Our PPR challenge this week was to design a dress for the Emmys for one of the past designers. We also had to pick the pallet from the colors of a line of Lexis cars. Which was a terribly dull set of colors as far as I am concerned. So I picked the designer I wanted to work with (Anya) and chose the color she was assigned during the show (Brown). (I picked Kooan as my design partner, even though that is not part of the assignment. I liked the way he handled not knowing what was going on).
Kooan and I found this nice chocolate heavy satin that we decided for the base. The waist corset is made from a burn out velvet in deep brown. The train is a softer brown silk, shot through with gold. The train can be worn down or held up with a finger loop
I've been a bit slow at posting last weeks Project Project Runway, but I'm here now. Our assignment was the unconventional challenge this week, and we got to go to the candy store. I've always wanted to make a Kinderegg outfit, so easy choice for me.
The Dali School of Modeling sent a new model for this challenge. The lovely CoCo. She even make foil pants look fun. The bustier is the chocolate from the candy, squished between two layers of vinyl. I did think up a way to make a skirt from the foil that could actually be worn. If a person used iron on glue to stick the foil to a base fabric, you could make it work, if it wasn't in a stretchy spot.
