Project Runway All Stars: "The Business of Fashion"comments (11) March 9th, 2012
This week, the designers are challenged to design a garment for Nanette Lepore. Each designer is asked to share their sketches and designs, and are given a fabric budget based on the retail price for their would-be garment. Mondo struggles with this step because he does not usually sketch.
The designers each choose fabrics from the Nanette Lepore collection of prints, which they must transform into ready-to-wear looks for the average shopper rather than a model. The winning design will be sold for charity to support the New York City Garment District.
This week, tensions are high and the alliances in the workroom are clear (Michael/Mondo vs. Austin/Kenley), and then even those friendships are strained under the stress. The judges liked each of the garments, but also had something negative to say about each one. They loved Austin's raincoat and respected Mondo's fabric composition. They thought Michael needed to show a stronger point of view, but it was Kenley's attitude and uninspired garment that sent her home this week.
Do you agree with the all male final three or did you hope to see a different designer in the finale?
