Episode 11 of Project Runway, Season 9 featured the challenge to design a garment inspired by one of three live birds, a white crested cockatoo, a green amazon parrot and a jet black raven. The winning design was inspired by the raven, but this week, we could use any of the birds to inspire our accessory to embellish the runway. I selected lovely cockatoo because I remembered the large spoon shaped beads I had which, to me, resemble the crest feathers of the parrot. I myself have four small parrots, so this episode was really fascinating. I agree with the judges with their selection of Anya's raven inspired design as the winner, but a close runner up in my mind was Viktor's flowing white feathery gown.
