Make It Work


Do any of you still watch Project Runway now that it has moved to Lifetime and added 30 minutes to the show? I confess that I do, though with less and less enthusiasm over time. You would think with 30 extra minutes, we would see more of Tim Gunn, but we don’t. Instead we see a lot more fighting and arguing in the workroom. They try, the scream, they holler, the flounce and they sneer, but they will never be Wendy Pepper. This week, though, one of the designers had an amazing Make It Work moment when she lost her money at the fabric store and had to work with the money other designers had to donate to her. It was a low cost challenge in the first place, so she had only $11.50 and was certain she was going home, but she dried off her tears and made it work and won the challenge. I didn’t have nearly the difficulty making this work. I love the Zaria bodysuit, leggings and miniskirt but I wanted a more formal look and decided to make it work by adding a full length skirt and allowing the Zaria miniskirt to function as an embellishment at the waist. I love how it turned out.


The very modern, sharp ruffles of the Prison skirt from Lelutka are as avant garde as the MiaMai outfit, so the addition of the skirt does not take away its modernity.


The Tosca hair echoes from of the design elements in the MiaMai skirt, the pearls similar to those in the skirt and the white scrolling an echo of the black embellishment feathers. The gorgeous parure is from Donna Flora – an example of how Art Deco jewelry can look as modern now as it did 100 years ago. The makeup is a new release from Adam n Eve called Ariadne and has some truly luscious eye shadows.
