Project Runway 5/30/19--"The Art of Fashion" summary

Previously on “Project Runway”: we had the usual makeover episode, with women who “keep the city moving”. Everyone at least tried to do what their clients wanted, except for Tessa, who told her client she wasn't going to get a pink girly dress and then laughed about it to the other designers. And then lied to Christian and the judges about how her client loves dark colors. The judges are at least tired of her arguing, but Jamall made a poorly constructed prom dress, and his client loved it but it wasn't “him”, so of course Jamall was sent home. Sebastian made a retro dress that was still modern and he won. (click for more)

Project Runway 5/23/19--"New York City of Dreams" summary

Previously on “Project Runway”: designers were asked to design a high fashion look for a cause they want to promote. Everyone had a cause to work on, although some of them didn't work for fashion looks. Tessa made a dress referring to her sexual assault, and it was weird because she alluded to it but didn't explain until an obvious producer-planted question on the runway. It just felt like someone decided to orchestrate that reveal for maximum emotion and it might be Tessa but it certainly could be the producers. Also everyone had to make T-shirts, but that was pretty low drama. Venny's shirt said “i have a name” and black and white. I think it was the best by far. Sadly his design had too many things going on, and was poorly made, so he was sent home. Sebastian made a gorgeous gown with different shades of skin tone, but he lost to Bishme, who was supporting Baltimore youth with a dress with sequined faces. (click for more)

Project Runway 5/16/19--"What Do You Care About?" summary

Previously on “Project Runway”: the designers were asked to create stagewear for Elton John. Imagine if Elton John asked you for a stagewear outfit at the height of his popularity. Guest judge was the costume designer for the upcoming biopic. Also the eliminated designers came back to help. That didn't even cause any drama, except for Sonia kind of acted like this was her design. But that was so minor. Bishme made an amazing denim jumpsuit with rhinestones, but lost to Garo and his silver jumpsuit and giant collar. The judges sent Lela home over Venny, for being mediocre. (click for more)

Project Runway 5/9/19--"The Stitch Is Back" summary

Previously on “Project Runway”: Morena Baccarin showed up to tell the designers they needed to work in groups of three to make a capsule collection for a trip to Rio. So they have to both make swimwear and also match a client's style. Then Karlie and Nina weren't even on the runway, which kind of maybe explains what went down. You know Nina wouldn't tolerate this. So Hester made a swimsuit, which was sort of OK except the backside did not fit at all. It was way too large, so it was wrinkly, but it also gave her a wedgie. Not one word was spoken about this. Even Hester acknowledged it was jacked up, but the judges not only didn't mention it, they gave her the win. I know. When she got back to the Scrap Bin, Tessa flat out told her that her look sucked and then acted like she wasn't being petty. Renee tried to make pants in a new way but they were terrible and she was eliminated. (click for more)

Project Runway 5/2/19--"Blame It on Rio" summary

Previously on “Project Runway”: everyone got a clear Lucite handbag from Brandon, with a random object inside. Each designer had to make an elegant design inspired by whatever was in the handbag they took. Tessa, sadly, declared several times that she did not want a plus-sized model. Tessa, you should have won the video game challenge but come on. To be perfectly fair, the two plus sized models (who aren't even plus sized, but have a deep front porch if you know what I mean) are the last two, so it's not like Tessa was alone in her opinion. Hester decided she was going to waste her immunity on a mermaid gown with pasties, because of course she did. Jamall was due for some personal growth so he draped his fabric instead of using muslin, so everyone (literally everyone) praised him for personal growth and he won. Even though his dress had weird pouches and draping. Sonia didn't have time to make everything she wanted, and the dress she did make was too boring, so she was eliminated. (click for more)
