Michele’s final collection Bella Roma was a bright mish mash of Italian influences and study abroad memories. Michele’s work throughout the competition has been strong, and her ability to draw us into her world to understand her influences and design process has left us with a finer appreciation of each design.
Michele will be at Quilt Market in Houston on October 27th-29th to showcase her designs.
Michele was also the winner of the Reader’s Choice Award. Congratulations! Many thanks to all the fans who voted for the REPEAT designers.
- Nice job of synthesizing influences/inspirations yet turning out a collection that seems fresh, spirited, fun and full of life. Feels very contemporary yet has references to printed fabric traditions. The collection coordinates well, both within and across colorways, which is a major plus, giving these more flexibility than one usually finds. Scale relationships are excellent.
- Your conceptual approach is good to see and will serve you well as you develop future designs.
- You have an enormous amount of talent and I can’t wait to see what you do with your design career.
Michele wasn’t the only the designer who shared an amazing collection with us. Both Jessica and Krissy wowed us with their hard work, dedication, and final product. We can’t wait to see what’s next for all the lively ladies who participated in REPEAT.
We’ll have some summary posts over the next few days, and we are in the process of planning what’s next for The Printed Bolt…
