Project Runway rehash!

I'm kind of ready for this season to be over. I'm not rooting for anyone and that's kind of the point of reality competition shows. What about you? Do you have a favorite?

Spoilers ahead...

Highlight: I'm not sure that this episode had a highlight. Am I being a Debbie Downer? Oh wait, I know! The outdoor shots of the NY skyline were pretty awesome. The hotel where the designers are staying looks pretty swanky.

Lowlight: I call shenanigans on the Korina-Amanda pairing. ARE YOU KIDDING ME show? Do you think I'm stupid? I don't believe for one second that it wasn't manipulated that way.

Why is everyone telling Amanda she's fake and not wanted there? What is the point of that except to be mean, manipulative and to play mind games? Weird.

Best garment: Kini again. And again he doesn't win. I have two feelings about this. First, Kini should have told the judges that he made the shirt. Especially if he was going to complain about it later! Second, Sean should have said something, but it's also a hard fact that fashion designers do not construct the majority of their collections. I follow Zac Posen on Instagram and he always posts photos of his atelier...full of other people doing the constructing.

Aside from that, Sean's had a touch of pirate to it and I think Kini's design fit the challenge better.

Worst garment: So many. Again. But Sandhya's was terrible.

Best line of the night: "Sandhya's looks like a corn cob, after you've eaten all the corn off of it." --Alexander

"Hashtag...Throwback Thursday." --Nina

I liked Char and I'm really disappointed that she went home. I think we can officially say that this season is one of the worst. These designers have a terrible dynamic together. I'm sure they're lovely individually, but together they're like a moody group of middle schoolers. Let's get it over with already.

Next week: DIAMONDS!

I haven't yet mentioned anything about this, but a few months ago I enrolled in the online course Pattern Workshop: From Sketch to Sale (affiliate link), taught by Lauren Dahl. I'm slowly working my way through it, and it is AWESOME. A full review will be coming when I've completed it. But I wanted to let you know that this weekend the course is $20 off with code LABORDAY20. This course is worth about 5 times what it costs even without the sale price! If you have any interest in creating digital patterns, this course will teach you everything you need to know. Happy Labor Day weekend!


  1. What does Kini have to do to win a challenge!?!?!? His dress was by far the best garment out there. The yellow dresses were just awful.

    1. I'm with you, can't Kini catch a break?! Two weeks in a row Sean steals a win from him. Now there's a good reason for two designers to fight!

  2. My favorite of the episode was Chiara Ferragni. I loved her accent, and especially her commments about the yellow dresses. That is not a yellow I care for. At all.

    1. I couldn't even pay attention to what she was saying, because her accent was so pretty!

  3. The corn cob comment was so hilarious and I couldn't "unsee" corn cob!!!

    Poor Kini. I don't know. I just...don't.

    1. You're right! Once a corn cob, always a corn cob.

  4. I'm rooting for Kini all the way! The way that man can put together garments in no time flat and they look impeccable. He's amazing. And once again Sandhya and her corn cob. She should of went home but the judges just seem to love her for some reason.
    Korina is a hateful shit starter. Kudos to Amanda for putting together her pants. If it would of been me I wouldn't of lifted a finger.

    1. I think Korina owes Amanda an apology after all that. Amanda easily could have left her to fend for herself and ultimately go home for a pants-less model.


I would love to hear from you! Please feel free to comment below.
