Stevie Nicks is looking for a new shawl to be designed by one of her fans.
From talenthouse.com, where Nicks has made the request:
Designers can submit a ready-made shawl design or a sketch. Both should include a written description about why they think this shawl would be appealing to Stevie Nicks. The selected artist will receive $2,000 of which they will be required to produce their final piece.
A professional photograph of Stevie Nicks wearing the shawl will be taken for the selected artist to include in their portfolio. The photograph and winner will receive an official feature on stevienicksofficial.com and across her social channels, potentially being seen by millions globally.
Also from talenthouse:
“In 1968, a very handsome boy brought me a poncho from South America. I knew it was magic and that some day I would copy it in chiffon or leather or beaded material. I realized that wearing a poncho or a long shawl gave me something to work with up on the stage. Big movements, big twirls, you need to be seen from far away. So I made that a big part of my stage clothes. It became totally intertwined in my fashion style.”

Nicks’ style of shawl tends to lean towards the light and airy, usually being made from embroidered silk, chiffon or lace. It would certainly be a great and rewarding challenge for experienced knitters to design a shawl that would meet Nicks’ witchy-bohemian specifications.
