The day Grows Closer When The UPON A STAR Contest Wedding Gown is Revealed

We are just a little over a week away before Jorge Manuel's 'UPON A STAR Win A Couture Wedding Gown contest' dress is revealed at Hitched Salon in Washington D.C. on February 17. The journey to making the dress has been an exciting one. The project began months ago when the designer sketched various ideas for this special one-of-a-kind gown. The sketches were then submitted to this year's sponsor and incredibly talented group of ladies at Hitched Salon. After several meetings over the phone, sketch design editing, fabric selecting and color choices, the "Eternal Flame" dress came to be.

Owners, Julia Kepniss and Carine Levine, have a very fond childhood memory of the song "Eternal Flame,"and through song they would become best of friends and venture out into the bridal industry as admirable store owners. For this reason, Jorge Manuel found most fitting to name this year's UPON A STAR wedding gown "Eternal Flame."

"I thought it best appropriate to name the contest UPON A STAR because it is a contest of making dreams come true. And that very saying "that when you wish upon a star," anything is possible. The star theme has always been a big thing with me when naming the dresses for this competition. But this particular dress name fit so perfectly into this year's contest for two reasons. The first reason is the story behind the store owners Julia and Carin and their history with the song title "Eternal Flame." I wanted the gown to represent their bride's tastes and style, while representing who they are as a wonderful store. The second reason is that what is a star? just that....an eternal flame...thus the perfect name for this gorgeous dress. It has been fun working hands on in this project. The lucky winner will shine as bright as any star in this gown!" recalls Jorge Manuel.

So there you have it, while brides gear up to get ready for the contest, both Jorge Manuel and this year's sponsor, Hitched Salon, prepare to embark on a wonderful journey of making dreams come true. Stay tuned here and on the designer's website for full contest rules and details. This year's UPON A STAR contest promises to be a dream maker's dream.
