When a basic concept — like casual streetwear — mashes up with high-fashion style, it's total genius. And that's exactly what we saw this week on Bravo's Project Runway. Steal a hit of inspo and upgrade your own street-savvy creations with these inventive ideas.
Brag on Your Brand
Multiple designers were all about incorporating logos into their designs, whether machine embroidered or hand painted on fabric. Practice your brush lettering skills if you're into the freehand painted effect, or jump to the machine to stitch up a signature look.
Nail a Cool Corset
One of the top styles showcased a corset in a unique, hip way. Don't shy away from weaving the structured garment into your own funky design.
Work With High-End Fabric
The fastest way to make a look feel super luxe: use top-of-the-line materials. These fabrics can be tricky to master, but they'll make your designs look ready for the runway — not the clearance rack.
Let's Sharpen Your Skills!
On every episode of Bravo’s Project Runway, you can bet a designer will struggle with something creatively. If only they had Bluprint on the brain! Each week, we’ll highlight a few of our favorite mishaps (been there!) — and share easy ways to fix them.
One judge was crystal-clear: streetwear needs pockets. Not only are they functional, but if done right, they bump up the style cred of any garment. Nail yours with this designing class that details the process from start to finish.
Finish Seams and Hems
With the designers under a tight deadline, it's no wonder details like hems and seams go unfinished. But with more time on your hands, you can make those final touches shine. These couture-inspired techniques elevate simple outfits to standout attire.
