The second Project Runway Inspired Challenge,
named "Unconventional Wisdom,"
is to create a chic outfit using unconventional items from your home.
For the Unconventional Challenge on the program,
the designers were taken to a pet store,
given a budget of $300.00 and a day to create a fashion-forward outfit.
For these home challenges,
we are making modifications so that we can participate in a way
that works in our busy lives as working women, mommies, etc.
It's so amazing to see the unexpected creativity
and wonderful originality that the ladies come up with!
From a deck of cards...
...to this adorable outfit!
What a cutie pie!
This next outfit is made out of a screenprinted tote as a top,
a dish towel for a skirt,
a black beaded belt,
pink shoes, and a pink beaded bracelet:
putting the handle of the tote around the neck as a halter.
And I must have those dish towels, though I'm not sure I'd use them in the kitchen -
I'd definitely want to wear them too!
For my outfit, I used a propeller toy as a fascinator,
wire and ornaments for a necklace,
a skirt layered over a tank top with white crop pants and platform heels,
unrolled a wire kitchen scrubber for my arm,
and used another wire scrubber for a different hair piece.
I tried to figure out a way to make another hat out of plastic bowls.
Shhh, don't tell Tim Gunn...
I couldn't figure out a way to make this work.
Join us next week for a new challenge!!!
