It's My Way on the Runway6:28 PM
It's time for another Project Runway design!! This week was a group challenge and from the moment the challenge was announced there was tension among designers. I realized again this week why I really HATE Elena. She tried to control every aspect of EVERYTHING and was a real hindrance to her team. I felt like Nathan's design was one of the worst and yet, his team chose to throw Gunnar under the bus for his dress rather than stating the obvious; Nathan's pants were a HOT mess. Also, this is the first time I've even noticed Nathan and really, that's not a good thing!! I hated the whole silk charmeuse idea and I thought the pattern was kind of lame. While Raul's top was kind of a mess I disagreed that it was office inappropriate. I'd have been much more comfortable in the office all day in a ruffled top with a nice pencil skirt than a pair of ridiculous dress/pants which make my crotch look like it's hiding a BIG secret and a silky resort wear top. Although I did see the point that an older woman might be more comfortable in Nathan's ensemble than a younger one. I chose to do my design based on the winning gown by Melissa.
I watched this episode two days before I did the art and for some reason I was thinking the blue was much brighter so you can see that the color is all wrong. BUT I still like the way they turned out. The back of the dress had a zipper running up it in a kind of wavy pattern which I could not find a picture of for the life of me. While I loved this dress I also felt that it wasn't really work appropriate. It's just a bit too much for most offices! I hope you're all enjoying the series!
