On last week's episode of Project Runway, we had an absolutely realistic little challenge, an experience well within the realms of what might happen to a fashion designer in their actual careers. Hahahahaha. . . no. It was fun, though. Tim took the designers to a muddy, manure-y farm where their models were dressed in potato sacks. Their mission was to design a dress made from the burlap. On top of that, models picked designers, feelings were hurt and an array of dyes and trims were plucked from bushel baskets. It was a bit trippy.
Here is your winning dress from designer Jay. Lovely, but not my favorite. (Count how many times I say that while blogging about this season.) It's reminiscent of other dresses we've seen on PR episodes past, most notably Suede's (remember Suede?) Natalie Portman dress from Season Whatever. . . um, Season Five. But Jay did a nice job here dyeing the fabric and making a young and flirty dress from some icky stuff. Kudos to him.
And here is your losing. . . garment, from Pamela. To be fair, she also did a good job dyeing the burlap to make it look like acid washed denim from 1984. To be even more fair, if you paired this with a flannel shirt and a pack of Dorals, you could find this girl at the Spitfire Bar up the road from me on a Saturday night shooting pool and drinking MGD. The back of the dress is actually worse, and makes the model's behind look like a parade float. I will spare you that vision.
And speaking of behinds. . . take a look at Ping's dress. Ping! You wacky physical therapist/fashion designer you! You draping the fabric on your own body, and I want the dress to empasize your pelvic movements strangeoid you. Ping! The dress looks like a potato sack! Yes, it does. Only a potato sack slit north of the tootie, so that this poor girl's entire behind is exposed to eyes, elements and internet screen captures that will last for eons. Ping! I forgot, you prefer the word "buttocks." I am loving me some Ping Ping Ping, because this design is bananas.
