“As you know Designers, Project Runway is now in fabulous LA which offers all the hip happenings you could ever hope for. I know you’ve already been to Food to buy this week’s challenge fabric, The New York Times Magazine cover for Jan. 10th…
but this week we have a surprise for you! One of our beautiful models has been invited to participate in a paper doll show at the Fifty 24 LA Gallery sponsored by M.I.S.S. Omnimedia and Upper Playground, and since it’s here in Los Angeles, you’ll each be designing an outfit for yourself to wear to the opening!”
“Here’s the poster for the show….
And here’s our model flaunting a couple of styles inspired by the ever fashionable Miss Ommnimedia herself, Gabriella Davi-Khorasanee, (http://www.missomnimedia.com) using some ephemera supplied for the event.”
I was reading through the rest of the paper and found a look by Dries Van Noten in the Style section that I absolutely fell in love with. This is the outfit that will be my inspiration for today. Here it is big with a short Derek Lam number in back, both displaying a nice mix of prints, something I’ve always loved.
“Ok, Designer, are you ready for the runway?”
“I’m ready Tim!”
“Ok, let’s go!”
