This was the "real woman" challenge for the designers, and in this case the real women were Project Runway's "Super Fans." The winner was Helen Castillo. When I first saw the winning design, my heart sank. There's just nothing about a black dress (even if it's midnight blue) I find inspiring. I started to make one thing, and I was so Ho Hum about it, I couldn't work up any enthusiasm. After two crappy nights' sleep in a row I was frustrated and cranky. I sat down with my copy of "500 Bracelets," and BAM. The idea hit me.
