This week was one of my favorite challenges: An unconventional one.
Designers were packed on to a school bus and driven to an elementary school. There they raided the classroom for anything they could get their grubby little mitts on— rulers, mats, folders, jump ropes—you name it, they used it. And to impressive results. There is something about dealing with these obscure and unusual fabrics that makes designers think outside the box and get truly crazy creative.
However, because the only people we really see in unconventional clothing are celebs I decided to play a little game of Fantasy All Stars. Imagine your favorite stars trussed up in PRWAS classroom creations below!

Jeffery's design: Miley Cyrus
Fabric: Floor mats, folders, jump ropes
Cartoon couture for our Miley who isn't afraid to flash some ass! Grammys, anyone?
Irina's design: Katy Perry
Fabric: Construction paper, paper clips, pencil cases
Sweetheart neckline? Check. Bodice? Check. Impossible to wear color? Check. Full circle skirt? Check. Origami flowers? Check! Need I say anymore?
Viktor's design: Selena Gomez
Fabric: Rubber bands, rulers, thumb tacks
I would love to see the 21-year-old in something this fun and youthful. Plus, it would be a break from her more sophisticated dresses.
Christopher's design: Madonna
Fabric: Binders, toy magnets
A sexy Darth Vador vibe with a don't f--k with me attitude!
Elena's design: Rooney Mara
Fabric: Rulers, binders, protractors
Cool and sharp. Fake curves would work well on her straight up-and-down figure and she loves a bare midriff.
Seth's design: Lady Gaga
Fabric: Plastic folders, rulers, kickball
Perhaps a little tame for the meat-wearing Gaga but I think this futuristic flapper dress would be perfect for the singer. Plus, there's the rubber ball hat!
Korto's design: Paris Hilton
Fabric: Rubber bands, bean bags, rulers
Paris loves a micro mini halter ensemble!
Michael's design: Nicki Minaj
Fabic: Construction Paper, jump ropes
Clashing colors, cutouts, jagged edges, a little disheveled...perfect for Ms. Minaj.
