Project Runway Recap: 3 Ways We're Upgrading Streetwear After This Week's Show on Bravo

Actions

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.

Explore the built-in fonts that come with your machine's software as you try your hand at modifying font size and density. You'll love the ease with which you can change the look of your projects with simple clicks of a button, as well as Terri's helpful tips for testing your designs. Next, you'll learn simple techniques for expanding your monogram, even if you only have a 4" x 4" hoop, and great tips on how to hoop and stitch your fabric exactly where you want your monograms to go.

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.

Meet Alison Smith, MBE, founder of the School of Sewing, author and pattern designer. In Alison's expert hands, you'll learn about the structure of a modern Victorian-style corset, the fabrics and patterns to use, and how to adjust your pattern for a full bust.

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.

Meet Kenneth King, fashion designer, author, and teacher at New York’s Fashion Institute of Technology. He’ll start class by tackling velvet and sharing cutting, marking, interlining and pressing tips, followed by techniques for perfect stitching.
Mimi G and Norris Dánta Ford star in this week's episode of RUNWAY REMAKE, our exclusive digital series that takes its cues from Bravo's Project Runway challenges. Tune in to see how they take classic denim jackets and give them a high-fashion twist!

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.

Master Pockets

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.
