|Austin’s Fiber Optic Dress|
The only look I absolutely 100% loved was Austin’s. His mindset of, “it doesn’t have to be neon and futuristic” are some of the same thoughts I had. Not that I don’t like some of the other designs, but Austin’s was just gorgeous and so romantic. I wish we could have him do this challenge again, but with more time to really develop and complete this look how he would like, you know with more than two days to work on it, and see what he comes up with. I’m sure it would be awesome!
|Jerell’s fiber optic dress|
Oh Jerell … I’m sad he is gone! He was so true to his design aesthetic and that’s so uncommon, I think, in these shows. He really has his own points of view and really stands by his work, and I appreciate that. I’m glad he used the fiber optics though in his look though, they were so pretty coming down the runway! They did create a lot of lovely shapes when they moved. I think if he would have ditched the long grandma skirt (Obviously!) and went with maybe more of a ballerina style tutu look and really emphasized those lights, he could have created something fabulous! It’s still a cool design though!
