Project Runway Season 7: Meet Amy Sarabi
Hometown: Plano, TX
What’s your favorite material or fabric to work with?
Alright, take away our bitch cards if you must, but we like her. She’s pretty fabulous, with a strong personal style and a sweet personality. Something tells us when the chips are down and she’s back against the wall and other cliches, that she’ll reach deep down inside herself and release her inner bitch. It’s all very Jedi in fashion, darlings.
Anyway, let’s look at her portfolio:
It’s interesting. Sort of a combination of professional polish coupled with fashion student innovation. That’s not a bad combination to have in this contest. Remember Ari Fish? That’s what happens when you have innovation, but no polish.
Clearly, the girl loves her techniques. As always with this show, it’s about marrying your design fallbacks to the expectations of the judges and the dictates of the challenge. If she can keep that level of polish to her work while at the same time giving the judges reason to say “How did you do that?” she’ll stay in the game a while.
