Project Runway - Week Four

Okay, I missed last week and I would have been eliminated, but reality intruded and I had no choice (well, I could have given up sleeping, or stayed home from work...) I had a paying deadline and had to be a grown-up for a minute, but luckily I'm still here, still playing.

This week's challenge was to design an outfit for the Olympics opening ceremony.



My design is a capri-length pant with tailored cuffs and red buttons at the wide waistband. There is a simple white shell underneath the cropped jacket, which also has cuffed sleeves. The shoes are red patent leather eyelet peep toe flats by Rafe New York from the Bluefly accessory wall. I think this ensemble is very stylish and would suit a variety of body types, including the buff physiques of our female athletes. I'm really enjoying this season of Project Runway, but would love to see more inventive designs come down the runway. It seems like the designers are playing it safe, for the most part.

I like your design better than most on the show. The designers did not seem to have much of a feel for Olympic couture!
