Michael Kors

The best outfit makes you guess what it is made out of.

The one thing that's kind of interesting about the Gristedes project is that it's ultimately about transformation. And taking something that you never would assume to make good-looking clothes and not only make good looking clothes, but almost make you kind of wonder "What is that made out of?" And in Kelli's instance, she not only found a way to make a great looking garment but she also found a way to change the texture of something that she found and make it into her own fabric. So I think that that was kind of double transformation.

I also Loved LOVED Daniel's blue paper cup dress. In that instance that was a fabulous single transformation. Who would have ever thought that you could mold these blue cups into a great dress? The simple truth is though, when I really looked at it, once I got over the fact of "Oh could you make a great dress out of plastic cups?" Then I'm like, "Yeah, but I know they're plastic cups." Whereas with Kelli's you're like "Oh it's great looking" and then you have the second question "Well, what IS that?" So I think that double transformation beats single transformation.
