Project Runway Threads: Episode 6, Katie Look 1 (Winner)
This young fashionista started sewing at the age of five and continued her design dreams by attending fashion camps and sewing everything from a stylish mermaid tail to tailored garments. Now at 11, Katie has perfected her hand stitch, back stitch, sewing machine and pattern making. Katie likes the juxtaposition of Coco Chanel’s elegance with Gwen Stefani’s punk, so it’s no surprise her favorite designers are Chanel, Forever 21 Girls, Harajuku Mini and Abercrombie.
Katie’s first look was inspired by clowns and demons. She designed a strapless dress with a rounded neckline, then added some seriously edgy twists. The result is a fashion masterpiece for such a young designer!
