Well hello to all the fashionistas and gents of dA! This might not be an original idea, but I know I've been wanting to do it for ever, so here it is. Let's challenge eachother - I'm sure we'll all improve as designers and illustrators and it'll be a nice journey. There are currently almost 100 challenges to date at the time of writing this blog - so we have a lot of work to do!
