Congratulations, Jay

How does one transform the fabric of bumpkins and rubes and make it into a garment worthy of a fashion industry event? One would think it would require magic but not in your creative hands. You saw not the coarse nature of the cloth but the possibility to replicate 'feathers' when frayed. No smoke and mirrors were involved but as Lauren Hutton observed you managed to make burlap look expensive and light. The fitted bodice coupled with the flirty, ethereal froth of the skirt was noted by Heidi to be perfectly appropriate as a cocktail dress. This feminine look bewitched the judges and your client obviously was enchanted with level of sophistication you infused in this frock. Applause to Jay!
