Last Day to Submit for You Can’t Fake FashionTotes Graphic Contest

Earlier in March, we celebrated a bag auction with 90 top designers for You Can’t Fake Fashion. We also launched a contest asking readers to submit their best virtual bag by altering a raw tote digitally. Tomorrow, Friday, April 5th at 12 p.m. is the last moment to submit your graphic design. Just download the tote image and use your imagination. Enter the contest here. The winner gets $500 worth of eBay goodies. Who couldn’t use a shopping spree on eBay?

The Winner of Our You Can’t Fake Fashion Contest Is…

Hark, The Inside Source has found a winner for the graphic contest celebrating eBay and CFDA's You Can’t Fake Fashion campaign! After judging tons of entries for creativity and originality, we award Marcy Castelgrande a $500 eBay gift card for her design “True Beauty” (see her artist statement below). We’d like to thank all our other entries who submitted amazing works. 

Title of Submission: True Beauty

Artist Name: Marcy Castelgrande

What is the inspiration behind your submission? 

A pure design is an evolution of creativity, inspired by vintage accessories and large floral prints, modern shapes, seasonal colors, and the reflective print trend. This bag illustrates that a true design is not a copy or a counterfeit. It is the love affair of ideas and a growth of creativity, and if these designs become merely clones of one another, the true beauty dies.
