Mission Catwalk Season 6--- Episode 2 & 3 RECAP

Tuesday, October 9, 2018

In Episode 2 of Mission Catwalk, the Designers were given their first official challenge -- "Design a garment inspired by eyewear chosen by the celebrity team lead which can be menswear or womenswear and must reflect the design aesthetic of the design house". They had to draw inspiration from their celebrity team lead persona and they had a budget of JMD$2,000 for fabric and a trimming budget of JMD$500 and 8 hours to complete "the mission".



Team Quite Perry got a pair of copper and black glasses with an electric yellow on the sides of the frame. Rochele decided to go with something "clean and structured". Melissa Moses expressed that she loved the glasses and "dem shot" [really cool] and opted for a 3d garment based off Perry --  while Soshorna chose a soft grey fabric which she created symmetrical shapes that she explained will stand out "just like Perry". Stephen instantly thought of an "all-white chic look" with modern details, incorporating some thread work to pull back the black from the glasses without it being too literal.



Team ZJ Sparks got a Blue Pair of glasses and Collette opted for a mixture of a floral print incorporating the outfit she was wearing mixed with gold fabric and Kejuana opted for a white cotton foil fabric with denim pinstripe and Moses went for an all blue fabric to go with the glasses. Tonii aka "spicey" drew inspiration from beachwear with a flowy one-sided dress with a cropped top and opted for a beautiful blue chiffon fabric and a cobalt blue fabric with a leaf print in the fabric.



Team D'Angel got a beautiful electrifying "highlighter" yellow, structured pair of glasses mixed with black. Daniel Dinall went with convenience for his choice based on the budget and went with a black and white dress. Cassandra went with a short cocktail dress with 3d rose petals as she wanted to showcase D'Angels legs which she states is her best feature. Renee who is not familiar with Dancehall culture went with something simple and classic but had sexy cut-outs. Mercy-Ann chose to make a shorts and a top. 

Celebrity Hair Stylist and Designer, Lisa McIntosh served as guest judge. In the end, Stephen was named as the winner of the challenge with the strongest design and 2 designers went home Tonii and Moses.


In Episode 3, the Designers were thrown out of their comfort zone and was given the challenge to create an Avant Garde design using recycled material to highlight the current environmental issue we face in Jamaica with garbage pollution. 



The designers had a budget of JMD $2,000 for fabric from Pablos and 10 hours to complete the mission.

They were encouraged to get as creative as possible while creating wearable art for their celebrity team lead.

Rochele decided to choose a cheap fabric with hopes that her design will make it look "not as cheap as it actually is" and would use the styrofoam to make the design look "clean". Soshorna dubbed as the "DIY" Queen and lover of art used cardboard as the base of her design while Mercy-Ann created a dress from garbage bags. Kejuana decided to use garbage bags as her base and styrofoam plates on top. Stephen from team Quite Perry created a cape blazer and newspaper pants by using styrofoam cups 
and garbage bags.




There were some really interesting and unique pieces-- and there were some that bordered "school craft project gone wrong". Popular Media Personality and Youth Advocate, Empress Golding served as the guest judge and she looked amazing in a beautiful African print dress. 




The strongest designer on this challenge was Kejuana while Daniel received the lowest score and was sent home. We kinda sympathize with Daniel who decided to follow the mentor's critique and started over from scratch to create a new dress instead of going with his intuition. 

With 3 exciting episodes already aired, we are anticipating the upcoming episode.
