Jennifer created the drapiest (is that a word?) design. I don't know what textile she used to achieve that buoyancy, but it had to have been a jersey of some sort. Her orange and gray palette concerned me, because the colors did not say, "cocktails," nor did the gray apron effect of the front. But perhaps her model Alex was serving cocktails. Then, it would make sense!
Jerell merely flirted with this challenge, at least in my opinion. I know that his designs can have a profound edge, but where was it? He created a halter mini-dress in light blue with a deeper aqua panel insert in the front. The thin side panel of lace eluded me, as did the anemic looking feather trim on the hem. Jerell, please step it up.
Joe designed, uh, um, what? A slip dress? What could be more basic? Did his use of diamante spaghetti straps or the circular insert under the bust assuage me? Hardly. I suppose that the judges were simply relieved that the slip was well constructed and fit his model, Topacia. But considering that he worked with the same textile as Wesley, that may have been enough of an achievement!
Keith designed a halter mini-bubble-dress using the champagne silk/hemp blend textile. You may know that I am not a fan of anything "bubble," but he made it work. His execution of the garment was excellent, the proportions were good, and his model Runa knew how to give it runway appeal. Bravo, Keith!
