Welcome back to LJ Runway Monday!
Final Challenge, Part 2: Hi! I can’t believe this is it. It seems like just last week we were cobbling a dress together out of food products. LJ Runway has been a very fun experience, and I’d like to thank my fellow contestants and our judges for making this a very fun experience.
My final collection was a lot of fun to create. Heidi Gunn asked us to make five looks for our final collection. I thought about making a full collection–dresses, skirts, suits, formal, casual, the kit and kaboodle. But, as I thought about the past challenges, I decided that I’ve already shown that I can do pants, shorts, suits, and all that jazz. We didn’t really get to do a lot of dresses, or formal gowns. Not without using wacky materials, or other contingencies. So I decided to do a collection of dresses. I drew inspiration from my paintings. Particularly Untitled #1 and Untitled #2. Most of my paintings have colors trying to break through layers of dark paint. My LJ Runway collection brings this theme to fashion with layers of fabric acting as layers of paint on a canvas. I hope you enjoy it!
Here’s my final collection:
