Contest Brief

I need a VERY CREATIVE logo done for my clothing company. Its one-of-a-kind dresses, both day wear and evening wear. My clothing is for women who want to be different and very elegant. The logo should reflect that. The name is "StandOut Couture".
1. It needs to be UNIQUE, creative, modern , and elegant.
2. "O" in "StandOut" needs to be capitalized, but still be part of the word "StandOut" .
3. Needs to have interesting but easy to read font, because it will be printed on fabric labels as well.
4. Ideally it would have some type of a silhouette or a sketch ( BUT please if you use any type of drawing, silhouette, sketch, or anything like that it HAS TO BE YOUR OWN), I dont want to use any images from free image libraries. Its very important to me!!!!!
5. Also, it would be great if you can incorporate "Why try to blend in.... when you were born to STAND OUT" as a tag line, but its ok if the logo wont have that. I realize that some logos wont look good with such a long phrase, so its kind of optional.

P.S. I already did this contest a couple weeks ago, and awarded a winner, but for a couple reasons the winning design didnt work , and I need to find a new logo.
I will be actively involved and provide feedback quickly, hoping to get what Im looking for in the end.
Thank you everyone and good luck!
Once I see the logo I really like I will close the contest early.
P.P.S. Dear designers. In my brief I specifically asked not to use clipart or images that you did not create yourself. I am not interested in a logo that uses free clipart images. Since you, designers, would know better than me if anyone is using such, please let me know ASAP and those entries will be rejected.

    Please check out #334. It will work great at any size and it's a silhouette of you in that gorgeous short pink dress sitting on the stool, but I added flowing hair (instead of the undo) so that it would be more feminine and dramatic.

      I like the silhouette and the whole idea of a girl sitting on letter "T". its very good. Needs some work though: I dont like the font, its too plain. In some cases I would not be able to use the silhouette, just letters, that is why font needs to be interesting as well. Pink color is also not my thing, but I know it can be easily changed

    And the silhouettes for my logo was created from your pictures. See http://standoutcouture.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/53.jpg and http://standoutcouture.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/91.jpg

      being straight forward is exactly what we need. Your feedback to me is more valuable than winning the contest itself. This is exactly what designing is about. Ensuring the client is happy with the final product and ensuring that all steps along the way are followed, be that changing the design one time or one hundred times :)

      It is too similar with mine, because the dress flows over the edge of the leter C :))
