An Unconventional Recycling: Turning trash into treasure! Ellen March from Sew News gives us her take on the latest episode of Project Runway…

Wow! What a cool runway experience on this episode. I could have done without the “twin drama,” but maybe that’s because I have twins?

The challenge this week was to take unconventional materials from a recycling plant and create a cohesive 5-piece collection. It was the first team challenge of the season, and coming so soon after the premiere!


I had high hopes for this team from the start. It’s always nice to see a team working together and ready to rock without the clashing of ideas and attitudes. I was pretty convinced they were going to win even before they made anything. But alas, they were “safe” and got no critique. Kudzani’s look was my favorite of the group.



The winners! I also liked how this team worked together from the start. But I thought some of their looks weren’t as strong as Wabi-Sabi.


Ayana’s fringe overlay and dress with bottle cap covered buttons won the night. I wanted her to win last week, so YOU GO GIRL.



Samantha had a great look, and would have done well if she was on a different team. She is super positive and I’m looking forward to her doing well throughout the season. I kinda want to be her new BFF.


I just knew they would be on the bottom the moment the twin drama unfolded. Shawn kept making excuses and was so afraid of losing that she couldn’t pull it together. She should have gone home–if only because of her comments and attitude. But Sentell’s garbage bag dress couldn’t be ignored. He went home, so we’ll see what drama the twins cook up next week!


Who was your favorite this week?

    Kenya is my favourite as well, I could see myself wearing her clothes. I also like some of Batani’s stuff and I loved that gown that Deyonté made for the first challenge.

    Kenya is my favourite! I love her work and her personality. I’m rooting for her!
