The final four designers get $10,000 to create a 12 looks for their fall collections. The designers need to forecast trends, consider fall colors, and include outerwear. It’s time for everyone to go home and create!
Four months later, Tim first visits Patricia in New Mexico and has dinner with her family. He also visits Patricia’s studio and sees her collection so far. There’s even weaved fabric and horsehair in the collection.
Tim’s next stop is Portland, Oregon to visit Michelle. After visiting with her family, Tim gets a sneak peek at her collection. She’s worried because she’s only a third of the way done.
Austin, Texas is Tim’s next destination to visit Daniel. Before looking at his progress, he talks to Daniel’s friends and sister. Tim reminds Daniel to keep his collection looking fresh.
Tim’s final visit is with Stanley in Hollywood and Tim meets his partner and niece. He sees Stanley’s progress with his collection and Stanley reveals his sister passed away suddenly last year and confesses it has been very difficult to deal with.
Four weeks later, it’s almost Mercedes Benz Fashion Week. All the designers are back in New York to put the finishing touches on their collections. The designers must prove they can show at Fashion Week and will show three garments to the judges. As a surprise, the designers will have helpers! Samantha, Richard, Layana, and Amanda are helping the designers. Layana is also pregnant with her first child!
It’s time for the runway show! Three designers will move onto Fashion Week and one designer will be out. There is no guest judge, only the three regular judges.
The judges liked Michelle’s looks, were underwhelmed by Daniel’s pieces, and had mixed feelings about Patricia and Stanley’s looks.
The judges first announce Michelle and Patricia are in! It all comes down to Daniel and Stanley. Stanley is going to Fashion Week! Sadly, that means Daniel is out.
Tune in next week to see who wins this season of Project Runway!
