AMNW Design Challenge: Take It Out

The KATU Design Challenge is now in it’s fourth exciting week!

This morning Pati Palmer, of Palmer Pletsch Publishing, met with AMNW host Helen Raptis, to recap the results of last week’s “Take It To Work” contest, and to reveal the details of this week’s challenge. Last week’s challenge was to create a work wear ensemble using a McCall’s pattern and Telio fabrics. The talented designers, Gerry Barnard, Amy Sim, Natalya Hebert, and Lindsay Chapal from the Art Institute Of Portland, brought four distinctly different fashions to the contest.

Gerry’s design was a beautiful blouse and pant outfit. The pants were cut on the bias, which gave them a flared elegance. The top was a cotton lawn print with handmade ruffled trim.

Amy’s creation was a boucle dress and jacket that would go from a day at the office to an evening event.

Lindsay’s outfit was perfectly suited for a younger office associate. It featured stretch sateen animal print pants, with attached suspenders and paired with a textured knit top.

Natalya created a poly print blouse with a reversed shirttail over a magenta tank.

A pair of stretch sateen cropped pants finished off the look.

The winner of “Make It Work” was Gerry Barnard.

Congratulations Gerry!

This week’s challenge is called “Take It Out”. The designer’s will be creating a cocktail dress using Michael Miller fabrics, a Vogue pattern and have a budget of $125.00.

Michael Miller specializes in high quality cottons, and is always a trendsetter in the market place.

The next judging event is on Friday February 17th and should be spectacular! Kathy Miller of Michael Miller Fabrics will be this week’s guest judge. It will be interesting to hear what Kathy has to say about the fashions made from her fabrics.

Let’s Go Girls!
