Korto designed for Megan, who's debating between med or another graduate program and who works in a lab. I was worried sick when I first checked in with Korto, because the green printed dress looked like it was traveling down the dowdy trail. Furthermore, the burlap textured cafe-au-lait textile for the jacket with ¾ sleeves appeared to be an unlikely partner for the print. Thankfully, Korto's tailoring of the jacket and construction of the dress were impeccable, so the judges' deliberation would conclude as a matter of taste, and she was in the judges' top three. Whew!
I don't understand the judges' raptures for this outfit at all. The colors are pretty much the same as the "camoflage" skirt and brown top that got Suade auf'ed. The two fabrics have nothing to do with each other. The jacket is ugly -- looks as if it's too small and gaps over the cleavage and the belly.
When Nina said it looked expensive, I had to agree -- many expensive pieces of clothing are agressively rough and ugly. That jacket certainly fell in that category.
