Go Big or Go Home!
This week our challenge was to create a design for our models with them on stilts. It was an interesting challenge. It is hard to work with the model when she can't stand up during fittings....dowl rods for feet don't work so well.
When I first started out I thought I wanted to do pants with some kind of skirt over it and a wrap top. So into the studio I went. On the show, the designers were paired up with another designer. Being that I live blocks away from Kat we got together to work on our own designs. She is a great resource and it is fun bouncing ideas off each other. Mostly me needing direction.
I ended up doing pants after I saw how they turned out. I was so proud that I figured out how to make a pattern (I guess the years of making PJ's for my boys paid off :) )My top is styled off of an Indian Sari.
I am not sure where my model would be wearing this as I am not sure she would be able to go very far on stilts.
Watch next week will be a "normal" challenge and I will be out of town on vacation. Haven't decided if I am going to try to make the challenges up as I will have 2 to do.
