Congratulations, Kenley

Your inspiration was a tiled wall in Times Square that you interpreted as a pattern with lines demonstrating movement. You took many risks this week and you were rewarded: you used a vibrant print, you used close-fitting, puffed sleeves and you used a asymmetrical retro silhouette to show your point of view with a nod to your photograph. This could have been a disaster in less-than-skilled hands but your meticulous finishing coupled with a fresh take on tulle charmed and surprised the judges. This was not, as Tim feared, a costume but a chic, young look suitable for a night in the city that never sleeps. Well done, Kenley!
