Project Runway Episode 13: “Finale, Part 1”
The most recent episode of Project Runway, “Finale Part 1,” included what I always consider to be a season highlight – Tim’s hometown visits to the designers! It’s so fun to see Tim in his “casual” traveling clothes – did you catch the orange cardigan he wore to chat with Fabio?
On to the designs!
The designers had $9,000 and 5 weeks to create their collections. Only three were chosen to go on to Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in New York City. One designer made it this far, only to be denied a chance to show at Lincoln Center.
But wait… there was a twist! The judges decided to let ALL FINAL FOUR designers go on to Fashion Week! So we’ll get to see the complete collections by Christopher, Dmitry, Fabio, and Melissa. What do you think of the surprise ending? And what did you think of the designs?
On to the outfits!
