We Have A WINNER!
Pkdesiger's collection: http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/30575990/was cute. That's what it was...cute. Pkd did herself proud. Frankly, I was especially pleased with her work and to the performance, because seeing her Frozen Sun challenge filled me with serious doubts. The collection worked however...in a weird way.
http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/30472732/worked this collection. It was unique, with each peice resembling a different time period. One of my favorites was the 2nd to last...the ombred blue satin dress! Ah! Pure beauty! His collection was beautiful. Her point of view was palpable. I saw color, fabrics, textures, layers and colors. And more colors. She went wild and led us through with an buisness suit begining with a splash of 80's and then led us to and elegant finish. I was interested, because I could see that she wasn’t playing it safe. The designs, the colorful palette, the disparate feel of each look could have easily said, "This isn’t a collection." But adriannuk's layering of pieces within looks and her ability to nuance and tether brought cohesion to the clothes.
Lashanathao's collection:http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/30568577/ was superb. The construction was there and it was very cohesive. The designs all flowed from one to another and you could mix and match ANY peice in the collection. I fell in love with her concept, her textiles and color story, but on the 17th for the first time in our relationship I was seriously concerned about the ticking of the clock… When I saw her collection, Lashanathao totally wowed me, beyond even my high expectations of her. Evne though they were not colored, the sophistication of the collection was so beautifully evident. Her construction was couture worthy, intricate and magnificent to behold. The decision could have gone either way; that is, adriannuk or Lashana. Each delivered a stunning outcome. So as I say this I congratulate Lashanathao on winning Project Designer Cycle 2, and you get the interview with: http://www.thefashiondesignersolution.com/main/index.php and possibly: http://www.bloggingprojectrunway.blogspot.com/ Again, congrats!Look out for Cycle 3!
