The Wait is Almost Over...The Upon A Star Contest is Soon Coming Your Way!

The 'Upon A Star' contest is Jorge Manuel's way of giving back. It is a contest that allows a fashion forward bride the opportunity to embrace her couture chic side and win a dress that makes her feel red carpet ready!

"I am so excited for this year's contest! We are working on so many surprises for this and we can't wait to see it come to fruition," says Jorge Manuel.

The Second annual JORGE MANUEL 'UPON A STAR' Win a Couture Wedding Contest is soon to commence! And this season the prizes get bigger and better! 

Without further ado, we proudly introduce this year's sponsor, HITCHED Bridal Salon from Washington D.C. The creative and amazing team that make up this wonderful bridal store composed of amazing stylists and wonderful owners, Carin Levine and Julia Kepniss, will make one very lucky bride's dream come true of winning and wearing a couture wedding gown designed by Jorge Manuel exclusively for this contest.

Judging will be done a bit differently this year as the public will be able to vote on the (6) finalists this season and account for 50% of the total points for the lucky brides in the running. The other 50% of points will be awarded by the Judges composed of a team of 3 judges from Jorge Manuel and a team of 3 Judges from our sponsor Hitched Bridal Salon. How exciting that you, the public, will be able to vote for your favorite Bridal contestant!

The winner will not only receive the one-of-a-kind couture gown designed just for this contest by the designer, but also her veil. What is different this year is that the lucky bride receives a custom gown made just for her!

The lucky contestant will be able to experience the true couture experience, a journey through the design path of a concept, a muslin and the end product... her custom made dress!

We will issue more details of this process in the next weeks to come in future blog posts. The Contest will officially launch on February 17, 2012 and all details about the contest as well as the applications will also be available for submission then.

What can we tell you about the dress other than the designer Jorge Manuel, with a joint effort of this year's sponsor, Hitched, worked side-by-side in designing the gown for the contest, choosing among beautiful fabrics and picking the perfect color for this truly magical and special dress. So after weeks and weeks of deliberation and preparation here at Jorge Manuel, we are truly honored to present to you this year's sketch of the 2nd annual 'Upon A Star' win a couture wedding contest.

Check back with us in the next weeks as contest information and details will become available. In the meantime we hope this sketch will give you a glimpse as to what's in store for this year 'Upon A Star' lucky winner!  A true design lover's treat!
