Project Runway Season 10, Episode 9 - It's All About Me

Season 10, Episode 9: It's All About Me
Air 9/13/12
The designers get to create their own fabric for their outfit inspired by their cultural heritage and get special home visits from their family.
For our Etsy Metal Translation:
Make a piece inspired by your cultural heritage.

“I grew up in Ohio in a traditional Greek Orthodox family. My grandparents lived with us and passed down many rituals and superstitions from 'pieces of the real cross' that my grandmother would give to her son for protection when he went to war to reading the mud left in the bottom of a cup of Turkish coffee.
We'd go to bed every night and hold our small wood and metal icons, do the sign of the cross, kiss them, and then go safely to sleep. I was always fascinated with the icons and when I got older I began to think about making modern icons from old photos of my family. I combine the photo with copper and enamel and stamp part of a story from my favorite book of Greek myths, "Lost Goddesses of Early Greece, a Collection of Pre-Hellenic Myths" by Charlene Spretnak.”
