PPR Challenge #12 – Kat’s Design

Challenge – The Finale Challenge
Challenge – Create a three look mini collection inspired by Governors Island and the sculpture exhibit on it. It must demonstrate a range (pants, dresses, jumpers, various silhouettes, etc) and show your design vision.

For Project Project Runway we only asked everyone to do one look, but once I got started I ended up doing the full mini collection.

My looks were inspired by the colors and lines of the sculpture exhibit.

Look 1 is formal separates.

The top has one sleeve and a high neck on one side and is gathered on the other. I kept the skirt simple and straight to let the top be the star.
Look 2 is a jacket and pants.

Once again the bottom is simple. The top is a sleeveless jacket with a large collar and deep v front. The belt of the jacket brings in the stripes.
Look 3 is a cocktail dress.

The fabric is menswear inspired, but the dress definitely is tailored to show off a woman’s curves.

I think I did a good job of showing a range of looks for the challenge, but they all look like they are from the same line. The jacket could be worn over the dress and the striped top could be worn with the pants. Heidi would want to wear the short cocktail dress. Nina would think both the striped top and jacket are editorial. Michael would think this line has looks actual women would want to buy and wear. Guess I’m going to fashion week.

    • Ros
    • Nice collection. I like the way that the stripes are at different angles in each piece so that together they reference the sculpture even more strongly.

      I’m out this week. No inspiration and the one garment I attempted is an unqualified disaster. Tears and tantrums in the workroom and not even Tim could stop me storming off set.
