Glitter, sequins and fringe — oh my! It was all glitz and glamour this week on Bravo's Project Runway, as the designers created larger-than-life looks inspired by Sir Elton John. Now, we're busting out our own notions to make these beyond-fabulous projects.
One designer showed off a jaw-dropping denim on denim look. Sandwiched between all that blue? A fun, totally custom pop art tee. Learn how to screen print on fabric and you can whip up your own in no time.
Fringed chaps may not have gone over well with the judges, but we have a feeling this woven crossbody (or even this fashionably fringed cake !) would get a top score.
Who says sparkle's just for clothing? For those who believe everything should be a little extra, there's nothing better than a bright metallic cake. The cascading illusion on this showpiece adds extra drama that mimics the high-fashion gowns we've seen walk the runway.
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.
Sew Sequins Correctly
Constructing a look out of heavily beaded and embellished fabric can be intimidating if you don't have a lot of experience. But with these tricks of the trade , your design will rock the runway — not fall off it.
Clean Your Iron
One designer learned the hard way: If you don't clean your iron before using it, eventually one of your fabrics will fall victim to its gross residue. Make sure you know how to get the gunk off yours so you don't suffer the same fate.
