Well, here we are at another finale. I decided to do a mini-collection like Justin, Helen and Alexandria had to show to make it to Fashion Week. I also did one look with unconventional materials like all the designers were instructed to do.
The inspiration for my collection was Fantasy or Dreams.
Though the looks are all different I think there is a cohesiveness to the collection. Let’s look at each look on its own.
This is the unconventional materials look. The top of the dress is made from a gift wrapping ribbon and the skirt is all feathers. I know feathers aren’t that unconventional in fashion, but they aren’t fabric. I think this is a fun flirty little number and I can see some starlet wearing it. My one worry is that is might read a little lingerie.
The next look is a gown done in a print I used a couple times this season. It has a mermaid shape, but the bottom is created by a pillow of black taffeta. The top is one sleeved and that sleeve has an interesting pleating detail. It’s a sleek body-conscious look with a little something extra.
Finally, I sent down a marshmallow cloud of a wedding dress. A short, white strapless dress is topped with billows of taffeta giving it a dream-like quality. The skirt is large, but because it is see-through and the dress underneath is formfitting, it does not make the wearer look larger. A wide silver waist band helps give the dress a lot of shape.
It has been another fun season of Project Project Runway. I hope you all have fun watching and will thinking of participating next time!
