AMNW Design Challenge: Double The Fun Winner
Once again the four talented designers from The Art Institute of Portland brought their creations before the judges. This week’s judges were Pati Palmer, sewing icon from Palmer/Pletsch Publishing; Eden Dawn, Fashion editor of Portland Monthly Magazine; Jonny Shultz, fashion director of Q6 Modeling & Artist Management; and Elisha Pipin, a Pacific Northwest designer and fashion educator and founder of Pep Style Designers. The designers task was to create two childrens coordinating outfits using Butterick patterns and Moda fabrics.
The first contestant was Lindsay Chapel. Lindsay went with pretty princess dresses. She hand dyed the fabrics and added silver stars for that extra zest.
Next up was Natalya Hebert who showcased her Rock-a-Billy look in a sleeveless dress and added a pant and shirt ensemble to go with the look. She featured Moda’s scissor fabric in a 50’s style.
Germaine Barnard came up with a day and night combo that featured a little red cape over an adorable plaid jumper, perfect for school. Her second outfit was a floral party dress that could be combined with the cape for an evening out.
Amy Sim and her model brought forth her nautical inspired designs. She decided on a dress, and a coordinating shirt and shorts outfit. The model wore a headband made from the rose trim featured on both designs.
This week the judges had a difficult time choosing a winner and the scores were very close. But in the end the winner of the second AMNW Design Challenge was...
Congratulations once again Amy!
Before leaving the studio the contestants were given their new challenge for the up-coming week: A Work Wear Challenge, using Telio fabrics.
Good Luck Ladies
