By Nicole Cifani, Special to LAistNearly two weeks ago when researching a piece about L.A. Fashion Week, I came across a contest on the website for emerging artist organization Project Ethos.

The winner of the contest, called the "Project Ethos Carlton Salon VIP Experience Giveaway", was to receive a haircut, color and style courtesy of Carlton Salon, a walk down the red carpet, 4 VIP tickets, and bottle service at Project Ethos’ LA Fashion week event. I never win anything and was totally surprised to learn a few days later that I was the winner (although due to a technicality - the real winner had to back out at the last minute). I'm an avid supporter of the arts and fashion in Los Angeles, and as a runner-up or not was excited to participate.

Project Ethos, created in 2005, is an LA-based organization that produces events to showcase emerging indie talent of the fashion, art, and musical variety. In many ways, they’ve been around longer and pick up where Gen Art left off.
