Project Runway Ep. 3 Recapcomments (3) September 4th, 2009
What says California more than surfer wear? It was only a matter of time until the cast of Project Runway found themselves on the beach in LA. And Tim Gunn in flip flops? Perfect.
This week's challenge was the first this season where the contestants had to pair off and create garments as a team. And of course in classic Project Runway style, each team was forced to create a second look at the last minute.
I was surprised at how well many of the contestants worked together, and astonished at how badly others clashed, but what's good reality TV without a little arguing, really?
Personally, I think that Louise & Althea and Shirin & Carol Hannah were robbed without even a mention from the judges. The zipper details Louise and Althea made at the last minute was incredibly impressive and Shirin and Carol's look was probably one of the only ones I could actually see on the beach.
