Designed for Disaster - Carolyn Keene


Mystery Girls!

On Monday morning Mrs. Corwin, a River Heights Elementary School art teacher, said, I’m putting you in teams of three. You’re going to draw pictures of anything you think would be really cool for you and your friends to wear.

The girls cheered. The boys all just looked at one another.

I think you’ll be very excited about what I’m planning to do with your designs too, Mrs. Corwin added, but I need them all by Friday.

Nancy Drew turned to her two best friends, who were also her art-table partners, cousins Bess Marvin and George Fayne, and said, That’s what’s so great about our school. We get to do things like this.

Bess nodded. I know, she said. We have a cousin in Texas, and all he does in his art class is draw pictures of cactus plants.

Nancy laughed. Really? she said.

George giggled. Not really. But his art class is definitely not as cool as ours.

Why do we boys have to do this? Quincy Taylor asked Mrs. Corwin. "It’s a girl thing!"

No, it’s not, Deirdre Shannon said. One of my favorite designers is a man. I try to wear his clothes all the time. A lot of men are famous fashion designers, Quincy.

"And remember I said you can design anything you want to, Mrs. Corwin reminded them. That means sportswear like tracksuits, basketball uniforms, and swim trunks. Anything!"

Yeah, but what if some of the other guys in school find out about this and start making fun of us? Peter Patino said. "What are we going to do then?"

Oh, you guys, I can’t believe it, Mrs. Corwin said. She let out a big sigh. "I’ll tell you what. Instead of putting your real names on your designs, you may use a designer label. It should be something snappy that’ll catch a buyer’s attention, and it will be something only the team members and I will know. How’s that?"

The boys all looked at one another and shrugged. Okay, we’ll do it, they grumbled in unison.

"May we use both our names and a designer label? Nancy asked. We want a snappy label, but we also want people to know who we really are."

Oh, Nancy, that’s a super idea, several of the girls said.

Of course! Mrs. Corwin told them.

With the teams chosen, everyone talked for the next several minutes about their designer-label names.

I think ours should be Mystery Girls! Bess suggested. I can see that on jeans and tops and—

I absolutely adore that, Deirdre said from the next table. She thought for a minute. I think we’ll be Lucky Girls!

Nancy, George, and Bess rolled their eyes. Deirdre could be such a copycat sometimes, but that was okay since their designs would be different.

Do you think we’ll make any money from this? George asked.

Money! Katherine Madison said. "You mean, like, real money?"

Are you kidding me? Nadine Nardo exclaimed. Fashion designers are all rich. She took a deep breath and exhaled. I could be a millionaire before I’m in the fifth grade!
