Project Project Runway Season 13 Finale – House of Cornish

Here we are at the finale! But first, lets start with a review of the looks that got me to Fashion week this season.

The danger for me here was to go the route of Sean.  He “over-fringed”. I found myself doing a lot of strip/ribbon looks in this collection. I learned a lot, and they evolved, but still.  I could have done a big ribbon wedding dress, and Nina would have booted me right off the runway.So I went in another direction. I was inspired by all the coats I saw this season. But lets face it, most of them were missteps. So I went ahead and did my own interpretation of a coat.

Here I give you a fitted winter coat. When I decided to attempt a coat, it had to be classic, with a twist. So camel cashmere wool is the standard. While the coat looks plain, it is edited down, sophisticated, and impeccably well made.

It is brighter than the normal caramel color, and closer to ivory.

I hope the judges appreciate the work and craftsmanship. I will stand by this look all day long. It took a long time to get it to look the way I wanted it to. This is not a show stopping look, but it is certainly a style statement, and an anchor in my collection.

Thanks for playing and following along. It has been a fun show. See you on the runway!

    • Congratulations on another season. I really like this look. The coat has a fitted, finished and luxe took to it. Cashmere–WOW. My favorite look of the House of Cornish was the gold fitted dress for the short, shiny challenge. Well done.

    • Wow, you’ve made some great looks this season! And there’s actually a lot of variety. I think I like the very first ‘strip’ dress the best – that colour is sensational and I love the contrasting textures too.

      I’m so impressed with your coat. That’s some really great tailoring skills and it’s such an elegant, wearable final piece.
