A cream silk gown with black beading and accents won the hearts of Boston Symphony Orchestra patrons at the organization's Project Tchaikovsky competition last night - making Junior Fallon Coster the winner of the Patron's Choice.

Ten students from area colleges and schools participated in the contest, which asked fasion design students to create gowns that showed how they were inspired by the music of Tchaikovsky.

Coster and senior Melissa Higgins were chosen by the BSO to participate in its second annual fashion contest, Project Tchiakovsky, which was held in conjunction with two concerts on April 13 and 15.

Coster said her design, which recevied the most votes from patrons at the two concerts and by text, was inspired by Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture.

In addition to the two student designers at the contest, Lasell was also represented on the judge's panel.

Lasell Alumna and fashion designer Nara Paz '09 served as a judge for the contest alongside BSO violinist Wendy Putnam, fashion designer Michael DePaulo, and Mary Nobile King, boutique director of Chanel and recently named one the Boston Globe's "25 Most Stylish People." Jared Bowen, arts reporter for WGBH's Greater Boston, was the emcee for the April 15 post-concert event.
