On the most recent episode of Lifetime’s Project Runway, the designers were given a chance to
provide free labor to Heidi’s sweat shop create high-end performance-wear for Heidi Klum’s New Balance line. The winning design would be sold at select stores. Fortunately, I didn’t have to compete in field day-type challenges like the designers, but I also didn’t get access to Heidi’s fabrics. With Top Model Abby ready to help me on the runway, I improvised with fabric remnants from previous seasons’ challenges.
I wanted to create an outfit that could be used for all kinds of workout activities.
The loose fitting knit is great for going to and from a workout, or just for power walking as a day’s exercise. Along with the jacket sleeves, the yoke of the pants gives a pop of color and meshes elements of a yoga pant with a harem pant. To take the look from walking/running to gym machines or yoga, the jacket can be removed.
And underneath is a cropped red tank with capped sleeves.
I accessorized with a Mattel for Target scarf to hold back Abby’s hair in style. Of course, the Chucks are also from Mattel.
The complete look:
Heidi wanted to bring the runway to the treadmill–and I think Abby looks just as fashionably sporty leaving as arriving. See you next time on the runway!
