Project Runway got off to an interesting start this season. In Previous seasons the first challenge was to create a garment using unconventional items (ie things found in a grocery store etc), but this time the designers were given a vast amount of fine fabrics to choose from. The designers raced across Bryant Park to fight it out over the donated fabrics from Mood. Interestingly enough no one complained over the selection (there was a comment about missing out on a plaid fabric) or duked it out. I did feel bad for the big guy Chris, it was painful seeing him try to run across the park, but he took it like a champ, and it made me INSTANTLY like him.
Of course the winner and the aufed designer canceled each other out for me in the fantasy project runway, Rami’s simple beautifully draped design won, and Simone’s mismatched, poorly constructed disaster got her sent home. I wasn’t wowed by Rami’s design, but it was well done and therefore I can’t argue the decision. Simone’s dress was bad, but it wasn’t as bad as the blue horror show Elisa sent down the runway:
Victorya, pretty dress could very likely see myself wearing this, Ricky’s dress is pretty, but the baby doll lingerie as evening wear look was tired before it began.
Kit Pistol’s dress would land anyone on Go Fug Yourself in a heartbeat (maybe because your heart, not to mention your breast is exposed), Carmen’s design was kind of cool, but also kind of ugly.
Sweet P a cute holiday dress , Jillian a bit too orange and a bit too poufy for my taste, the skirt reminded me of Angela’s balloon skirt disasters from a previous season.
Jack’s dress looks like something you can buy at Forever 21.
Kevin’s dress was interesting but looked odd on the runway, the silver looked like she was wearing some sort of armor, Chris’s dress was glam, loved the color.

It always sucks to be the first to go, but it has to be someone. Good luck Simone!!!
Hopefully, there will be some more interesting designs next week, and from the previews there will be some drama too (group challenges are good for that!)
