Project Runway All-Stars rehash!

I think I'm going to take some time off from blogging next week. AB and I have been swapping the same cold for more than a week now and I'm OVER IT. Ufh. I mean, mentally over it, not actually over it and not sick anymore. Although, I'm the kind of person who gripes for a break and then gets bored the second it starts. No PR next week on Thanksgiving, so I guess we'll all have to spend time with our families instead. Y'know, swapping yummy food and...germs.

Spoilers ahead...

Things I loved:


I love the Mood shopping trips. Pretty sure "visit Mood NYC" is on my bucket list.

Does anyone listen to Zanna? 

Austin!

Things I hated:


Okay. This challenge. It was such a nice idea but WHY did they have to throw in that nonsensical Lifetime movie tie-in?! Hey, designers, be inspired by the 30's, but we're not going to show you any photos of that time period, instead we're going to show you movie clips from something else that's inspired by the 30's. Makes sense.

Can Viktor please lose the fan?

Favorite garment(s):


I agree with Korto, I want to wear her menswear jacket!

Every week somebody is hating on Christopher's simplicity, but dang it if I don't love everything he makes.

Least favorite garment:


I thought Jeffrey's coat was terrible. 

Irina clearly didn't listen to Zanna. She made a sparkly bustier AND a dramatic jacket. Although I did like the skirt.

Best line of the night:


"I hope it makes sense to the judges, because it doesn't make sense to me." --Christopher


I found this episode really interesting, because I've been obsessing over menswear this week. I'm making my husband a coat from Christmas so I've been doing a lot of menswear internet browsing. I cannot believe how much work these All-Stars accomplish in one day. It would take me a week just to design something to fit this challenge.

Sad to see Mychael go, but I guess I haven't been blown away by anything he's made thus far. And his jacket...yeah...it was baaaad. He probably should have looked around the workroom and noticed that no one else made a coat out of glitter.
