Last week the Project Runway designers were asked to create a look for Project Runway judge and Marie Claire fashion director, Nina Garcia, that she could wear to work in the day and then to an industry event in the evening. We Project Project Runway designers were given the same challenge and this is what I came up with! The dress is done in a gray jersey cotton and has a yellow silk band at the waist. I liked the juxtaposition of the casual jersey and classy silk materials and I think the overall shape of the dress can move well from day to evening.
Last week on project runway they separated the designers into teams of two and had them design outfits for models on stilts. We got the same challenge for Project Project Runway except for the teams part, which might have been fun, but also more difficult since we live all around the world. On the show the judges didn't really like anything too costumey, but to me that seemed at odds with Heidi's instructions at the begining to make the looks "eye-catching, imaginative and truly larger-than-life." Oh well, I just made what I wanted to make anyway because they don't kick you off PPR if they don't like your look :)
Last week on Project Runway the designers were taken to a pet store for their unconventional challenge. They were told that they could only use items from the pet store to make their garments and that the judges frowned upon the use of items that correlated to fabric, such as dog beds. In the end they came up with some pretty inventive stuff! Our task this week on Project Project Runway was the same and you can see how my dress turned out! What do you think my materials were?
Last week on Project Runway the designers were woken up at 5am and told to grab a bed sheet and come as they were to Parsons. The sheet and their PJs were to be the only materials they could use for the first challenge. On Project Project Runway we were asked to create a look using either the clothes our model is currently wearing OR
a 10" x 10" square of fabric similar to our own pajamas plus a 10" x 10" square of white cotton to represent the sheet. This cute and flirty dress is what I came up with.
A new season of Project Runway has begun and with it has started a new season of Project Project Runway! Project Project Runway is brought to us by Susi and Kat, creators of Iron Craft, and it is a weekly fashion challenge that follows along with the show. Each week, after they reveal what the challenge is on the show, we are given the same challenge, but our models are dolls. My model is Dani, a Liv doll with attitude and great style.
Challenge #1 is Come as you are. The designers on the show were woken at 5am and told to grab a sheet and come on down to the studio in their PJs. The sheet and their PJs were all the material they were allowed to work with for this challenge. The Project Project Runway designers are allowed to use either the clothes our model is currently wearing OR a 10″ x 10″ square of fabric similar to our own pajamas plus a 10" x 10" square of white cotton to represent the sheet. Tune in next week to see what new duds I whip up for my model :)
