Just a thought, but here in the UK we have a Royal Wedding on 29th April. This has got me thinking about national outfits (see Margueritedesign's patriotic bloomers in the Colette Patterns week!)... so my suggestion is:
inspiration from our own nationality, or, if preferred, a specific nationality (eg. French, Mexican, etc etc)....
I like the Royal Wedding one too.
Maybe an outfit for a wedding? :) Or wedding hats LOL
When Charles and Diana married, everyone here in the States kept asking me what was 'with the hats'? My response was "what do you mean? You wear hats to weddings..."
So many cool ideas in this thread!!
I was thinking an Alexander Mcqueen week - he was such a genius and his garments were/are completely out of this world.
I really like the national dress idea but us Aussies would surely need a free pass to do whichever country we like because we don't really have a strong cultural identity beyond being multicultural ;-)
Also - what about Couture week - where we could try out a new couture technique.
Or Embellishment week - where the focus is on adding that little extra pizazz ;-)
heh, I just added my challenge idea of embellishment, and I just now read that you have the same idea.
I like your couture week idea, too.
