Challenge #9 was to create something for someone close to you. My mother died when I was little but if she was here today I think this is something she would wear. She would at last like that I made it for her and she would be really proud of me!
Challenge #11 was the Lexus challenge and the designers were asked to use unconventional materials. I have a black topless dress with wire down both sides and a oversized wire cover over the top with red, yellow and orange ribbons weaved into the shoulders and across the back.
