On tonight’s episode of Project Runway the designers turn to nature for inspiration. The remaining contestants are given birds to use as inspiration as they create two looks for the judges. Meanwhile, tensions are high as the remaining designers compete to win the Lifetime fashion reality TV competition. Keep reading to find out how the world of birds serves as motivation for the designers!
The top six designers on Project Runway include Anya Ayoung-Chee, Bert Keeter, Joshua McKinley, Kimberly Goldson, Laura Kathleen and Viktor Luna.
Host, Heidi Klum tells the designers they will be creating high fashion looks with a very special inspiration. Their muses will be birds! Mentor, Tim Gunn introduces the designers to their birds: Amazon, Raven and Cockatoo. The designers are divided into groups of two: Anya and Laura have the raven; Joshua and Bert have the Amazon parrot; Viktor and Kimberly have the cockatoo. However, there’s a twist this is a head-to-head challenge so the designers in each group will be competing against one another. In addition to their design appearing in an editorial for Marie Claire, the winner of this challenge will receive a $20,000 cash prize.
After sketching their designs for 30 minutes, Tim takes the contestants to Mood to get their material. Back in the workroom, the designers continue to work on their creations then Tim comes in and tells the participants that they will have 30 minutes to sketch a second design! After that, the designers go back to Mood to get their fabric.
Kimberly has an emotional breakdown after she gets stains on her design, then sews through her finger. She leaves the workroom to go into the bathroom and she is heard crying.
Later, Tim visits the designers in the workroom and talks to each one about their looks. Next the models come in to get fitted for the runway show. Tim tells the designers they will only show the judges one look and it’s their choice which one they want.
Tonight’s judges are Heidi, Nina Garcia, Francisco Costa and Michael Kors. After watching all of the designs showcased on the runway the judges begin to deliberate. The groups are judged: Anya had the higher score and Laura had the lower score; Joshua was the higher scorer and Bert was the lower one; Kimberly gets the higher score while Viktor gets the lower score.
The judges send the models off of the stage and talk about who they think should be the challenge winner. After deliberating, the judges select Anya as the winner; then they decide to eliminate Bert.
