TORONTO, Nov. 7, 2011 /CNW/ - One of the city's top second-hand stores
is challenging bargain-conscious fashionistas to channel their inner
Audrey Hepburn and create fabulous outfits to win amazing prizes.
Double Take, located at 310 Gerrard St. East, is hosting its 2nd annual
Designer Dare contest on Nov. 24, 2011. The contest, built around the
theme of The Cocktail Hour, asks participants to refashion items
purchased at Double Take into a new outfit that celebrity judges deem
chic and sophisticated enough to be considered cocktail wear.
For a $10 entry fee, participants get a $25 gift certificate to Double
Take to buy items for their outfit.
Outfits can be assembled at any time up until judging, which takes place
between 4-6 p.m. on November 24th. Ensembles will be assessed on
durability, creativity and fashion appeal. The top 10 outfits will be
presented on the runway later that evening.
Entrance forms are available up until Nov. 23rd at Double Take. Prizes
include a phenomenal day with a top Toronto designer, a vintage fur
coat and Double Take gift certificates.
Double Take thrift store is one of Toronto's premiere gently used
clothing outlet stores. Part of Toronto charity Yonge Street Mission,
Double Take employs community residents, provides job skills and
training, and offer quality, affordable clothing.
