This post is our first challenge for Project Runway season 12.
Just to let you know that this challenge is open to everyone !
If you like to take part in the Project Runway challenges please read our guidelines at the end of this post.
Project runway Season 12 Week 1: “Sky's the Limit”
The Unconventional Materials Challenge.
Due date: Thursday, August 1st 2013 (midnight your time).
Skydivers parachuted the designer's materials to them, at an airport, right next to the runways. The designers were asked to use the parachute fabric to construct a garment showing their unique design sense and personality.
For our version in metal, we will use a somewhat unconventional material also related to aviation- Aluminum. Find some aluminum in your home or garage, a piece that was already used for another industry (maybe a pop can, part of a bike, part of a car? you get the idea ) and use it to construct a piece of jewelry that exhibits your own unique design personality. You may use other metals and materials, but the found aluminum should be the prominent design element of your piece. Tell us what your aluminum was in its former life and how you transformed it into a piece of jewelry that reflects your own distinct design personality.
