Bernardo Fashions is hosting a "Lucky Breaks" sweepstakes on their website at, where consumers can enter for a chance to win a Bernardo washable faux shearling coat and access user-friendly information on this fashion company.

Bernardo Fashions is best known as the developer of fashion's most extensive collection of machine-washable/machine-dryable suede, stretch suede, leather, faux shearling, faux-faux shearling and wool/cashmere.  Featured in the "Lucky Breaks" section of Lucky Magazine's November issue, the sweepstakes will give away 150 of Bernardo’s unique machine-washable/machine-dryable designs. Lucky is the award-winning magazine about shopping from Condé Nast.

The Bernardo sweepstakes and web site spotlight new fall styles from one of America's fastest-growing fashion brands. Over the past three years, Bernardo has generated more than $220 million in retail sales of its breakthrough machine-washable suede, leather, faux shearling and wool/cashmere designs, with at least another $100 million projected by the end of 2003. 

Bernardo's "Lucky Breaks" sweepstakes runs through November 30, 2003. From now until that date, consumers can fill out an on-line entry form through a "Lucky Breaks" link on Bernardo’s website at  After the end date of the sweepstakes on November 30, 150 prizes will be awarded by random drawing, with each  winner receiving a Bernardo machine-washable/machine-dryable faux shearling coat valued at $159 retail; total retail value of all prizes is approximately $24,000.

Established in 1989, Bernardo is a privately held company and one of America's fastest growing fashion companies. Since its launch of the first truly machine-washable/ machine-dryable suede apparel in late 2000, Bernardo has catapulted into the ranks of the ten largest U.S. resources for outerwear. Sportswear is also building momentum with collections bearing the Superfashion® banner, that are trend right for today's woman's versatile lifestyle. Backed by an exclusive endorsement from Woolite® Fabric Wash, Bernardo has emerged as a clear leader in a new wave of technologically-enhanced clothing – or Superfashion? – that is easy to wear and easy to care for.
