On tonight’s episode of Project Runway on Lifetime the final five designers have to make a mini collection for the judges. Plus five former participants return to help out the remaining contestants. Keep reading to find out who comes back as the fashion contest intensifies!
The top five designers on Project Runway include Anya Ayoung-Chee, Joshua McKinley, Kimberly Goldson, Laura Kathleen and Viktor Luna. For this week’s challenge, the clothiers try to make the cut by creating a mini collection that embodies their fashion vision. The winner will be going to the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.
After sketching their designs outside at Governor’s Island with artwork and sculptures for inspiration, mentor Tim Gunn takes the final five to Mood to select their fabrics.
Back in the workroom the designers are told they will be getting some help–from former contestants! Tim brings in Bert, Becky, Bryce, Anthony and Olivier. One by one the designers pick who will work alongside them: Kimberly selects Becky, Viktor picks Olivier, Laura decides on Anthony, Anya goes with Bert and Joshua chooses Bryce.
Tensions in the workroom hit a new level with the five remaining designers putting together three looks while 10 people are all trying to work together.
It’s now time to fit the models. Afterwards, the designers continue to drape, sew, cut, mend and tie. They wrap up their work for the day.
On day two, the designers work to beat the clock as runway show time approaches quickly. The designers talk to the hair stylists and make-up artists about how they want their models to look. Back in the workroom, the designers make some finishing touches.
The runway show begins and the final five send down their three looks for the judges. Tonight’s judges are Heidi Klum, Nina Garcia, Michael Kors and guest judge actress Zoe Saldana. After watching all of the designs showcased on the runway the judges begin to deliberate. The final five are brought back out on-stage: Anya, Laura, Joshua, Kimberly and Viktor. The judges select Anya as the first designer to continue on in the competition followed by Viktor then Joshua and Kimberly therefore, Laura is sent home.
