Project Selvedge Design Competition Challenge #3
This week we were assigned Cigarette Girls for a fun and vintage inspired challenge. Taking inspiration from the 50’s, designers were asked to make a garment that embraces the traditional meaning of burlesque. The garment needs to be theatrical and have a sense of humor. Unlike their usual show, this time the Cig girls will be showing for a family friendly crowd. The garments will represent the individual personalities of each Cig Girl. They had their pick of bargain basement cottons totaling 10 yards, which is a lot!
