Project Runway - Takin' it to the Streetscomments (2) March 19th, 2010
This week, the designers were paired up into teams and each was assigned a neighborhood in Manhattan to use for inspiration. Some of the designers excelled with their partners, while others had a harder time getting along. Anthony and Maya found inspiration in the paper laterns and architechture of Chinatown. Amy and Jonathan traveled to the Upper East Side to see what they could find there. Emilio chose Seth Aaron as a partner and they headed to Harlem, where they were excited by the use of denim and the artistic quality of the graffiti. Jay and Mila had the most difficult time working together, but were both happy to explore the East Village for their inspiration.
The top two teams were Emilio/Seth Aaron and Anthony/Maya. For the first time there were two winners for a challenge with Emilio and Seth Aaron sharing the honor.
The bottom two were Jonathan and Amy. Amy was sent home for not capturing the spirit of the Upper East Side with her designs.
