I hope you all got to check out Project Accessory Season 1 Episode 2 “Sole Searching” with that extra hour of time we got this weekend! If not you can watch the entire episode for free on the Lifetime site.
All I can say: Oh man, what I wouldn’t give to have unlimited access to that Swarovski Elements wall.
Here is a quick recap of the episode:
The designers got to visit the Swarovski Crystallized Concept Store. They got to pick ANYTHING in the store they wanted, and used it as an inspirational piece for the challenge. The infamous little black dress was the look their models would be wearing with the inspirational piece from Swarovski. The catch? The designers had to make an additional piece of jewelry……AND a pair of shoes that all are inspired by that piece they choose from the Swarovski Crystallized Concept Store. In case they didn’t have enough going on, the guest judge for this challenge was Nadja Swarovski, heiress to the Swarovski multi-billion dollar company. No pressure. None. At. All.
I give the contestants credit, I have no idea how to do half the things they are all versed (or at least attempting to do) in. They came up with some great creations. Here’s some of my favorites:
My favorite shoe was made from Brian:
I just LOVE the black and rhinestone cuff made by Nicolina. I think her inspirational piece from the Swarovski Crystallized Concept Store was also my favorite of them all.
I don’t know that I loved the entire look that David made, but I think the jewelry he made (and the Swarovski necklace!) is stunning! I’d wear them without a doubt.
Did you have any favorites? Do you even LIKE the show? For me it’s still a bit too early to tell, but a will say this, anything that Swarovski is providing the materials to, I’m probably not going to hate!
You’ll have to tell me your predictions on who’s going to win!
