stevie nicks shawl 1 Design A Shawl for Stevie Nicks!

Are you ready to participate in the what is unquestionably the greatest thing to ever to happen to shawls? Ok, then stand back before you hurt yourself from the exuberant spin that you might just inadvertently break into when you hear that the rumours are true and you have just under a month to submit a shawl design for Stevie Nicks.

In 1968, a very handsome boy brought me a poncho from South America. I knew it was magic and that some day I would copy it in chiffon or leather or beaded material. I realized that wearing a poncho or a long shawl gave me something to work with up on the stage. Big movements, big twirls, you need to be seen from far away. So I made that a big part of my stage clothes. It became totally intertwined in my fashion style.

If your shawl design is selected, you not only receive $2000, but a professional photographer will document her wearing it! So, if you’re someone who thought that making a shawl for Stevie could only happen in your dreams, then I can’t wait to see what you come up with for her!
