Project Runway: Race to the Finishcomments (9) September 24th, 2010
This week, the designers were challenged to create a high fashion garment to be featured in an advertorial. The winner would also receive $20,000. Designers had to choose a finish (velvet, matte, bright, or crystal) and were given the makeup to complete their look. With two days for the challenge, of course there was an added twist. The designers were asked to create a second ready-to-wear look to match their first design.
The bottom three included Ivy, who had trouble fitting her model, Valerie, and Michael. The judges agreed that Michael's garments were well constructed even if he missed the mark. Deciding between Ivy and Valerie was a difficult choice for the judges, as they thought both were equally terrible. Valerie was saved for another week, and Ivy was sent home.
The top three included Mondo, with his bright kaleidoscope dresses, Andy, and Gretchen. Andy's well constructed pants, and Gretchen's distinct design and use of feathers were judge favorites. Mondo won another challenge with his garments this week.
Do you agree that Mondo is the best designer of the season so far? Did the judges get this week's elimination right?
