This week’s episode of Project Runway All Stars starts out with Nina Garcia presenting the challenge. (Oh how we’ve missed her!) The designers are partnering with fashion bloggers to identify a fashion trend for 2014. They will create a look that includes what they think will be a big trend next year! The bloggers will model the looks on the runway.
The Pantone color of the year is Radiant Orchid and the designers must incorporate this color in their look as well. The winner gets a special prize. Nina will personally endorse them and shoot a video for the front page of Style Hall. The video will be seen by 50 million people! Pantone is also gifting a $10,000 prize package, which includes a three night stay at the Pantone Hotel in Brussels.
Korto chooses to work with blogger Carli, Christopher picks Fleur, Seth Aaron selects Gigi, Elena chooses Dulce, and Viktor picks Jarmaine. The bloggers visit the workroom and talk about ideas with the designers. Then it’s time for Mood shopping and work time! Right before runway, Viktor finishes a second look because he isn’t happy with his first one, but there isn’t too much drama.
Sitting in for Georgina this week is beloved designer and Project Runway winner Christian Siriano! The guest judges are Calvin Klein Creative Director Francisco Costa and of course, Nina Garcia. Korto is the clear winner this week! Seth Aaron and Elena are safe, meaning it all comes down to Christopher and Viktor… so sad, as they are both wonderful designers! Sadly, Viktor is going home. Before he leaves, he talks highly of his experience on All Stars, gives a wink, and fans himself one more time (a classic Viktor move). I’ll miss watching him on the show!
