Tonight’s episode of Project Runway was the unconventional challenge where designers used Hallmark cards for their outfits. I loved the winner, but I completely disagree with the losing designer tonight. # bringbackdavid
Here are my thoughts on each designer and I put my favorites on the top and my least favorites in descending order.
Edmond– As a huge Survivor fan, I appreciated Edmond’s strategy in the episode. He wants everyone to think he has no idea what he’s doing, and he’s clearly a fan of the show. He was the only designer to have inspiration from an actual card by thinking of a special moment like a wedding. Edmond managed to make a sleek, form fitting top that was made beautifully, and a whimsical tiered bodice. I loved it.
Swapnil– He surprised us with a fun dress. It’s very wearable, and I loved the amount of detail placed into this dress. I love that he used a simple silhouette and focused on the texture of the dress. My only thing is that I didn’t love the buttons on the top or the boots. But overall, this was a great dress.
David– I honestly can’t believe David went home. He has such a great design aesthetic, and this coat was so fashionable. I want this coat. It’s so shocking and interesting, but still wearable. Sure, he didn’t follow the rules, but there were some much tackier designs. I think he should’ve been in the safe group, and Heidi could’ve just warned him that he shouldn’t have broken the rules similar to Ashley. He should be on All Stars, because this was a huge mistake. Also, why did Tim tell him to start over? His crop top was interesting, and sporty.
Candice– I think this was slightly better than Blake’s dress, because it really did look like metal and not cards.
Kelly– This isn’t my personal taste in fashion, but I thought this was a well-constructed look. I don’t really like the hood and the cut of the crop top, but the fringe was a great idea, and the crop top was pieced well.
Joseph- This should have been in the bottom. Similar to Amanda’s, the skirt is terrible but the top is cute. However, at least Amanda had some sort of design to the top half. This was so boxy and unwearable.
Those are my thoughts on the designers! Tune in next week for episode 3.
