For the 7th challenge of Project Runway (yes, I know I missed one), in which the goal was to design a piece to fit in/complete Lord & Taylor's PR Collection: [link]
I'm still waiting for the judges to realize that Dmitry should win already, seeing as he always does the best stuff. I like Christopher, but I hated his dress for this challenge.
About the design...
It was definitely a pain in a butt to do something simple. Ironically, a lot of my previous designs aren't overly-complex...maybe it was just because I was over-thinking "simple". Anyway...since we weren't allowed to use black, and since the rest of the collection was mostly warm colors, I chose to go with gunmetal grey, to balance with the other grey dress and the blue one.
I tried to tie the dress in with the collection with the waistline, and with the neckline by expanding the round neckline further down for variance. Other than that, its simple, simple, simple. I added a bronze zipper for a bit of color.
Styling and Accessories
The hair is just some soft waves and the makeup is in natural tones.
Accessories are from Lord & Taylor.
Steve Madden: Belt Grey wood-like finish [link] to accent the color of the dress and Jessica Simpson: Waleo Platform Pumps [link] for a pop of blue.
