cycle seven | challenge six
accessorize


Challenge Reminder--
Each designer can choose ONE (at a time, no mad rush like with the Barbies) to build an outfit around. The outfit must not merely complement or "go with" the accessory, but must INCORPORATE IT as part of a single thought. The outfit and the accessory must look as though they were made to be together. We'll also be judging on the accessory that you choose as well as innovation and overall design, so be careful with what you choose! Leave a comment of the one you want. The first designer who picks the item will get it, so check comments to see if your item has been selected. If so, pick another. I want to see some BOLD design, and interesting colors.

cycle seven | challenge five
a garden party


Challenge Reminder--
For your next challenge I'd like for you to pick a flower and then to create a party dress inspired by that flower. Sounds simple right? Correct. However I want to see something extravagant and creative; something Avant Garde. This challenge is all about taking a simple & typical inspiration and turning it around to create something interesting and innovative.

cycle seven | challenge four
black magic


Challenge Reminder--
Black is the new black. For this next challenge I'd like for you to create a fabulous entirely black ensemble (including accessories) that can be taken from a day look to a evening look with a few simple accessory changes. It's all about details, texture, & differentiating yourselves because you all will be using the same one color. This challenge is very easy and is just for you (and me) back into the swing of things.

"Welcome designers and observers to project designer Cycle 7. It takes a keen eye and great taste to keep the rich and famous looking fabulous—which is why gifted designers can become just as paparazzi-worthy as their clientele. Now that I'm on the prowl for "the" new look, 14 hopefuls will get a shot showing off their fashion chops and "kick- starting" their career."

Challenge Reminder--
This spring, many designers (especially Marky Marc) played with the idea of transparency. Design an outfit incorporating sheer fabrics, cutout panels, or whatever else you can think of to demonstrate that idea. Bonus points if your design has some kind of deeper message!

Challenge Reminder--
For the first challenge, we wanted to start off with something light, and something a bit fun. Your brief is to design an outfit based upon your favorite word. The outfit must reflect your favorite word to a "t" and be flawlessly executed. You must also use your model which can be found here as well as the rules for using your models.

design topic 12
the collections - finale

click here for music


Challenge Reminder: Your next challenge is to design a Spring/Summer 07 collection for DA Fashion Week (It can be "Fall-ish if you wish ;)). Make a line of TWELVE separate looks. They must be YOU! They MUST be fierce! Don't think about playing it safe...go WILD! They must be cohesive, have a common element, and have your point of view as a designer. You must have a title for your collection, a background story and theme, and of course it should be colored to some extent.

design topic 11
mode française


Challenge Reminder: It's been about a month and a half since your model has debuted on the cover of Vogue, and you've very quickly made a name for yourself. You've been designing looks for everyone almost as many times Karl Lagerfeld has called you "his muse" and even had a few coffee dates with Anna Wintour herself! She thinks of you and your model as the perfect pair, and you've just landed the trip of a lifetime: An all-expenses paid invitation to Paris Fashion Week! While the entire week will be a whirlwind of excitement, there will be one event in particular where your model must look beyond amazing. The editor-in-chief of French Vogue will be throwing you and your model a glittering A-list bash at her Paris mansion at the end of the week. Congratulations darling - your hard work has paid off and now all you have to do is look incredible. No pressure, right? ;D You must design a look for your model, and YOURSELF. The top 3 of this challenge will move on to fashion week!!!!!

design topic 10
get it yacht

Challenge Reminder: You've finally convinced your model to charter out her gorgeous yacht for a group of your closest friends, and of course, hers. She's asked you to design a swimsuit and cover-up that will keep her looking cool in the California sunshine, while still looking fabulous, because you know where there are tons of famous people, the paparazzi will be there. Since this is your time to shine, make it you, and innovative, but still make it flattering becauseshe has to look great in all angles for the camera (show a back view!).

Design Topic 9: The Thrill of the Hunt

"Welcome designers and observers to project designer Cycle 6.

Now that I'm on the prowl for "the" new look, 14 hopefuls will get a shot showing off their fashion chops and "kick- starting" their career."

Challenge Reminder: For this challenge you'll all be working together to design a mini collection for their new line TOTH (The Thrill of the Hunt). You'll each be designing one piece for the mini collection, but all of the designs will be have to have a common theme. You guys as a group will choose that theme, and design a collection around it. You can use DAmn, or AIM, or anything you want to work around this and discuss, but that's the challenge. Also...I forgot to tell you...it's a men's line, so you'll be designing menswear. Remember, it has to be functional, but fashionable, and also add a price to each garment for sale.

Challenge Reminder: For this challenge, I want you guys to have a bit of fun, so you will be designing outfits inspired by...plastic surgery. OO I will give you your surgery, and you will design an outfit that best reflects your personal style inspired by that surgery.
