We are excited to announce that Architectural Digest will again sponsor the award presentation and cocktail party on Saturday, May 5, 2012 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM at the new West Hollywood showroom in honor of the winner and runner up.

Christopher Guy-BritWeek Design Award:

The second annual Christopher Guy BritWeek Design Award centers on students designing a furniture piece or decorative accessory following key Christopher Guy design elements, but based on the remarkable creations of Philip Treacy, the celebrated haute couture hat designer. The design challenge is to conceptualize a full lifestyle setting incorporating all the elements of a given room and to design one or more of the pieces in the room, inspired by Philip Treacy’s famous hat designs.

Competition Prizes:

The winner will receive a one month internship, including airfare and accommodation, at the Christopher Guy corporate headquarters in Singapore. During this month, the winner will have a chance to work one-on-one with head designer Christopher Guy and others as they develop and launch their new collections.

Full employment at the end of the internship will be considered in either Singapore or in the US corporate offices and showrooms. The winner of last year’s competition, Annie Harrison, is now a full time employee of the Christopher Guy team.

The winner will also be flown to London to visit the Christopher Guy UK operations and receive a four-day trip to visit the Christopher Guy exhibit during the Maison et Objet exhibition in Paris, one of the world’s most prestigious furnishing exhibitions.

The runner-up will receive an all-expense paid trip to London to visit the Christopher Guy UK operations, the Christopher Guy showroom at Harrods. The runner-up will also receive a four-day trip to visit the Christopher Guy exhibit during the Maison et Objet exhibition in Paris.
