Welcome to the â€œProject Runwayâ€ Season 8Â - EpisodeÂ 2Â â€œLive Blogâ€ here on Gather. Stick around for updates in the comments section during the show.
Before we get started, here's a quick recap of what happened on the Season Premiere last Thursday night. Project Runway started off with a twist, with 17 designers instead of the usual 16. In the end, after a challenge where the designers had to use items from each other' suitcases for their designs, only one contestantÂ was eliminated. (This in spite of the fact that Heidi hinted that more than one might go home.)
Michael Kors and Nina Garcia were back in full force, with Kors calling Casanova's look something that would be worn by a "pole dancer in Dubai." In the end, Gretchen won the elimination. The bottom three were McKell, Casanova, and Ivy. McKell ended up going home.
Here are the 16 Designers left afterÂ the "Season Premiere" of "Project Runway" Season 8. Let's watch and see how they fare this week:
Casanova - Bottom 3 - Ep. 1
Gretchen Jones - Winner - Ep. 1 & Ep. 2
