are any of you project runway fans?
a couple episodes ago (the stilts one), one of the judges made the comment to anthony ryan that they felt like they had 'seen' his design before and that he needed to make sure his designs were unique.
hmm. this gave me some serious thinking material. really? is there really anything that is completely unique? i mean, fashion has been around for an awful long time. . . how many truly unique styles could there still be out there?
but it also made me realize that i am more of a 'copycat artist' than an actual designer. my ideas come from other places. sometimes more than one idea mixed with another. . . but really i don't have much that is 'original.'
and maybe that is okay. maybe that is how everyone starts.
okay, but back to sewing. last spring my very fashionable sister emailed me this picture:
she asked if i could possibly re-create it, as it was no longer available in stores.
i always see this as kind of a challenge-- to actually make something that is wearable, doesn't fall apart immediately and looks decent.
here is how it turned out:
(and NO, that is NOT a baby bump-- it is an 'i don't eat like i should' bump)
so, what do you think? do you think there is a career out there for me as a 'copycat artist'?
