Project Runway Avant Garde


This week the designers had to create an avant garde look based on the models' unique hairstyles. However, they had to do it in teams. Team challenges are not my favorite because it becomes more about bickering than about the garment. I wanted to see what everyone would have done on their own.

As an added surprise, Tim announced that the designers would have to create a second, ready to wear look. This look would embody the essence of the avant garde outfit, but it be realistic enough to wear on the street. But wait, there's more. With yet another surprise, Tim informed them that the winning team's looks will be featured in a TRESSemme ad in Elle magazine.

The teams were randomly assigned. The team most likely to be fabulous was Christian and Chris. The last minute team was Jillian and Victorya who both struggle with time management, but they had a great avant garde design.

Last minute, but still amazing:

Rami and Sweet Pea did not work well together, and Rami still keeps making the same kind of dress even if its supposed to be avant garde. I actually like Sweet Pea's read to wear dress better. Ricky and Kit seemed to work well together, but their design was lacking.

Rami, it looks like the same thing again:

In the end, Kit went home. The design looked cheap and unimaginative. I wish it had been Ricky, but Kit was the team leader so she took the hit.
Sad to see Kit go:

Christian and Chris proved fabulous enough win. Their over the top, truly avant garde look complete with 45 yards of fabric and a well matched corresponding look won them an ad in Elle magazine.

Could there have been a better team for this challenge:

These pictures are beautiful. Way better than on television.

That last one certainly has the best ready-to-wear sibling. The avant garde one reminds me of a McQueen dress. http://www.metmuseum.org/toah/images/hb/hb_2003.462_av1.jpg

Christian used to work for McQueen and for Westwood.

Not having cable, I haven't seen this show, but I love Christian based solely on working for McQueen.
