BPR Love for Kelli Martin

You were selected to be a team leader by Brooke Shields because she liked the potential of your concept; she enjoyed the potential play on words of 'Lipstick Jungle' and her character wearing a hint of leopard. You took the judge's advice and toned down the amount of animal print and tried to remain true to your vision, the one that Brooke chose. Your execution was always impeccable, most notably in the first challenge in which you won and wowed the audience, Michael Kors and even Nina Garcia. Your designs had ingenuity, complexity and a definite edgier point-of-view. We admired how you defended your position on the runway - you indeed had never found yourself before in the bottom pack - and how you agonized over not selecting your friend, Stella, as your teammate in this episode. You were always fun to watch and you sure wore great hats in addition to creating outstanding designs. We wish you the best with your own line and know this is yet another stop for you on the road to brand recognition.

This post is only for positive words for Kelli Martin or her designs. If you have something to say about another designer or this challenge, please post it in our 'Reactions' post here.
