Fabric Spray paints
Last week on Project Runway, the designers had to make “wearable art” inspired by “aerosol art, ” more commonly known as “graffiti.” In this variation on the textile challenge, the contestants had to spray paint a design on some fabric and then use the results to make an outfit. Emilio won and Suede was sent home.
The following morning, Carolyn simply tells them that the next challenge will be an interactive one, and then sends them off to Joanna, who will fill them in on the details. Joanna introduces the designers to Sandra Micek, an executive from USA Today. Together they explain the challenge. USA Today has collected photographs sent in by fans of Project Runway via Twitter. Some of the pictures were sent by fans from other countries, including Spain, Russia, and Indonesia. The designers are to pick a photograph and then make an outfit inspired by it. Sandra also tells them to think about the story behind their picture, and asks them, “What is your headline? ”
As there are only two computers with USA Today’s photolibrary downloaded into them, only two designers can make their choices at a time. Since Emilio won the last challenge, he gets to go first, and he invites Casanova to use the other computer.
Before the two men start searching the photolibary, Sandra tells the designers that the winner of the challenge will be featured in USA Today. Emilio picks a picture of a young girl who reminds him of his niece. Casanova chooses a photograph of a black person in a white, androgynous outfit. He decides to make something similarly androgynous.
