For the 8th challenge of Project Runway. The challenge was to design 2 outerwear looks (for autumn) with the assigned colors, and to incorporate 1 graphic tee.
Color palette: Hunter Green, Camel, Brown, Light Gray, Brown Leather
About the design...
Okay, I'll admit that I had a really hard time with this one, due to the fact that it is exactly my thing so, therefore, I get so overwhelmed with the thought of so much freedom that my brain goes on overdrive and can't think of what to do. I must have done this over and changed my designs a million different times! I'll also admit that I hated these colors (and I hated the winning teams designs in the show), but in the end it looks awesome!
My previous designs bore me to death because I've been toning down my usual thing, so I'm cutting loose for this challenge!
I chose to do an army-style jacket to go over the first look. I debated between a zipper and buttons, but I ended up choosing snaps. When closed, one flap on the collar of the jacket overlaps the other side. To me, this is the casual look, so I paired the tee and some pants with it. For the shirt, I used the different browns to create a sort of candy and chocolate look with my crown logo, to reflect the sweet and young aspect of my style. The pants are simple and grey.
For the second look, I wanted to do a sweater-dress (of course). Initially, I was afraid that the neck and collar seemed a bit too stiff and harsh, but the soft color helped get the effect I wanted. The pockets are flat and zippered, so that they won't add any extra bulk to the hips. I paired it with grey leggings, to link it to the pants on the first look.
I'm really happy how both of these came out! I feel like my aesthetic has shown through the best on this challenge.
Styling and Accessories
I don't know if anyone has noticed, but I've been drawing the same girl for all of these challenges. She acts as my model, so I don't change her hair color or length. For this challenge, I braided her hair back in a French braid and gave her a cat eye. Her accessories are Robert Rose Bracelet Silver Bracelet [link] (it's supposed to show when she takes off the jacket) and Enzo Angolini Yareena Studded Ankle Boots [link] .
For the right side design, I decided to draw a different model, since the designers on the show obviously didn't have the same model for all the designs this challenge. Therefore, I got to make up a model that suited my purposes! I wanted her to have short, glossy black hair that was cut with rougher edges. She also has a black cat-eye. Her accessories are Jessica Simpson Long Boots Brown Leather [link] and Ralph Lauren Hand Bag Brown Leather [link] .
Accessories are from Lord & Taylor.
