Project Runway Episode 3

Article Image

My favorite garment this week was Johnny and Irina’s white dress with the brown mesh cover and macramé back.

This episode was all about teamwork. Last night’s project took us to the beach for “fun and fashionable surf wear” with a twelfth-hour additional avant-garde design requested as a companion for the first water wear assignment. Each assigned team leader picked one teammate and they were off and running.

Most of the teams appeared to work cooperatively, but two had problems. Leader, Qristyl chose Epperson, and they didn’t seem to agree on anything. She fought him constantly by dismissing every suggestion he made. Their bickering continued through the judges’ question session. Ultimately, their designs were in the bottom two.

Then, consider team Mitchell and Ra’mon. Remember Mitchell from last week with the fly-away shorts? He was the assigned leader and picked Ra’mon saying, “I wanted to work with someone who could carry me on this challenge.” It looks like our boy Mitchell just donned his slacker clothing. Thankfully the judges saw right through his game and (it’s about time!) sent Mitchell home.  But first the team was declared the winning designers. This is high drama for Project Runway, the winner and the loser on the same two man team.

Even the Models of the Runway showed how teamwork influences their careers, with the model/designer team, and the intimacy of friends in the group.

My favorite garment this week was Johnny and Irina’s white dress with the brown mesh cover and macramé back.


My dreaded garment was the lace chaps Nicholas designed. I thought the lace was a great idea, but when Nicholas ran short on fabric he shouldn’t have taken it out of the inseam. What would you have done?

    Take away the lace chaps and I think Nicholas' dress would have stood on its own. As the dress with chaps seemed to be edging into Frederick's of Hollywood territory, I give Gordana Gehlhausen (Nicholas' teammate) major points for going along with it. Also, she did beautiful weaving/macrame on the swimsuit top. She was, IMO, the most supportive teammate of a design she wouldn't design or buy.

    I don't know who won -- I don't have much occasion for surf-wear. Ra'mon looked so tired at the end, I'm glad he won.

    Good-bye Mitchell.

    I think I would have added that lace from the leggings to the hem of the skirt in a cute little ruffled finish or made godets in the skirt to make it a little flippy and to add some movement. It would have created more balance to the entire outfit. Mitchell has a vision, he just needs to become solid in his skills.

    Good luck Mitchell!

    i also am happy ra'mon won he did all the work and mitchell did nothing. he can not sew at all i question if what he submited to get onthe show was his own work honestly. gordana was the very best team player ever because you could tell she thought the chaps were crazy best she still had his back in front if the judges. as to qristyl, istill do not know what she can do. point blank i think she is floating int his contest thus far.epperson was a mess, i am sorry at the end of the day you have to fall back and do as you are told while doing your very best on what you are given. he was a trouble maker and brought his team down.

    That macrame piece was so beautiful I was sorry I could not see more of it. It was masterfully done.
    The lace piece, I could do without. I understood it but they knew that it was not goning to make the grade. The team was so supportive of each other, that was refreshing to see.
