I was thrilled when I saw this contest, and really wanted to enter a design of my Fleur!! (https://artofthehorse.wordpress.com/2014/07/05/fleur/) in it! But I was really disappointed when I saw that you have to be 18 years or older. So I contacted Michelle Cavanaugh Donn, the owner and founder of L. Lavone, and asked her if she was planing another contest that I would be eligible to enter in . She wrote back and said that it would be a great idea and that she would look into it for next summer! I hope there is a possibility for this!
So, for all you equine artists over 18 that would like to enter for this contest, All entries must be received by October 1st, 2014! Entries should be an Equestrian themed design for a high end fashionable scarf 90cm x 90cm. The design must be square and well suited to being used as a scarf.

About L. Lavone~
Founded by Michelle Cavanaugh Donn, L. Lavone is a venture created to bring exquisite Equestrian themed items to market. Michelle settled on silk scarves in the tradition of Hermes and Gucci as her first product after investigating a number of other ideas. Michelle has always loved her own collection of vintage scarves even having a number of them framed for display in her home in Wellington, Florida. Scarves can transform a bland outfit to chic in moments, and as a keepsake or gift few items are treasured like a beautiful scarf. Michelle thought: “why shouldn’t equestrians have our own company creating items for us showcasing the artists that are part of our close knit community?” Bringing together the talents of Equestrian artists with the skilled craftsman of the silk producing area of Como, Italy has become Michelle’s first mission for L. Lavone. The effort has been well worth it and Michelle is thrilled that results of all her work will come to fruition during the holiday season of 2014 when her first L. Lavone scarves will be for sale in stores nationwide.
