Mirandarose Mirandarose writes: I too wondered about some of the questions people posted but right above the comments section there are the links to the full guidelines and rules. Although it is a summer contest, i am basing my vote on the criteria which is making a garment inspired by a designer. There are links to other pictures and the story behind each garment, so that helps.

Sophia2012 Sophia2012 writes: These are lovely. It is nice to see when the entries have their creations on a live model; it is difficult to really see the fit unless someone is wearing it.
nonetheless, I think these five are really worthy of the challenge (which was to have been inspired by a designer) and I can tell that all of them fit that criteria!
Well done!
