The Oak Park Mall Designer Challenge: Week 1

Hey y’all!!!  


I have some exciting news! If you don’t already know, I have been accepted to compete in this years Oak Park Mall designers Challenge!!! (Eeeeekkkk!) I am one of 5 designers to be competing! 

Each week, for four weeks, I will be given a design challenge. I will have to create a look with either what a sponsored store gives me or from scratch!  

We turn in our looks every Thursday and we are judged by the Kansas City Fashion Council and The people (YOU). The winner walks away with a prize each week and a grand prize of $1000 along with media coverage!!  


Week One

This week we were given our first challenge! We had to select a box of unknown content 😬😬😬😬! In those boxes were one music genre to pull inspiration from and an outfit sponsored by the Buckle, along with a $50 gift card! I was selected to create a look from Rock! 


I was quite nervous at first! I personally do not listen to rock on a regular basis so I didn’t know what to do! Thankfully, I looked up some popular artist, designers, and photos to get the pinning started!!  

Within this short week I was able to create a look that I think represents the Rock culture well! I hope you agree!
