Desiree Hedrick: Unconventional Material Challenge

Desiree Hedrick: Unconventional Material Challenge Desiree Hedrick What inspired your look for the Unconventional Materials Challenge? My paper garment was inspired by the 90s, and the Fresh Prince TV character, “Aunt Viv.” This look embodies power, elegance, and grace which is exactly what comes to mind when I think of “Aunt Viv.” I used duct tape to create the striped print, and for structure, I created the boxy cape that’s connected with a hand painted gold chain. The flare at the bottom of the cape was box pleated and faced with duct tape for strength. Paired with this [...]

Desiree Hedrick: Collection Inspiration

Desiree Hedrick Desiree Hedrick: Collection Inspiration Describe what inspired the look for your collection: At our first Rock the Runway meeting, each designer had to randomly select a decade between the 1940s and the 2000s to be the theme for their collection. Even though I felt like I was on Project Runway, I was still very nervous about selecting my decade!  Luckily, I selected the 90s which was full of life, color, and excitement. I started by researching prominent trends, styles, colors, and silhouettes from the 90s. Then, I narrowed down the colors, silhouettes, and design details I [...]
