Project Runway rehash!

Holy pintucks Batman! I won the first round of the Fabricista Fashion Challenge! If you voted for me, THANK YOU! I tell you what, after going through a mere week of this kind of thing, I have a LOT more sympathy for the Project Runway designers. I hear myself repeating all kinds of cliches in my head while working, it's quite sad really ("It's too safe...I need to stick with my vision...I could be out"). But luckily for me, it all came together and I had a winning look! Hooray! If only there was immunity for me...

Spoilers ahead...

Highlight: This was certainly the best runway show so far. Perhaps these are secretly all avant-garde designers deep inside? I also enjoyed Tim's pensive looks during the critiques, he's always so deep in thought!

Lowlight: I was a little confused why everyone was using glue. Isn't most glue somewhat water-soluble? I've never sewn with vinyl, is glue necessary?

I felt pretty badly for the models. Next time you're caught in a rainstorm, try walking to your car and looking fierce at the same time.

Best garment: Oh. My. Word. Sean deserves all the wins for his amazing dye idea that actually worked. My mouth was hanging open the whole time his model was walking.

I also loved Kini's living umbrella. So cool.

Worst garment: Sandyha's was just way too much. Death by pinwheel. I also didn't like Korina's, I agreed with the guest judge that it was definitely a Halloween costume.

Best line of the night: "This is nothing if not the season of the vagina." --Tim

At the beginning of the episode, I said to myself "oh, Fade is still here". I'd totally forgotten about him, and apparently this was a premonition. Thank goodness Kini and Sean are double winners, if Kini lost to Sean again there might have been some punches thrown. They both deserved their wins.

Next week: I obsess about fit for the FM contest, and the PR designers make doll clothes. I'm not sure which is worse!


  1. First, a big congrats to you! Pintucks looked so cute on the Scout.

    I was happy with the co-winners. Sandyha, sigh, It was so clownish. I'm utterly lost as far as why she is a favorite. Nina seems to have a real hate on for Emily, and it gets worse each week.
    I was sad to see Fade go, I kept thinking he would pull something fabulous out, and this should have been his week. Oh well!

    1. I think you're right about Nina and Emily, they're going to have words at some point!

  2. I was holding my breath when Sean's dress came out. So happy it worked. I was happy with the dual winners this week. I also cannot figure out what the judges see in Sandyha.

  3. Congrats on your win!! Everyone was so inspiring and it was definitely a tough one to judge!

    1. Thank you! I loved how different everyone's looks were, so fun!

  4. I thought I commented on this...

    Sean. That was FANTASTIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And Kini's was, Nina's favorite word, editorial. It was an editorial dream!
