Latex is a trend and celebrities of the stature of Chiara Ferragni or Kim Kardashian have already worn this fabric that is as risky as it is striking. The trainees of ‘Masters of Sewing’ will make a unique and exclusive garment with this material under the watchful eye of Alaska, who has defended that vinyl and latex are her second skin. In addition, they will receive advice from Joshua, winner of the latest edition of ‘Sewing Masters’, who will return to the workshop to inspire them.
The sewing machines will be moved to the Dehesa de los Canónigos, a historic winery where some of the best Ribera del Duero wines are produced with the Tierra de Sabor quality seal. There the teams will learn to transform cork into Haute Couture designs. The bark of the cork oak, from which this material is obtained, is a vegetable tissue, one hundred percent natural, renewable, biodegradable and very versatile.
The designer Jan Taminiau, the only one in the world who has dared to mold this material into Haute Couture garments, will show you how to achieve it. The challenge will be to reproduce Taminiau’s dress that actress Jena Malone wore in one of the ‘Hunger Games’ movies.
In the last duel of the night, they will immerse themselves in the daily work of the judges. Most fashion designers in their workshops face custom work adapting to different sizes. The model Lorena Durán and the designer Ynés Suelves, a finalist in the last edition of Who’s On Next, will make you aware of how modeling and sizes have changed in the world of fashion. To save themselves from expulsion, they will make a tailored garment that highlights the body of a model and enhances her beauty.
