Robert Richard Won 2nd Runner Up in "The Little Black Dress Contest"

Robert Richard (a UNT junior), on Wednesday May 12, 2010, won 2nd Runner Up and a scholarship for $500 in the Neal Hamil Modeling Agency�s �The Little Black Dress Contest� . The contest, in sartorial spirit, challenged fashion design students from Texas to design their own take on �The Little Black Dress�. The dresses were collected on Tuesday March 10, at FGI Houston Career Day and were presented in a fashion show to a panel of celebrity judges such as Chloe Dao from Project Runway: Season II as well as others from Papercity Magazine and Tootsie�s Boutique. The top ten finalists were videoed during the event and footage played at a fundraising reception at the House of Blues in Downtown Houston. The video can be viewed at: http://littleblackdressproject.com/index.html

The Little Black Dress is considered one of the fashion icons of our time, inspiring designers from the moment it was introduced by Chanel in 1926, through Givenchy�s 1961 creation for Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany�s, to the myriad current fashion designers the world over.
Congratulations, Robbie!!
