Sew much drama!
WHEN BARBADIAN KERIN SCOTT got voted off and then returned to Mission Catwalk, that wasn’t as big as the stir being caused by Belizean Rebecca Stirm, who has won three challenges so far.
Caribbean fashion reality series Mission Catwalk is on its sixth episode and Stirm – the only contestant to win more than one challenge since the start of the second season on March 27 – has copped her third win with a dress designed around the red HIV/AIDS awareness ribbon.
In Rebecca’s design, the ribbon framed a high neckline and continued down the back of the dress, forming a dramatic scoop and crossing at the lower back. She found the perfect grey jacquard fabric with a subtle print in the upholstery section at Pablo’s, and complemented it with a red underskirt that balanced the piece.
The next best design came from Janel Jolly, followed by fellow Jamaican Gregory Williams who was last week’s winner. Trinidad’s Ryan Chan, who consistently ranked in the Top 4 where he was safe until Episode 5, found himself in the bottom three.
Last week’s runner-up Ryan Berkeley (of Guyana) landed in the bottom lot for the second time. Jamaican Natalie Rochester ranked in the lowest scores for a third time and this week became the latest casualty of the show.
In a dramatic turn of events, Trinidadian Shannon Kwong quit the series and asked Kerin Scott of Barbados to be her replacement. What a lucky break for Kerin who was eliminated last week!
The other two Barbadian designers, Kesia Estwick and Janelle Forde, are still designing factors.
