Project Selvedge Design Competition Challenge #6

By Kaitlin Vervoort

The Challenge:

This challenge kicks off and celebrates Missoula's First Annual Fashion Week. Each of our 3 remaining designers were asked to design a garment for a local boutique assigned to them by the judges. The designers were challenged to think about this garment as part of their own private line as well as a reflection of the aesthetic of the boutique and their customers. The participating boutiques were Greenlight, One Eleven, and Cloth and Crown.
The Budget: Each designer will be limited to $35 at Selvedge Studio
The judges: Aimee, Matty Hancock (our guest judge), Carly, and Mary
Joanna, with her model sporting a garment from "The Runnaway" line for Cloth and Crown, is this week's winner!
