Thanks in part to Pacific Rim, we are all about Japanese style influences around here lately. On last night’s episode of Project Runway, designers had to create a look that embodied some of the words people used to describe a brand of fro-yo (yeah it was blatant product placement) and the looks had to be created from materials won from games at a Coney Island fair. Sounds easy enough, right? At least they didn’t have to make a dress out of candy.
What absolutely caught our eye was the adorable look made by the designer team of Alexandria von Bromssen and Dom Streater. A blue street-wear Domo look? With a bonus scale fabric looking skirt to go beneath it? No seriously: can you get any more adorable Japanese street style than that? Plus, their styling was spot on!
The outfit landed in the Top Two but didn’t win this week even though all the judges seemed to love how cute and fun it was!
