Project Runway – Less is More

Anya’s Designs for $11.50 and $50 ©Project Runway/Lifetime

In this episode of Project Runway, the designers have to create a modern 70’s look.  The race was on in Mood to find the right fabric that would inspire the theme.  Anya always has a knack for finding tribal, hip prints and being spot on with her creations.  However, she lost her money when it came time to pay.  That’s the worst that could happen.  Fortunately, Anthony Ryan was able to give her the remainder of his cash, which was $11.50.  With that, she made it work.

The designers were nice enough to give her remnants of fabric if she needed it, but Anya used what she bought and muslin to create her first look.  She dyed the muslin top a coral pumpkin color and used the tribal print as the pants.  Her second look allowed her to create a sexy jumpsuit for $50 (and she didn’t lose her money this time).  The judges loved both looks and are impressed with how Anya can turn things around and think quickly in a second.

I love the fact that Anya had less money and was still able to create a look that wowed the judges and gave her the win for this episode!  it just goes to show that in fashion, sometimes the clothing doesn’t have to be expensive, but it can look that way and that’s all that matters.  I have several pieces in my wardrobe that one may think I spent a fortune on, but it’s all about how you put it together to make an outfit and the confidence you have wearing it. 

The lesson learned? Less is sometimes more.

Project Runway Seas 9 Ep 9 – The Clothes Make the Man

PR episode last night was an out-of the-box, never tried before challenge.  Creating a look for the rock band Sheep Dogs that would perform live on the runway was quite the feat.  It appeared that most of the designers struggled with creating the right look or had no experience doing menswear.  As a contestant in this competition, I feel you should be ready for anything and also at least try your hand at creating designs outside of your traditional aesthetic.

Viktor had the only outfit that was image worthy and I still can’t figure out how Bert is still in the competition!  What he created for the lead singer was horrendous and not modern but the judges loved it!  I don’t think the client was excited about it though.  Olivier just complained throughout the whole episode and couldn’t adjust to designing for someone outside of his shape.  And he specializes in menswear?  It was definitely time for him to leave the competition.

In any business, you have to be ready to do things outside of your job description and not be married to it.  What will really shine is your reaction to the action – bring positive traction and you’ll culminate new ideas and a different outlook.
