Ryan Chan wins his first Mission Catwalk Challenge
It took ten tries, but T&T designer Ryan Chan can finally call himself a Mission Catwalk challenge winner. Episode ten of the Caribbean fashion reality series saw Chan and five other designers creating a prom dress for a high school girl—a test not only of their design skills but their ability to work with a client.
A statement from Jamaica’s publication firm AG Select Public Relations, quoted Chan as saying: “I made sure to ask my model what her favourite colour combination was. She, without hesitating, answered ‘pink and black’, also my two favourite colours! I created a pink dress with peau de soie fabric and used black accessories.
“I also kept her age in mind and, modernised the corsage by using a black rhinestone encrusted appliqué, which I thought gave her some attitude but yet kept it funky and fun—a punk rock princess!” Alvina Bryan was the lucky model who in addition to keeping her Ryan Chan design, won a $10,000 gift voucher. For him, this win is especially satisfying as he has been in the bottom spot for the last four episodes.
He did start the series on strong footing, having placed in the top-four ranking in episodes two to four. The statement said whether Chan maintains his winning stance remains to be seen as there is one more challenge before the battle of the top three at Caribbean Fashion Week which takes place at on June 8.
For now, the judges were pleased with what they saw. The release said Jamaica’s Janel Jolly was ranked as the lowest-scoring designer and she was eliminated. Though she was in the top-scoring designers on episodes one, two and six, she was safe throughout the series. Five designers now remain.
They are Crystal Powell and Gregory Williams of Jamaica, Kerin Scott of Barbados, Belize’s Rebecca Stirm and Chan. Mission Catwalk can also be on local stations in Barbados, Belize, Grenada, Guyana and Trinidad and Tobago.
