Ready Steady Cut - Project Runway style!

Hi everyone!
I wanted to talk to you guys about this completely insane two-days 'challenge' called Ready Steady Cut, which was a two days workshop I had as part of my course. We were divided in groups and were given a designer each - my group got Riccardo Tisci for Givenchy! I was so happy about it because he's definitely one of my favourite designers - his aesthetic is one of the most interesting out there at the moment, and the quality of his work is impeccable.
So we were given a picture of a garment from one of the designer's previous collections, and we had to make an inspiration board, illustrations and technical drawing and remake the whole outfit from scratch (to look as similar to the real garment as possible).

To obtain the feathers effect on the bottom of the dress, we thought of using some organza and layer it up, then stitch it on one of the long sides and slash through vertically (without cutting completely), giving it a fringy effect. All the layers of organza and net will afterwards look like feathers.

For the cranes on the bottom, we put a layer of felt in between each layer of main fabric, to give them the slightly quilted look they have on the original dress.

So what do you guys think about this project??
Let me know in a comment :)
