So this week's challenge was to create a 'Green' Cocktail dress. Green meaning they had to use organic fabric that's good for the environment and stuff. Kinda boring. So to make it more challenging, the models got to buy the fabric (Mood Fabrics has a limited section of organic fabrics, some were surprisingly shiny, but I didn't see any prints) and the designers had to work with whatever the models got.
The winning dress (left) was made by Suede. I wonder what the tulle was made of that made it organic?
Suede cut strips of fabric and then Suede wrapped and stitched the strips of fabric that Suede cut, to create the dress that Suede invisioned.
Suede really needs to stop talking about Suede as if Suede was not Suede himself.
'Suede' doesn't really suit him anyway. He doesn't look like a Suede. Not like Leather Tuscadero. Now her name suited her, and that sister of hers, Pinky.
Back on track . . . Carol didn't really like Suede's dress.
Project Runway's own leather queen Stella, wished that she was working with leather instead of satin. In fact, she wished that every challenge had them working with leather. And when she caught Blayne making fun of her leather-love, she gave him a 12 years old spanking. She created this one shoulder dress with laces on the sleeve and the sides. hhmmm. Shiny.
Keith - what 'hood' is he supposed to be from with the bandana tied around his head? He made the coffin lampshade dress to the right. ehhh.
The judges made a fuss over Kendel's dress on the left here. It wasn't a favorite of mine though. The collar reminded me of Daniel's Orchid Blouse from Season 2. This model actually has breasteses, and they looked smooshed in this dress. Plus the dark belt made her seem shortwaisted. It would have looked more sleek without the belt.
Korto created this inside-out looking dress with tailfins, that the judges ripped apart. Korto ended up in tears. But It seems like the judges really like her, and there were dresses worse than hers, so she was safe.
My favorite three - Blayne, darn I liked it. I think it's more of a Club dress than Cocktail, but I thought it was cute. Made of a hot pink jersey. And I didn't hear any silly catch phrases with this dress, so that made it easier to like.
Daniel made a black satin dress with pockets. He made the model walk down the runway with her hands in the pocket, which I think threw off the look of the dress. It looks much cuter here. I mean, I like pockets in a dress, but I don't walk around with my hands in them all day. I've got things to do with my hands. I'm not sure what is going on at the back of the skirt though - I need to watch the show again.
Lastly I liked the look of Jennfier's peach and grey dress too. Simple and cute. Not really cocktail-y. But I liked it.
The bottom two were Leanne and Wesley. Leannne's dress would have been ok without the pockets and without all the loops of fabric on the back. Maybe a longer length. Leanne sells her garments on Etsy. Check her out here - http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5249055
Wesley had too many details in too small of a space with fabric that shows flaws too easily. Bye-bye to Wesley and his shorts and nerd-boy geekyness.
Phrase of the days was 'Remnant Nonsense' uttered by Jerrell while he was worrying about what type of fabric his model was out buying for the challege.
Laugh of the night was provided by Heidi talking about Suede's dress - "If I were ten years younger, I would wear it too." What does she mean? She always wears short, strapless, shiny tacky clothing.
Senator Padme Amidala from Naboo was the guest judge.
