Project Runway recap

I'm not sure if a black light challenge is as exciting as a rainway, but I give PR credit for trying something new. This is the kind of challenge where I would totally fall on my face. I seriously had no good ideas, the concept was too overwhelming for me. But I think the designers did well, don't you?

Spoilers ahead...

Best moments: For some reason, the little blacklight flashlights made me laugh. When the designers were running around Mood with them, it made me think of a giant game of flashlight tag. With the lights on hahaha.

Worst moments: I took a class in college that talked about the kind of art that doesn't look like art. Y'know, like thirty plastic bottles stacked on top of each other or a trash can full of cats. And how people say "I could do that". Apparently, the appropriate response is: "Yeah, but you didn't." I wish Cornelius had been in that class. If he can box pleat a skirt and glue some crap on it, then he should do that next time. We'll see how it turns out.

See all the looks here.

Best garments: I guess Erin's was the best. You can't knock her for simplicity, she did all that beading on the skirt with tiny little neon pieces. And her dress was the only one that was actively pretty, unlike Jenni's which was butt ugly. Actually, Roberi's was beautiful as well, although maybe it just wasn't "enough". I wish this had been some kind of evening wear challenge so he could have done a full-length dress.

Worst garments: I guess neon=trashy? What was with all the butt cheek this episode? The lack of taste in some of these outfits was sad. I also thought they leaned too heavily on the color white (Brik, Dexter, I'm looking at you). And Rik's hooker outfit was by far the worst. I don't think it was fair to oust Kimber just because she had previously been in the bottom. Rik genuinely thought his was good. I was glad they saved Mah-Jing, it kind of sucked that the pink dye acted so differently than the rest (although I'm not sure it would have mattered). I think he did the right thing by admitting it was off-base and explaining, humbly, that he was just trying to make it work.

I'm sad to see Kimber go because I didn't hate her dress, but I think the judges were over her for some reason. She handled it with grace, which is even further indication that she probably should have stayed. At this point, I'm not rooting for anyone in particular but I'm certainly rooting AGAINST Cornelius. Ugh.

Next week: Swimwear!

  1. I don't see Kimber as a designer. But I don't know how boring Sarah skated through another week. You probably don't even know who Sarah is. :eyeroll:
    I think Kimber is better than she is but far behind others with regard to actual design/design ideas.

    I thought Jenni's bomber idea was SO FREAKING AWESOME and could have really been elevated a bit.

    Maybe that's what Erin does have...the ability to get it done and get it done well. But I don't like her aesthetic, at all. Sexy? I saw an 8 year old's nightgown or a 5 year olds fairy costume in that look. But it WAS well executed. And it was conceptual which is more than can be said for some others.


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