Project Runway: Season 8: Episode 5 - There is an "I" in Team

Concepts and Textiles
Project Runway Challenge: In this episode, the designers split into 2 teams (Team Military/Lace and Team Luxe) and each team designed a six piece collection for Fall 2010.
The EtsyMetal Challenge Translation: Create a piece choosing a concept and a textile from the same list the PR contestants had to chose from (the textile can be literal or implied):
Concepts: minimalist, 50's retro & lady-like shapes, menswear for women, military,
Textiles: gold or other metalics, camel, leopard or cheetah prints, plaid, lace

I choose Military (concept) + Leopard (textile). My husband is in the Air Force, and I love playing with his dog tags. Choosing the military concept for this challenge hit very close to home for me.
Brass military dog tags, hand-drawn leopard print etching, silver ball chain.

i went with retro and plaid
copper discs with lots 'o torch fired enamel

i just found Project Runway Seasons 1-9 DVD is mainly about Heidi Klum hosts a reality series where aspiring fashion designers compete for a chance to break into the industry. You can watch the perfect show in each season.
