I'm actually really pleased with this design and if I don't win this challenge, I would be a tad bit upset, because I was meant to design red carpet wear ;D
Project Runway All Star's,
we were supposed to repurpose fabrics, trims, etc...used by us fellow designers throughout this season, as well as an AirDye fabric as our "main fabric" for our red carpet look.
first, the fabrics I "re-purposed"
1) lace used in
's first challenge look ->[link]
2) left-over cutouts from my fourth challenge look ->[link]
3) leather from, like, all my old looks-> [link]
...what can i say. i love leather...
4) black fabric used in
first challenge look here ->[link]
second, details of my design:
i wanted to play up the hourglass figure, so to do this, I decided to design an optical illusion gown, formed with structural black fabric (numero 4 above) and leather sides (numero 3 above). the back is entirely lace (numero 1 above) with peekaboo lace cutouts from the front view. lastly, cutouts (numero 2 above) form the detailing in the front. hope you lovveeed this design as much as i do XD my main fabric is the fabric Joshua used [link]
, i like how subtle the fabric is as i found all my other options to be rather...loud
accessories: black suede Piggy by NineWest...the shoe should not compete with the look [link]
->simple "black" diamond earrings
->3D flower cocktail ring
