Previously On Project Runway: Season 9, Episode 3

This week on Project Runway, the designers were asked to collaborate with a randomly assigned designer to make a fashion forward outfit for stilt walkers. The teams were:
  • Bert and Viktor
  • Anthony Ryan and Laura
  • Joshua and Julie
  • Danielle and Cecilia
  • Anya and Olivier
  • Kimberly and Becky
  • Bryce and Fallene

Anya and Olivier: I loved their choice of fabric, but wasn't so keen on what they were doing to the dress up top. Their look was okay and therefore this team was safe.

Danielle and Cecilia: These two ladies decided that they were going to be "team chiffon" this week, making a chiffon blouse and pant. While the outfit looked wearable, the hair styling was atrocious, but the ladies moved on to see another day.


Kimberly and Becky: I thought that these two ladies had the best overall plan and execution. They both decided that Kim makes good pants, and Becky makes good jackets and together they made a great outfit that even incorporated the model's tattoo. These ladies took second place and will continue on.
Anthony Ryan and Laura: These two made up the dream team. It seems that anything Anthony Ryan has been touching has been turning to Project Runway gold, and this week his team scored the win with this fabulous and flowy red dress, but Anthony Ryan let Laura take the win and immunity. Awe! How Sweet!

Julie and Joshua: These two made up "team circus/matador". They were an odd pair working together and they took there concept too literally and ended up with a costume that the judges didn't like. I also thought the proportions were a little odd-with a teeny tiny body and huge legs, but I am a fan of the zigzag pants. These two survived for the next round.


Bert and Viktor: These two could not get along! I think they were doomed from the get-go when they came up with a costumey design and picked out their hideous fabric. In my opinion, this was the worst of the bunch and Viktor should have gone, but the judges passed them both on with a slap on the wrist.

Bryce and Fallene: These two also fell victim to taking their concept too literally. They'd wanted to make a ballet inspired, rock-n-roll outfit, but ended up making a cheap, slap-dash, Black Swan outfit. Fallene struggled with sewing the bodice, and Bryce spent the whole time making that hideous skirt and criticizing Fallene for not knowing about fabric grain. In the end, Bryce ended up doing the whole dress himself and Fallene made the headpiece,which was the only thing that the judges liked, but the judges sent Fallene home. I thought that between the two, Bryce deserved to go home since he made the dress. I expect he'll probably be out next episode.

What did you think about this weeks episode? Let me know in the comments below.
