Project Runway: Season 5: Episode 3
Heidi and Tim surely surprised the designers this week with a double Decker bus tour of New York City. The designers were puzzled until Tim announced that this weeks challenge would be to make an ensemble for a night on the town inspired by New York City at night. The designers each got a camera which they took photos to draw inspiration from. After the designers found their inspiration, they had a half hour and $100.00 to spend at Mood. When the designers returned to Parson's they quickly got to work. With their ensembles ready, the models hit the runway. The final 6 were Kenley,Keith,Terri,Emily,Leanne,and Jennifer. Leanne, Kenley, and Terri were the top three with Leanne's inspiration being a tree planter which got her the runner-up position. It was between Terri (with graffiti as her inspiration) and Kenley (with a tiled map as her inspiration). Kenley won for her creativity but, Terri got mad props for her ambitious backless dress. The unfortunate bottom three were Keith, Emily, and Jennifer. Keith with his toilet paper looking dress (Michael Kors' Comment), Emily with her busy salsa dancing (comment) dress, and Jennifer with her boring/safe dress. Emily was voted off with her "movement of New York City" inspired ruffle dress.
