This week is the Project Runway HP challenge! The designers get to use the HP Envy Rove to design a custom print. Their muses are young innovators and the contestants visited them for inspiration. Alexander even got a cool cake as a present!
The next day, the original prints that the designers created arrive at the workroom. After shopping at Mood, it’s work time. During Tim’s critiques, Helen has a small freak out and her self-doubt takes over. Thankfully, the designers are given extra time to finish their looks.
This week’s muses join the designers to watch the runway show. The winning designer and their muse will receive a prize package from HP and Intel and all of the young innovators will also receive a prize. Designer Peter Som is this week’s guest judge.
Alexandria moves onto the next round, and the remaining six designers have the highest and lowest scores. Some of the designs were fabulous, and Heidi even mentioned it will be difficult to pick a winner. However, some looks were bad, and the designers are scared there will be a double elimination.
The winner is announced… and it’s Dom! Bradon also got props from the judges. Sadly, Alexander is out and Justin is safe. Kate is left on the runway and in a tearful moment, she is out too for the second time. This elimination was very emotional for everyone.
