Project Runway Week 7 Preview

This week on Project Runway, Heidi sends the designers to meet Tim at an undisclosed location on 5th Avenue. When the remaining designers end up at the Lord & Taylor flagship store, they meet Bonnie Brooks, the President of L&T. The designers find out that they will be part of a special Project Runway 10th Season Collection at Lord & Taylor, and if they win this challenge, their dress will be reproduced and sold along with nine other dresses from past contestants.

The designers sketch, and then head back to the workroom where fabric is provided for them.  In the workroom, Tim critiques the designers work. Elena gets upset that she is struggling with the criteria for this challenge. Gunnar offers comfort to Elena. Christopher shows Tim a technique that he is known for, and Tim thinks it could be a risk.

Race to the Runway –  Melissa struggles to finish. Sonjia can barely fit her top on her model and breaks down. The girls are having a lot of problems, where the boys are much more relaxed.  The designers all show their looks on the runway.  The judges meet with and grill the top and bottom designers.  After the Runway, the judges deliberate.  A winner is named, and they will have their look reproduced and sold for Lord & Taylor

Project Runway Week 5 Preview

This week on Project Runway on Lifetime, morning reality will set in when Melissa is the only girl left in her room.  The designers meet Heidi on the Runway, where she holds the infamous button bag.  Nina Garcia arrives to tell the designers about their next challenge.  They will be designing a capsule collection for the new Marie Claire at Work magazine.

Heidi tells the designers it is a team challenge, and everyone is disappointed.  The designers divide into two teams: Sonjia, Melissa, Elena, Dmitry,Alicia, Raul and Nathan, Ven, Christopher, Fabio, Gunnar.  The teams start to work, Elena clashes with the group, Gunnar is annoyed with micromanaging.  The teams head to Mood.  Back in the workroom, one of the teams discovers they are missing a bag and now have to improvise with less materials.  Raul gets frustrated.

Tim meets with the teams and gives his critiques.  He worries about Gunnar not speaking up.  After the designers finish their outfits, they get to direct a photo shoot for Marie Claire.  Elena clashes with everyone at the shoot, and argues with Melissa.  The looks from both teams walk the runway for the judges, and the judges are shown the photos from their shoot.  The judges talk to both teams on the runway.  Sorry socialites!  I don’t know in advance who is eliminated.  I’m not that famous yet…

Project Runway Week 3 Preview

The competition is really heating up with every twist and turn on Project Runway this week.  On tonight’s episode, the designers will meet Heidi on the runway and are told to meet Tim at the Southside Seaport.  When they arrive they find Tim and several Lexus vehicles.  They each get a key that will determine their car and their partner.  Their car and it’s color must inspire a red-carpet look to be worn at the Emmy’s.  They are told they have clients waiting for them.

Since there is always a twist, when the designers hop in their cars, they discover that their clients are former runway contestants.   In the workroom, some of the teams have difficulty working together.  Elena stomps around and bosses Buffi.  Christopher begins to lose patience with Andrea.  Gunnar and Kooan try to find a way to work together even though their methods are worlds apart.  Tim Gunn offers his critiques and the clients add their input.  Besides elimination, that’s always the scariest part.  Gunnar and Kooan’s client is demanding.  Alicia and Raul’s client hates their fabric.  Andrea and Chris’s client worries that they have her showing too much skin.  Ven and Fabio’s client is delighted by their design.  With all this designer drama, I’m already on the edge of my seat wondering who will be in and who will be out.
