'Project Runway' recap: Death of a Seamstress
When Joanna comes to visit, she says that she thinks this is one of the most exciting challenges that the show has had (I agree!). I think she purposefully tries to frighten Austin about his design though and that doesn't seem very nice. She tells Kara that her work doesn't seem ambitious enough. That's kind of true. Joanna says that she was in a non-professional production of Godspell once upon a time. After she leaves, Kara starts bawling.
After the initial fitting, Mondo decides that he's going to have remake his look. He's having nightmares about Cynthia Rowley's critique of his look last week. In all, the designers seem kind of fatigued. Mondo explains that acknowledging that he's stuck makes him able to really conquer a challenge, which I think says a lot about his process and confidence.
Austin has a conflict with Jerell about the use of the sewing machines, but it seems like much ado about nuthin'. The show has really dropped the concept of learning about the models, hasn't it? Jerell says that Mila's look is "girl who can't get into the club." Ouch.
