LVHRD Announces Dueling Designers, Live Mannequins, and Style Gurus
Creative foundation-cum-social club releases names of participants in Fashion Duel event

November 16, 2005, NEW YORK -- The LVHRD Foundation is proud to announce the participating designers and judges for its 2nd Annual Master-Disaster Fashion Duel, to take place on November 21. The Fashion Duel will showcase the talents of contending fashion designers Rebecca Turbow and Corey Pak, as they wage couture war and create instant apparel on models in front of the the LVHRD audience. Both designers will be given one hour to design their unique pieces in accordance with the night’s theme using only the materials provided. The winner will be determined by judges from Kenneth Cole, Refinery29, and a collective vote from the audience.

Rebecca Turbow has made a name for herself with her Safe Clothes -- a whimsical concept that quickly took form as a buzz-worthy line of clothing and accessories. Safe Clothes grew out of Turbow’s idea to create durable and elegant handcrafted clothing that made its wearers feel emotionally and physically secure. Her forward-thinking, mod-influenced designs have already caught the attention of the New York Times, the Village Voice, Fashion Week Daily, Jane, The Fader and Venus.

Corey Pak is a Senior Designer for Women’s Accessories at American Eagle Outfitters. She has been working in the fashion industry for well over a decade, having held positions with major labels including Seven for All Mankind, Calvin Klein, Polo Jeans Company, Pepe Jeans London, and Gap. Pak is also known for founding and designing P.A.K., which debuted as part of Moet & Chandon’s Young Designers Debut for Fashion Week 1999. She is currently working on her line, Middleburgh, due to debut in Fall 2006.

Robert E. Lee lends his practiced eye to the LVHRD judging panel as Vice President and Creative Director of Kenneth Cole. He is responsible for developing the advertising of the Kenneth Cole New York brand, the Reaction brand, as well as creative directing the spring and fall lines and shows in conjunction with Kenneth Cole himself.

Also joining as a judge is Piera Gelardi, Art/Style Director of the distinctive and discriminating shoppers’ guide Refinery29.com. She launched her magazine career at CITY magazine, eventually holding the position of Photography Director, and earning the magazine a major nod from the American Society of Magazine Editors when CITY scored the Best Photography award in 2004. In addition to her role at Refinery29, Gelardi is the founder of the upcoming indie art publication, Team Rad.

Music for the Fashion Duel will be provided by DJs from No Data.
