The designers are tasked to create a look for the accessories sponsor:
Bombshell Edmond, Swapnil
Trendsetter Candice, Kelly
Girl Next Door Ashley
Modern Classic Laurie
Femme Nouveau Merline
They go to Mood! One day for this challenge.
This week's corporate shill awkwardly recites the types of women they want their brand to appeal to. I would list it here, but ultimately it all boiled down to "sexy" and "confident". The designers get to go to Mood for the second challenge in a row! The producers really are letting them off leash at last.
During critiques, Swapnil is making a dress in a leopard print that looks pretty well like what Shania Twain wore in the That Don't Impress Me Much video. Candice is, no surprise, executing her look in black (and white). Laurie is making a sheath dress that Tim says he has seen before. As much as I like Laurie and she gives good confessional, it's shocking that she made top 7. Let's see if she can redeem herself after being bottom two last week.
Edmond is "making excuses" to Tim and he is not having it. Tim hates his print and his whole concept. It looks super matronly, Joseph would be so proud (and probably saying something misogynistic cause that's Joseph). Kelly wants to do something colourful and confident, which Tim likens to her personality. She has a cool print, but also has a cookie-monster blue faux-fur fabric that could go very tacky very quick.
Ashley is doing a pleather jacket (thanks for the budget, PR producers) and a fitted dress. Tim thinks the dress reads hospital gown. Merline's progress is slow, and the bust of her look needs work.
Twist time! The looks need a label, and which they will design and also have printed on to a shirt to wear. At model fittings, Edmond changes course and starts working on a red dress that looks exactly like date-night dress from The Sims.
I wanted to add photos for the labels the designers made, but they aren't on the Project Runway website :(
Ashley Nell Tipton
WINNER - Edmond this won because it is easy to reproduce and predictable (acutal words from the judges)
OUT - Laurie
What are your thoughts ONTD? I am so so so over the winner of this week.
