Project Runway: There's a Pattern Herecomments (4) October 1st, 2010
This week's challenge on Project Runway, brought back the HP textile design challenge from last season. Each designer had the opportunity to create their own patterned fabric to use for their garment. This year, however, there was a twist. The designers had to base their pattern on a personal experience. This twist made for a very emotional episode, including surprise visits from family members.
Each of the fabric prints were very beautiful in their own way. It seemed like those that had the most personal connections with their patterns came out on top. Mondo's was by far the most intimate by putting something very private on display in vibrant colors (his positive HIV status which was previously unknown by the other cast members and his family.) Of course he was the clear winner again, making his personal journey even more significant and rewarding by walking away with this week's prize.
Valerie was sent home this week because her dress was too similar to her napkin dress from the party challenge earlier in the season. It was a tough choice for the judges to decide between Valerie's dress and Andy's garment, but in the end it was Valerie sent home.
Check out the Lifetime website to see the fabric designs and even download them onto your computer. And while you're there, you can also dress up the contestants in their hilarious make over game with ridiculous hats, wigs, and make up.
