Colour of Couture 2nd Runway Challenge! (Inspired by Thom Browne’s Spring Collection)



What is up my loveliiiiiiiies??  As most of you know, I have the great honor of competing this year in the Colour of Couture Top Model Competition.  It has been my most challenging endeavor to date in my Second Life and the stakes are getting higher!  Our second Runway Challenge for the 2014 Colour of Couture Top Model Competition was to style a look inspired by the Thom Browne Spring 2014 collection.

In what was considered possibly “the creepiest” show from NY Fashion Week yet, Browne’s RL designs were displayed on a runway as cold and sterile as a mental hospital complete with surreal “nurses” and “mental patients”. Browne mixed this macabre ambience with a one of a kind blend of Baroque (all white, ruffled collars, exaggerated shoulders) with an almost 1940’s sensibility (bobby socks, snoods, pencil skirts). These elements combined with Browne’s idea of putting a “clown” on the runway (he had never seen one in real life), inspired one of the most talked about collections of the season.


While styling my interpretation of this collection, I focused on the themes of Baroque, tones of white, and the idea of being caged and somewhat deranged.  All 14 contestants excelled at this styling and it was a show to remember!

This outfit consists entirely of items from my beloved .SHI by Joy Lapperiere.  I felt this look belonged in “Dune”.  I thank my friend and fashion photographer Chii Kimagawa for helping to create this apocalyptic feel.
