(Beginning of Challenge) Model Call:
1. Ambola
2. Ana
3. Hollie
4. Devika
5. Alyssa

This time we asked you to
design a fun party dress for your model. But you also had to design it accordingly so that it fit into my current collection! The winner of Project Designer will receive the title of The Next Big DeviantART Designer along with melancholycreations, lashanthao, ladylucrezia, and ceazar. You will receive two interviews with top fashion websites, a mentorship from moi ^^ lol, and their final ten piece collections redone by none other than George Nelson (wakasashe-fashion).

linzwinz Utterly on point. Wow and double-wow. linz is very successful when she is given a lot of color! You know, one of us really wanted to see a more minimal dress in my collection, just having the details show off the silhouette. Innovative, the seaming and the patterns running down the dress are fabulous. It's really a fun, almost space-age, futuristic dress, which is very Lindsey. the shape of the dress and the small touches really bring into my collection though. The hill design in a small cutout is an interesting touch as is the faux belt under the bustline. The pompoms are amazing and NOT arbitrary, the belt is great, the fur could've been executed better but that's fine. Great utilization of the hill design.

da-coppa-one We're not really super impressed with this. This was a little too much... The stockings are fantastic, and the dress paired with the green bag that I have already presented in my collection is fun. It's not overly sexy, it looks like a GREAT fit, it definately looks rich. We understand what she was trying to do with the dress itself, but it looks awkward. the top looks very low cut, and the front panel just looks like it's just tucked into the front and the skirt is loose and unflattering... we feel like it should have been a bit more fitted. The color and small details fit really well into my collection.

lrenah renah's look had me on the fence.
We're not sure how much tiering is in my collection, but the dress is still fabulous, the coloration is great and the use of the hill design is great. renah really melded her playful, flirty, sexy design with my Goldigger collection VERY well! This is sexy and we'd be fine with this being in my collection. It's kind of simple and safe for the last challenge, but there's nothing wrong with it, really.

OUT: MisterSnapple Though this dress has all of mistersnapple's personal style, there are very few things that We see that connect this to my collection. The buttons, double breast, bangles, signature detailing and poofy sleeves are very lovely touches to a, well, sort of plain dress. The hills are nice of course... but I think it's just not enough to continue on. The idea is there, but it needed to be pushed quite a bit more. The jacket is interesting, but attaches to the dress? We imagine that would not be very functional at all. It also looks like it's just part of the dress. The dress itself is a very simple silhouette, and not well rendered on the model. It looks as though it will just slip off at any moment!!! And the model does not look like a golddigger. As a mistersnapple design, it's a lovely, expected dress. But when it tries to merge with my collection? It won't work.

OUT: Kashirohato This is kind of a big mess. We really don't have much to say or add as far as a critique goes. It's messy and kind of poorly thought out. The colors work, but the details on the dress are really unflattering...The shape and cut of the dress is lovely, but the details just look messy. She looks a bit like she's wearing a bell-boy outfit with the pill-box hat. But I'm learning about Kash, as I am about each of the designers, and she finds it difficult, if not impossible, to leave well enough alone. Kashirohato, restraint!

Look a George's website tommorow for the winner.
