PPR Challenge #12: House of Cornish

This week’s challenge was the car/camera/roof top/ street inspired look, and remake another look. That undecided mish-mash seemed just crazy-pants to me. But they still do not have me on retainer as a consultant to the production team. Alas.

My design is a street look. It’s super sheer, with doubled fabric in strategic places. The top is big and blousy, but because its sheer, and because I fitted the garment, the model’s shape is not lost. (oh how I WISH that Amanda had taken some tucks in some of her work. The looks would have been more feminine and less “drown the model in your color story”)

There are REAL pants underneath. They are (faux) ultra suede.

The back is just sheer and flowing and wonderful.

I feel like if the judges have responded to SO many big volume looks that Amanda has sent down the runway, that they will respond positively to this one. It may not be ground breaking in the world of fashion. But it is good use of materials, and flattering to the woman. Zack will appriciate the construction of the pants. He might even try them on.

    • That top with the double layers “in strategic places” is well thought out and flattering to a “real woman’s proportions.” Probably one of your strongest looks of the season. Congratulations–you are advancing to Fashion Week.
