Joe totally eluded me in the workroom. When I left the designers that night, he was going to "paint" the muslin infrastructure with tomato paste and sauce. Imagine the smell on the runway? Imagine the visual association with blood? And that's not a good metaphor. I have to say that I loved his oven mitt bodice: Elsa Schiaparelli meets Claire McCardell. But the skirt was going to matter, needless to say. The next morning, and to my great relief, the skirt had neither sauce nor paste. Instead, Joe used the labels from the cans and embellished them with fusilli pasta. Viva Italiano!
Keith and Suede chose the same navy and white checkerboard plastic tablecloth for the core of their design. In Keith's case, the silhouette and proportions were good, and, owing to wide pleating in the skirt, we could see the lighter reverse of the print. I responded well to his design, but for the tablecloth aspect. But most of the designers had this issue, so Keith would not stand alone. But he had to do something else to enhance the look. He opted to cut up an aluminum foil car shade for a wide waistband. This served him well, as it accentuated the bell silhouette of the skirt and the sleekness oif the halter top. Hopefully, the judges would respond as well as I.
Kenley embraced innovative, thankfully. She cut up a plastic ball to create a breastplate, and she used the webbing from a colorful lawn chair for an asymmetrical patchwork skirt. Her only use of the dreaded tablecloth was for a waistband, so I forgave her. The bright, effervescent dress that she created truly exuded fashion.
Korto used a yellow paper tablecloth for the entirety of her look, and that concerned me enormously. To me, the floor length kimono sleeved dress that she created was a mere derivation of the Han-Bok, the traditional costume of Korea. Even her use of the kale and tomato neck embellishment concerned me, because it was merely that, an embellishment. On Korto's behalf, I was relieved (and a little stunned) that the judges responded so positively to her design. In fact, they singled it out as one of the top three. I was puzzled, but go figure.
I'm a university working on an architecture project, and I just want to get an answer to a really quick question!
How is the backdrop of the runway on Project Runway lit?
I know it sound silly but I really want to make use of the distances and type of lighting used in the set up so you can see the silhouette moving around the corner. If someone could give me some rough measurements/types of light and screen used, I will be soo grateful! I've looked everywhere to no avail.
Thank you, Bobby
What is the secret of the extremely successfully and fashionable Coco Chanel's sleeves, and arnholes. I realize that she pay especial attention at that part of the 'assembly' of any jacket; and that she advocated/ promoted sleves ans shoulders construccions that allowed free movement. What the tip was - maybe it is still apply ]. Can you help me despite the fact that fashions and garment fabrics have change si much since Coco's times that maybe that construccion is irrelevant. Thanks, nevertheless, Marta C.
lol wow you're really itnakg this to heart so you hate her clearly, she must have hurt you deeply, but she is still a somebody, the fact that you and I and everyone that has seen the show or has seen her work as a model or in other things knows her name makes her a somebody and the fact that she has had a career being her as a modeling and on tv or radio since the age of 19, I would say she has had and is still producing a much longer career that lots of models
