LORETTA ANNOUNCES HONORARY DESIGN STAFF
By Audrey Smythe-Wei
Thursday, September 11, 2008 — Millsberry's resident fashion expert, Loretta Rivers, is soaring with creativity these days and with good reason.
Recently, she held a press conference and fielded questions about the results of her T-shirt design contest.
In sum: It was a major success. Not only were there more than 15,000 entries, but the 15 lucky designers will finally allow her to attain the coveted haute couture status.
"This is definitely the high point of my career. I can't thank everyone enough for all the hard work that went into the entries. The degree of creativity and innovation was astounding."
She added: "It certainly proves there are lots of artists in the making in town."
These talented designers were awarded the highest honor Loretta could bestow: the Golden T-shirt.
"I wanted to give something special to those with the most exceptional designs. And, what's better than a trophy you can wear"
"It's a solid gold T-shirt," Loretta said, holding up the golden garment. "Just make sure you don't toss it in with your other laundry!"
After the press conference, Loretta was swarmed by photographers, fans, and Millsberry fashion enthusiasts.
Smiling, Loretta thanked the crowd, and said she'd happily stick around to sign autographs and pictures.
As the admirers lined up, Loretta momentarily surprised the room by returning to the podium for one more announcement:
"Oh, I almost forgot the most important part."
"Starting today, the top 15 T-shirt designs will be available for purchase at Wearhouse. Each shirt has been signed by the artist who created it, so you"ll know exactly who to thank for such incredible work."
Today, it seems, beauty is in the eye of the designer.
