print Theory

I feel so blessed and lucky this year. Seems too early to assume but  think I have to admit that all my plans working out well. But this one thing it's not actually part of my plans. I still can't believe it is happening to me. And I can say this is the highlight of my 2013.

Last June Penshoppe and Status Magazine cooked up a contest. See my post HERE. Out of my interest and  frustration to be a designer, I joined the contest. I sent three design entries. I got paisley which is I really love to win, a sun burst inspired and a flower pattern inspired by Japanese. On July 12, the announcement happened. Out of six winners, one of my entries won. The Blanc Noir Japanese inspired pattern was picked as to be part of limited edition collection of Penshoppe. I was really shocked when I saw the Facebook announcement that time in the office which made me cry. This is a first for me to won in a contest. I'm not really into joining contest, not because I have no trust in my talent, but I just don't want the feeling of defeated. So, it is really something meant for me. The prizes from this contest was not my intention to join, but I just want to test how far my talent can go, and if designing is really my thing. I guess this is a good sign to continue to believe in my talent and pursue the dream that I really aiming for till now.

One of my entries. The Paisley.

The prizes of the contest are 5K worth of Penshoppe gift cards. A six page editorial feature in September Style issue of Status Magazine, a 2 VIP seats in SS14 Penshoppe show in October and winning design will be out in the market as limited collection to be sold in selected store nationwide.
