Project Runway Recap: Finale, Part 1

In Part 1 of the two-part Season 11 finale of Project Runway, the designers were asked to create a three-piece Fall 2013 ensemble to be considered as one of the three designers to attend Mercedes Benz NY Fashion week. Tim Gunn visited each designers’ home: Patricia in New Mexico, Michelle in Portland, Daniel in Texas and Stanley in Los Angeles.

Here, Lindsay Ebbin, Global Creative Director of Vibe Beauty gives his opinions on the best moments.

During the show, Heidi sported a leopard jacket and fierce leather skirt, with black liquid eyeliner. Zac wore a black velvet jacket, and Nina wore a one shoulder black dress with tousled hair.

On the Runway
Daniel created a Salvador Dali-inspired look with three different trajectories. His models 70’s sting ray jackets and hair makeup was reminiscent of a Robert Palmer video. Nina and Zac felt the  stingray textile wasn’t sophisticated enough, and the other model’s outfit lacked inspiration. Heidi felt underwhelmed. Overall, the guests felt he missed the wow factor.
