bridal tsunami


When I had to remake that wedding dress in about 2.5 days, my apartment floor was completely covered in wave panels. I had to lay them all out and pin every one together and make sure every angle and spacing was exact. A huge task done in a short time all made possible by lots of coffee!

Hello Leanne! Your collection was just beautiful. I have to admit, you were my favorite designer on PR from the Olympic challenge...your designs and your workmanship are outstanding. Thank you for sharing your thought processes, etc, on this blog. I can't believe I am the first follower. (And this is the first blog I have ever followed. huh, how 'bout that.) :)

Eliza said...

Lanky, you are so right. How on earth did you keep track of all of those pieces, Leanne? 2.5 days? I can't even imagine.

I wonder if coffee has any long term side effects...

First of all I am so happy to find the blog of my favorite PR designer to date. WTG Leanne.

I love that you shared this with us. It's one thing to see you finished work, but to see the exacting work you put into it is just amazing.

Leanne I am so glad that you have a blog because this is a burning question of mine. Are you one of the designers who uses her models as a muse? Of course to some degree you have to take into account coloring and body type, but if you know who will be modeling something, to what degree does that affect your creative process? Do you think that you would have designed a different Nature or wedding dress if Karalyn was your model? Conversely, do you think that you would have designed a different Saturn or DVF dress if Tia was your model?

Also, have you had your DVF luncheon yet?

Hi Leanne,
I thought your wedding dress was gorgeous and you definitely deserved the win. It was interesting to watch you come into your own over the course of the show.
Best of luck to you in all you do.

Hi Leanne! I am such a big fan of your designs and all the gorgeous clothes you make! The wedding dress you made was absolutely stunning, and it was my favorite look ever created in Project Runway's history. I want to wear the dress to MY wedding :) Just wanted to say that you are a huge inspiration to many people out there and I wish you luck in everything you do!

it's me, Val said...

Hi Leanne! I was updating my "favorite sellers" at etsy and realized that you were one of my faves for a long while now. I didn't even put the connection together that you were on PR, and now that I do, I just wanted to say congratulations (!!) and how much I love your designs. My husband and I followed you and were rooting for you from early on. I'm not a clothing designer but a photographer with a background in design... I can truly appreciate your passion. Good luck in NYC and with all your endeavors. You deserve bunches and bunches of goodness :)

love and hugs
~ Val

Thanks for sharing your in-process photos. It's awesome to see how it's all put together. I honestly don't know how you sew your clothes so fast. I'd never be able to do a show like PR... I sew so slowly, and I don't like coffee.
