We call Project Runway The Greatest Show On Earth, so it was fitting that last night's episode — in which the final four were decided — began at the circus.
The bad news: I went to bed early and my DVR declined to record ProjRun last night. The good news: My mom watched it and told me everything.
Last night in a ProjRun first — and a feat of integrated advertising — the designers created their own fabrics (using software and computers made by a sponsor). It was all downhill from there!
I love New York! I grew up here; it's a helluva town. But last night's episode — in which the designers had to come up with ensembles inspired by Manhattan neighborhoods — made NYC look like a dull, colorless place.
The challenge on last night's episode was to design a garment "inspired" by the elements: Earth, air, fire, water. Unfortunately, no one levitated or got a Connie Francis-themed jukebox, like in The Craft.
Last night's episode was the one I've been waiting for. Thinking outside the box! Using nontraditional materials! Making models look like half-naked '60s go-go girl Barbie dolls!
