On the most recent episode of Lifetime’s Project Runway All Stars, the designers were faced with the unconventional materials challenge. They were taken to a Christmas store and given a budget. One of the rules of the challenge was that the final design couldn’t look Christmasy.
I went to the 99 Cent store and found this stocking:
I decided to stay with the green color palette with my choice of a Monster High model, Venus McFlytrap. I designed a strapless, body-hugging dress using the stocking fabric with the satin finish.
I used the felt back of the stocking to create a double-breasted jacket for the dress.
Venus is ready for a holiday party without looking like a Christmas tree. The shoes are by Mattel, of course.
Hope you’ve enjoyed this week’s look. See you next time on the runway!
