Tims Take

Some got it, others missed the point of the challenge!

on Jul 30, 2008

It was a muggy and rainy night ... and I meet the designers at the Atlas apartment. Yes, we're taking a field trip! It's a city-wide tour on the open deck of a tour bus. We have four stops planned. At each, a group of designers will alight, have an hour to take photos of whatever inspires them, and then return to the Atlas. They will each select one of their photos to serve as the inspiration for a design of their choice for a night out on the town.

This is the first challenge in which the designers have complete control; that is, they shop for whatever they want and they have creative freedom and latitude. They have a budget of $100 and one day to complete the challenge. And since we took our tour at night, that one day would not be eaten up by our tour.

The fabulous Sandra Bernhard is our guest judge. While I certainly associate her with personifying a night out on the town, I did not know that she is a true fashion insider. She is, and her knowledge and perceptions totally WOWed me!
