PPR Challenge 1 – Kat’s Design

It’s back to the workroom with season 12 of Project Runway and a new season of Project Project Runway. For our first challenge we were asked to show our design style using parachute fabric. I picked up my fabric is a royal blue and gray. I also picked up some “parachute rope.”

I had a vision for a blue gown with a panel of gray billowing out one side. Yeah, this nylon rip-stop doesn’t billow, so I had to rethink my design.

I still did a gown with a gray insert in the skirt but I kept the insert slim and much shorter than the rest of the gown.

I did some ruching in the bodice to invoke the idea of being swept away like skydivers are in the wind. I used the rope for a strap detail.

From the Belk accessory wall, I chose a pair of silver sandals and bracelet.
The final look was not was I originally intended, but I still stand by my design. I think I probably would have been safe this week since I didn’t send a hairdressers smock or a barefoot model down the runway.
