Season 11 of Lifetime’s Project Runway kicked off last week with a twist: All season, the designers will be working in teams to mimic real-world design, where fashion and fashion collections are group efforts.
Looking around me, I see…no team. All you get is another season of Becks! In the interest of full disclosure, this week’s design was inspired by Karl Lagerfeld’s 2013 Spring/Summer Haute Couture line for Chanel. Charlie sent me a link so I could see all seventeen minutes of this breathtaking show (if you’d like to see it, too, clicking that will take you to the youtube video).
I chose Chloe to model my ready-to-wear look designed for a smaller budget.
A cotton suit in blue-gray shot through with threads of white and silver.
Silver-and-blue star buttons are like a night sky…
Snow flakes adorn what appear to be stockings or leggings but flare over Chloe’s boots as slacks would.
The boots are from Mattel. The snowflake fabric is from Lynne. Hope you’ve enjoyed this first design from the new season. See you next time on the runway!
