Rebecca Stirm continues to sew her way into Catwalk history

Rebecca Stirm has been creating a storm with her designs on Caribbean fashion design reality series, ‘Mission Cat Walk Season Two’. The eighteen year old Belizean won her fourth challenge in episode nine of the show. The remaining seven contestants were tasked to design a gown for a charity gala and a second garment for a charity luncheon inspired by an animal from the Hope Zoo. Stirm decided to do the turtle because it was “an unusual and unique animal that people didn’t already have preconceptions about what a turtle- inspired garment should look like.” Using a kaleidoscope patterned fabric similar to the pattern on a turtle’s shell; Rebecca created a gown with a dramatic neckline while using layers of different fabrics in circular cutouts to build a skirt that would imitate a turtle’s shell while still allowing movement. For her second outfit the kaleidoscope fabric was used for the blouse and the outfit was completed with a beige colored pencil skirt. Winning the challenge earned Stirm a feature in Style Observer as well as five hundred and eighty three U.S dollars. From week to week, Rebecca has been one of the top contenders and has so far won episodes, two, four, six and nine, making her the designer with the most wins in the competition. The show which features five Caribbean countries now continues with six contestants. The show airs on Channel Five every Tuesday at eight p.m.

    anybody find the name familiar? as in stirm, the pastor happily leading the charge against homosexuality in belize? it’s so funny… his daughter is beating the gays in fashion design while he watches and probably damns them to hell. you think anybody’s mentioned that fact to the blatantly gay contestants yet? it’d be fun to see what they think.

    Blizean to the bone. Do they make them in extra large? If they do i no think you will look good in them. Remember “if it zip no mean it fit.

    I agree, why can’t we be proud of our Belizean talent. Doing something positive for the country is always good. With all the senseless crime and no one considering of vacationing in Belize, this is an excellent opportunity to show the world at large that we have educated, talented and creative minds. Kudos to Ms, Stirm.
