RS/WS Wool Challenge: You be the judge.
At the annual convention of the Professional Association of Custom Clothiers (PACC) in 2000, Threads teamed up with PACC and JoAnn Stores, Inc., to invite PACC members to participate in The RS/WS Wool Challenge. We asked participants to select a wool fabric with a different, interesting reverse side, and create a garment or ensemble featuring this reverse side in some distinctive way. The wool could be paired with another fabric but had to make up at least 75 percent of the garment. We also asked them to incorporate into the design a lively closure. The Threads editors blind-judged the entries and selected four winning garments—and the PACC audience made the Audience Choice selection.

well, has anybody else looked at this yet?
wow. these garments are amazing. surely i don't have to choose just ONE. i would love to wear Mary Beth Davis' soft, subtle 2-piece dress in blue/brown. on the other end of the spectrum, Leslie Haber's one-shoulder design is just incredible, my favorite i guess. i love the cuff on one arm. i wish i could see the triangular back; would you please turn around?? the effect is both futuristic and ancient at the same time. also, i can never resist chartreuse charmeuse--i love Terry Tipps fun and very wearable dress/coat.
this is a very impressive group of professional garments. kudos to each one of the designers.
if you haven't seen them yet, go check it out--i promise you'll be blowing up each photo to see the details.
