Can you believe this challenge means we are over halfway through Project Real Way? Me neither!
If you’re just catching up, watch all webisodes below:
Be sure to watch Project Runway as it airs Thursday nights at 9pm on Lifetime (not sponsored). Then, watch me as I attempt to complete the challenge at home and post the following Thursday before the next week’s episode. Although it won’t be exactly the same, I will do my best to complete the challenge given financial and time constraints.
Special Thanks to:
Mom – think of her as my Tim Gunn
Diana Arand – Videographer extraordinaire!
Britex Fabrics – The best fabric store in San Francisco!
Ready to watch? Me too!
I wanted to create a jumpsuit this week, along the theme of painter’s overalls or an aviation jumpsuit. These ‘practical’ jumpsuits provide all of the special pockets for the worker’s tools, which is how I thought of the woman in the Urban Jungle. She needs special places for her sunglasses, cell phone, lipgloss, metro card and headphones in order to survive daily city life. I wanted to use a more traditional menswear fabric in order to create the juxtaposition of work and play, and focused a lot on the fit of the jumpsuit. I even have special snap tabs on the neckline that hold your headphones up so you avoid any tangles or dropping of your headphones when you are not using them.
