rip her to shreds


Welcome back to LJ Runway Monday!

Dress Eleven: The designers on Bravo's Project Runway were given the task of designing for each other. The looks were to be inspired by different genres of music. The designers wore their outfits down the runway; the models were not used for this challenge.

LJ Runway's Heidi Gunn challenged us to design for each other's models. The looks were to be inspired by different genres of music. Heidi Gunn selected model assignments and music genres. Which meant I was assigned to design a punk look for Figaro.


Here's what I created.





About the design: When I think of punk, I think of the late 1970s to early 1980s. I like the DIY fashion of that era, and the ripped, shredded, aggressive look of the clothes then. I wanted to create a hybrid of New York and London punk glamour and bring it into today.

First, I created a tube dress from a piece of printed black silk. Unfortunately, it was too small. Fortunately, punk rock is all about ripping, so I tore the seam open and enlarged it by using duct tape. Unsure of how short I wanted the dress, I started cutting the silk to test lengths. Then I started liking the look of the holes in it. Then I turned it upside down and liked the idea of a vented chest piece, so I reconstructed the back with more duct tape and added hooks and eyes for closures. Then I found a leftover piece of stars and stripes fabric from the Olympics challenge and used it with some red fabric ribbon to make a sort of USA bikini top, which would be seen through the vented top of the dress. To finish off the look, I wound some wire around Figaro's wrist to make a bracelet, and selected red stockings, black heeled boots, and gold earrings from the bluefly.com accessory wall.



Figaro: Oh my God, Mark! Like, look what he did to my hair! B-to-the-ig!

Timothy: (Hissing between clenched teeth.)Shut up! Let the judges talk.
