PPR Challeng #8 Rainway: House of Cornish

This was one of the most clever challenges I have watched in a long time. We needed to make an avant garde look that would also hold up in the RAIN!
Let’s start the show.

This dress, you will see, is in the same family as my previous design, but I liked it so much, I created a second variation for the judges.
(Let me just interject that I try to make the looks with things from my stash as much as possible.

And I have had these beautiful ribbon cards for a LONG time now. Somehow, they just seemed right for the Rain challenge. Their water color effect is playful and looks like a river.)
You can see, I used silk. I made a modified Carol Brady hostess outfit, with a slim pant underneath.
The dress layer has an empire waist and is finished on the top seam.

Covering the whole ensemble is a floor length super-swing coat/poncho. (concho or poat?)

And a hat. Both completely waterproof.
I would LOVE to have a poat like this one.
Nina said she saw this last week. Zac said the construction was great. Heidi would wear it, but without the pants underneath.) And Libby didn’t see my ribbon look last week, so she really liked it. I will stand by my work. I really like it. I love the colors . I looked GREAT on the runway. And when the model walked, the static made the ribbons cling to the inside of the poat, and it looked like it was electrified.
