Cat's guessing she could make a giant ball of nothingness. Yes, she's pretty sure she would have melted down on the runway if she'd had to compete in last night's 5 Minute Fashion Challenge that kicked off the Tamarac Square Fashion Project.
Before a crowded house, a ton of flashing cameras, god and everyone, the twelve competing designers had just five minutes to pin, push and prod the fabric into something that would wow the judges (Cat included).
To the right are a few of the looks — but you'll have to go watch the slideshow here to see who won!
