On the most recent episode of Lifetime’s Project Runway, the designers were instructed to create fashion-forward prom wear made entirely from Duck® Tape brand duct tape. Their designs were presented to high school students, whose votes for their favorite design were considered by the PR judges.
No high school students here, but Tom was my assistant in duct tape shopping.
Not pictured: The black Duck® Tape that Tom and Lindsey picked up for me later. Aside: Tim and I were both sad that this brand encourages people to think it’s “duck tape” and not “duct tape,” but they do have some great colors and designs.
I chose Natalie as my model for this challenge.

It’s two layers, one of silver and one of print.
Natalie’s dress looks young and fun.
Hope you’ve enjoyed my duct tape challenge. See you next time on the runway!
