Congratulations, Irina

This week your dress just stood out for all the right reasons. It was well-crafted, complex and yet just moved like a dream on the runway. Having chosen to create that pattern yourself meant that you had more stitching than any of your peers and selecting a sheer fabric meant French seams had to be used = twice the effort; in less-capable hands this could have been a disaster of time-management and execution. Instead Michael Kors and Zanna Roberts both commented on how this dress would be eye-catching on a rack and Heidi Klum said that she would wear it while calling it flirty and feminine. You rocked it, Irina!

This post is only for positive words for Irina Shabayeva.If you have negative commentary or something to say about another designer, you may do so in our Reactions post here.
