Today is another elimination day and to be honest I’m not feeling confident about it. Outerwear is not my strong suit and I really don’t like the idea of multifunctional clothing. Most people don’t want their clothing to do more than cover their bodies and express who they are as a person. Of course, if the clothing has pockets they should hold their personal belongings. I suppose I like the idea I came up with which is a jacket that can quickly detach to become everything one might need to have for a quick picnic in the park. The skirt panel of the jacket detaches to become a picnic blanket and the hood folds into a pillow leaving the girl wearing a cute little top that would pair well with a bikini bottom. Believe it or not, I have also come down with a pretty serious fever. Trying to handsew 25 snaps onto my jacket is a nightmare. My hands won’t stop shaking and I can’t focus because all I want to do is sleep. Just my luck! Oh well, so they say, the show must go on. As I watched the show, I saw Isaac and Kelly smile when my jacket came apart. I thought for sure they would say something nice about it but once again, I find myself the weakest link on the winning team. I just feel so frustrated because I am a better designer than I am showing and I really want to impress the judges. And of course the guest judge is one of my all-time favorite designers, Norma Kamali! I hope she will see me for more than this one competition and somehow my talent as a designer will come through. The judges like what I did and have expressed a sincere interest for me to push myself. I am determined to impress them and I sure hope I do it before I get voted off the show. I must succeed!! I can’t wait for the next challenge and I will get it right.
