CALLING ON WANNABE ART DIRECTORS: Neiman Marcus has launched a contest to allow followers to create his or her own Art of Fashion Collection on Pinterest. Followers can access past and present Art of Fashion images and can also use their own creative selections.
The contest runs from Wednesday through March 27. The follower that curates the best collection, chosen by a panel of Neiman Marcus judges, will go home with a $1,000 Neiman Marcus gift card. Participants must share their e-mail address and board URL on the neimanmarcus.com submission page before entering. They also must pin the contest image and at least six other Art of Fashion images to qualify.
Begun nearly 20 years ago, The Art of Fashion campaign was created to feature cutting-edge fashion and provocative photography. Walter Chin photographed the spring 2013 Art of Fashion campaign. Other noted photographers who have shot the campaign have been Richard Avedon, Arthur Elgort, Helmut Newton, Annie Leibovitz, Lillian Bassman and Paolo Roversi.
