Project Runway: Season 8: Episode 2: "Larger than Life"

Episode 2: "Larger than Life"

Air: 8.5.10
My Lifetime, Thursdays, 9pm PST.

The Project Runway Challenge: The designers were asked to create a look that defines the Marie Claire woman. The winning look will be featured on a "billboard" in Times Square.
EtsyMetal Translation: for this challenge we made mini billboards, we all were asked to use a base of 1 x 2" inches of any material and to then build the piece on or around this rectangle shape!

Episode 2:
"Larger than Life!"

Andrea says, "My piece is made from sterling,copper and tin from a Cafe Du Monde coffee can. This one threw me for a bit and I didn't actually come up with my idea until the last possible minute!"

Stacey says, " i thought this would be a perfect opportunity to add some text to my work, especially since the challenge revolved around billboards. i knew i wanted a quote related to hope, but i did not want some overly long or nauseating. i felt like this was the perfect quote for my flower related pieces. the accents are monochromatic featuring two blue/gray sapphires and one blue topaz. i am really pleased with this piece and would love to explore more text with my pieces. however, lack of silver will mean that future pieces are much smaller for a while."

NEXT weeks Episode 3:
"It's a Party!"

*see My Lifetime Project Runway Episode 3 VIDEO here.
The Project Runway Challenge: In this episode, the challenge was to design an outfit using party store supplies.
