Season 13

Ep 1

Being the first challenge I was extremely excited yet also very scared. The designer challenge was to create a spring inspired from fabrics out of a mystery box on our work station. In an produced effort to have us make nice with other designers, we were also aloud to trade fabrics as well. Much to my surprise, I quite enjoyed the fabrics in my box, and designed a casually cool romper. Although I placed next to eliminated, I really liked my look. If you have any questions about this episode or look, please send me an email!

Ep 2

This was my absolute favorite challenge out of my short lived experience on PR. The design challenge was to create an individual but cohesive look , in teams of three, out of unconventional materials; specifically movie materials. From the balcony I saw a huge stack of CD's and knew they had to be mine. My final look was created by separating the plastic layer from the film layer of the CD, dropping a piece of glue to create the chemical reaction your seeing in the dress, and then strategically piece them on a and dyed muslin base. Although my team was safe, I think we really slayed it.

Ep 3

Our challenge for episode 3 was to take a memory from our past, and apply it to how we see fashion evolving in 20 years. Being a Floridan, I grew up around water; lakes, rivers, pools, and the ocean. My mom always did her best to treat her boys to a good time albeit on a very tight budget. Memories of my childhood directly relate to the ocean and fun times I had. In thinking about the ocean, and the future, there is no denying climate change and sea levels rising, so my design was a play on just that. I created a sub par chic wanna be scuba suit that had major potential but I really messed this one up. I would have done so many things different here! Thankfully it wasn't horrible and I made it through.

Ep 4

This was my least favorite challenge in my tenure with PR. The winner of ep 3 was assigned the task of deligating a mens suit in which we had to reinterpret into a woman's wearable something. The design had to be made from at least 50% of the suit, and supplemental fabrics from mood. My suit was really horrible. I ended up buying some clear vinyl to place over the suit fabric to give it a multi dimension, and used faux leather to create the straps and angled hip piecings. Like I said, I did not like this challenge, at all, but at the end of the day I look at my dress and am like ahhh that was an ugly AF leisure suit, okayyyyyyyy I see you designer.

Ep 5

I don't even know where to begin, other than saying I really F******D this one up. The challenge was to design Heidi Klum a red carpet worthy dress. I was all for it, so excited, its Heidi friggin Klum, a super model! Like she can out on a paper bag and be fab. I intended on manipulating the fabric in such a was as to create a geometric origami type of situation. Ultimately my fabric choice was a nightmare for my design and I ended up designing what was called a wearable Christmas ornament, and I really h.a.t.e.d it. Heidi did too, and thus I was double eliminated.

Season 5

Ep 1

In this All Star challenge we were asked to design a look based on the moment we knew we were supposed to be a fashion designer. I took my design back to when an old room mate found one of my old sketch books. Littered with pages of my favorite character from Final Fantasy 10, Yuna, in new looks. Yuna was a summoner, a character with the ability to evoke a sprit to help aid her in battle. My room mate said I really needed to learn how to make what I was drawing. So I did.  My design was an interpretation of the etherial, magical, and beautiful Yuna.

Ep 2

Our second challenge for PRAS was to design a look that showcased the movement of fabric. Coming off my fantasy high, I decided I wanted to stay in that lane. I created the woman of the storm. She was  bold, daring, and powerful, yet feminine and delicate. I wish I had more chiffon to really make a statement, but mehhhhh. I was safe this challenge.

Ep 3

Teamed up for this opposites challenge, we created a hard and soft look. I'll be the first to admit, I didn't like our opposites theme, it was so generic. Persuaded, I went with it and created the soft look. In hindsight, we should have called it Day Lady/ Night Worker..... I was responsible for my look, and most of the sewing from the Lady of the Night look too. My team was bottom, but both saved due to judges believing we just missed the mark but had more to give. Thank You.

Ep 4

There's something magical in having to use unconventional materials to create a runway look. In this challenge we were to use emergency service materials to design for the runway. I used bio hazard bags, catheters (cough, cough), and sherif badges to make a honky tonkie deep V with fringe dress. I really had fun with this challenge, and playing with catheters was actually a fun time, although I would never want to use one for reals.

Ep 5

This wasn't a fun challenge for me, although I placed second. I didn't really find the joy in this one. We were to create a winter wear look for a naturist, a person who enjoys being in the flesh. I was one of the half, who got a male model, which was part of the "bigger challenge", but all the designers with men slayed it.... so. I see the juxtaposition in the challenge, like cool, nice one challenge producers. I designed a  jacket, pant, sweater, and scarf. Model enjoyed it, Judges enjoyed it. Yey.

Ep 6

I have a lot to say about this one. I'll start with when I watched it on TV for the first time. Thanks production for trying to make me look like the only fool who used a glue gun, when nearly everyone else had been going ham with one too. Your prized designers included m'kay. Ok that's off my chest. We were to create a baroque inspired couture like gown for this challenge. The single most problem I had with this challenge was the metallic thread I bought. It was used to top stitch in-between my slash lines in hopes to gleam in the runway light. The thread LITERALLY wouldn't stop snapping and I was in a constant state of re-threading, eating up extremely valuable time. A huge disappointment happened in the last five minutes when the zip of my dress irreparably split down the back. In our panic, we forgot to put on the thigh high "grieves" I made to style and complete the look with. I got ripped on the runway, and thus eliminated. I will say this dress had major potential, I was just being stubborn after all you couldn't even see the metallic thread on the runway anyways.
