The three final designers of season 11 are Patricia, Michelle and Stanley. It’s finally time to get ready for their runway shows at New York Fashion Week. They aren’t alone though, they still have Layana, Richard and Amanda as helpers. After a surprise visit to Mood for fabric to put the finishing touches on their collections, the designers get to work. The final designers also have a hair and makeup consultation.
Dmitry, the season 10 winner, is doing very well! He dressed Heidi and talked about his life since he won last season.
Back in the workroom, Tim critiques the designer’s looks again and reminds them to make their looks more cohesive. The models come by for fittings and the designer’s families pop in for a visit too. Stanley is stressed because he has four garments to make on the last day before the show.
Backstage at the show, helpers are still sewing pieces for Stanley! Three minutes before the show, the models aren’t dressed yet and the sewing is still incomplete.
Soon, it’s time for the runway shows! Michael Kors is the guest judge and we’re glad to have him back, even if it’s just for one episode! Michelle shows first and her garments are gorgeous and well-made. Her collection is definitely cohesive as well. Patricia is up next and shows some striking and interesting looks. In true Patricia fashion, her collection is detailed beautifully. Stanley shows last and his collection is inspired by urban opulence. His collection is chic and sophisticated.
After the judges talk to the designers, they have a huge decision to make! The final three contestants are emotional and anxious.
Stanley learns he did not win this season, so it’s all down to the ladies.
Michelle is declared the winner of Project Runway Season 11!! Congratulations! Everyone here at Second City Style agrees, Michelle definitely deserved it!
