Carrie’s RECAP of Episode 1:
Design a garment you’d showcase in Spring Fashion Week using fabric provided for you.
I purposely stayed away from black to show the judges that I’m not afraid of color and, in fact, enjoy it, so I picked this super cool Non-Stretch Cotton Print that reminded me of television static/distortion. The print was already very busy so I didn’t want to add any contrast fabrics; plus there weren’t any other good selections I thought would work with this.
I had originally sketched an additional bolero jacket, thinking I’d have time… and I probably would’ve if it weren’t for those stupid little things that go wrong that you have to cater to (ah, such is life)! :P I played with the idea of interesting cut-outs and prominent hip-structure because my model’s body-type would allow for that type of emphasis, and I felt it would flatter her and make her look super cool and unique.
I am ECSTATIC about my garment; I used every last second I got and completely finished it. I’m very pleased with how my cool, futuristic Spring cocktail dress turned out and my model was PERFECT for it!
As for who was on the top and bottom, I’ll let you guys discuss that one… but all I’ll say, without sounding full of myself, is that I strongly felt I would be in the top this challenge alongside others that weren’t picked. Welp, you never know how the judges are going to feel that day.
BTW can we talk about how my model Ploy ( jewelsmodelmanagement ) stomped that runway?! She looks even cooler in those ALDO ( aldorise ) sunglasses and I totally need some in my life :( /coughhialdocough ♥
