Week 2. The challenge= Make a garment using Threadless T-shirts.
We received our first ‘in the field’ challenge at 9am Tuesday morning live on SYWBAD.com. The challenge: A field trip to Threadless HQ to pick out five tee shirts per contestant tee-shirts to re-purpose into this week’s creation. Each contestant also received $150 for any extra materials they might need to bring our designs to life. We were all in the studio sewing, pinning, and plotting here at the studio creating throughout the day today.
You can watch us LIVE via Kenmore’s Facebook page and click the “Be a Designer” tab. You can even hear EVERYTHING we are talking about! All designs must be completed by high noon Thursday, at which point they will be tossed in the washing machine before the next webisode tapes at 7PM in the evening. [visit racked.com]
there was a nerve racking elimination round featuring Hey Champ Music, salon owner, Michael Anthony, and of course, Threadless. The judges for that show were Charlie Festa and Brianne Hattaway from Threadless who gave Michael Pazmino the second lowest score (combined with his online scores, landing him in last place 😦 I landed 1st place in the challenge =) Leaving, Tonya, LaTonya, Stephen, Anna and myself able to move onto the next round.
