"Project Runway" Recap
This week, the Project Runway designers were faced with the formidable challenge of designing a daytime to evening transitional look for Ms. Nina Garcia herself. I can't think of many more nerve wracking tasks than designing for an editor of her caliber. You have to bring your A game and then some to even have a prayer of making that lady happy. When describing her likes and dislikes to the designers, her list of dislikes was a wee bit daunting.
After a visit to Mood Fabrics, Anthony Ryan and Becky walked away with the same print, Danielle snagged a sickly green chiffon and Anya went the mustard yellow route. Unlike many, I quite like the color mustard, but Anya wasn't designing a look for me, she was designing for Nina and I can't recall a time that I've ever seen Nina rock mustard.
In the end, Anya decided to dye her fabric a dowdy brown shade of all things. I can't say that I liked the end result any better than the original color. Surprisingly, the fact that Anthony Ryan and Becky chose the same fabric didn't seem to be an issue. Perhaps the judges' comments on that subject got left on the cutting room floor?
Kimberly won bragging rights this week with her metallic seamed top. While I wasn't blown away by it, I can see why it took the cake. We got a sneak peek of Nina wearing the winning look at her office and it did indeed look lovely on her!
I really did not expect Julie to go home and neither did she. During our interview with her this afternoon she said she was "surprised to be on the bottom with that garment."
While her color block almost coat dress wasn't the most flattering piece in the world, it had potential. I found Danielle's chiffon creation to be much more elimination worthy, but that's just me.
Until next week lovelies...Head over to my blog, BonBon Rose Girls, on Monday for my full interview with the eliminated designer, Julie!
