Heering Challenge 2009: Greek winners

Announcement from Karoulias’ website:

It is official – The cocktail and the dress that will represent Greece in the Grand Final of the Accessorize 2009 Heering Cherry Liqueur International Competition have been chosen. The winners of the Greek preliminary round are Stefanos Paraskevoudis, a professional mixologist from Thessaloniki –with his inspired “Vintage Fatale” cocktail– and the talented Loucas Alifragis, student at AKMI Fashion School –with his gorgeous, “dramatic” dress made of dark red, silk taffetas.

The Accessorize 2009 International Competition organized by Heering Cherry Liqueur –the original cherry liqueur– is held in 15 countries and aims at elevating the most talented mixologists and young fashion designers of the world. The mixologists are to create a Heering cocktail inspired by a unique haute couture dress while designers are to design a cocktail dress inspired by a Heering cocktail. In Greece, the preliminary round for the fashion competition was presided by Mr Makis Tselios, the famous Greek fashion designer, while the mixologists competition was held under the auspices of the Greek Barmen Association.

The Greek finalists, along with the winners from the 14 other countries, will travel to Singapore, on June 4th, 2009, to participate at the Grand Final. The event will take place in the legendary Raffles Hotel, the hotel where, in 1915, the famous Singapore Sling, Heering’s signature cocktail, was born. A unique experience and a great opportunity for international acknowledgment await the winners of the international competition: the winner mixologist will have the opportunity to publish his/her own cocktail book with Heering Cherry Liqueur, by the end of 2009, while the winner fashion designer, will present his/her own fashion show in the prestigious International Fashion Week in Copenhagen (spring/summer 2010).
