A few weeks ago now I was watching the most recent season of Project Runway. I think that I haven't gotten that channel or something because I don't know why I haven't watched it before! Its so interesting - it shows alot of the background of what goes into designing clothing. I watched the first episode of this season of Project Runway Canada and it seemed to dwell alot more on the drama of the contestants. After seeing two people have to leave the show for "personal reasons" I gave up. But, the American Project Runway is alot more enjoyable.
My favorite designer from the show is Leanne M. She constructs clothes with such an architectural feel in her designs. Here's some pictures from flickr that I found that are inspiring.
Leanne describes her clothes in this way - " what I do is pretty much feminine, wearable, architectural, and innovative". Here are some pictures of some of her designs from the show. Enlarge and check these out - they're so beautiful! I would love to wear any of these!
I love how different forms of art - fine art, architecture, music, theatre - can be incorporated into fashion. Fashion is a reflection of these things. It makes me want to study these things more as well!
