chance to score SORELs on the streets of Whistler, compete in a Polyvore Style Challenge on Facebook and get real-time festival updates from SOREL's style ambassadors The Sparks Twins.
"This is the first time SOREL has partnered with the Whistler Film
Festival," said Jordan Dilworth, Brand Marketing Manager for SOREL. "We
think the festival provides the perfect environment for SOREL and we're
excited to be part of such an amazing event."
The Sparks Twins
SOREL's Whistler style ambassadors and fashion influencers, the Sparks
Twins, are up-and-comers in the industry. The petite sisters and
bloggers are gathering a massive following, having been featured in
"Style Me" segments on MuchMusic's New Music Live, covering Toronto Fashion Week on FT: Fashion Television and as stylists for BOLD magazine. Brittany Sparks, of the Sparks Twins says, "Maleah and I are
huge fans of SOREL, and we are absolutely thrilled to work with the
brand to bring consumers and fans coverage of the festival fashion."
Polyvore Style Challenge
Throughout the film festival, the Sparks Twins will hit the streets to
gift SOREL boots to Whistler attendees with the top winter styles. For
SOREL fans not able to attend the festival, the boot brand challenges
consumers to create looks from a Polyvore closet curated in
collaboration with the Sparks Twins. The top 14 consumer-created looks
will win a pair of SOREL boots.
