"Project Runway" Recap: Episode 6
Guest post by Kristin Swenson, Co-Editor of BonBon Rose Girls
Last week's episode had a lot of promise. For the challenge the designers were paired up with young students from the Harlem School of Arts. The designers were to design an avant-garde look based on their student partner's painting. Overall, I was expecting the designs to be a bit more adventurous, but, instead, many of the looks were far from bold.
I have to say, that I was quite surprised that Anthony Ryan's glue gun project of a dress was the winning look. And unlike past designers, the judges didn't seem to hold his poor performance in the previous episode against him.
There were a few looks that were inspired. Anya's high/low skirted feather bedecked creation was certainly more exciting than not. Speaking of feathers...Although, controversial, I quite liked Kimberly's feathered S&M(ish) frock. And Bryce's straight jacket gown looked like it could have come straight from a Cirque de Soleil performance.
Now that we've addressed the good...Let's talk about the B-A-D. I don't even know where to start with Bert's geometric jumpsuit. You know it's a rough design, when a super thin model looks dumpy. I keep waiting for Laura to surprise me with something interesting, but her yellow bridesmaid dress gone wrong had me yawning.
Poor Joshua C. was once again sent home. His use of another harnessed ensemble didn't wow the judges this week. While not a winning look, it wasn't the worst to walk the runway, in my opinion, but it appears as if the judges couldn't get past their initial opinion of him. Frankly, I was sad to see him go. His sweet personality was refreshing.
