Project Runway Canada 2 – gift for a finalist
Last night I went to watch the finale of Project Runway Canada 2 with finalist and fashion school friend Jessica Biffi. Coincidence – it was also her birthday party! As a little gift I made her a special runway postcard with an illustration of one of my favourite designs from the show – Jessica’s dress for Elisha Cuthbert from Episode 2.
Jessica didn’t win the game but her collection was stellar, all the more amazing for being a first collection. Remembering how over-the-top her grad capsule collection was, it was incredible to see her grow as a designer on Project Runway Canada. It made me so proud to see her execute sweet cocktail dresses, sassy little jumpers, and sexy gowns.
Last night she was so happy, surrounded by fans and friends, and I know she will find a place for herself in fashion. Excited to see what she will do next now that she is outside of the thunderdome!
