Project Runway Season 12 EP12 Recap/Review

The semi-final episode. This challenge was the avant garde challenge. Designers were taken to a butterfly exhibit where they would take inspiration from the butterflies and from there design an avant garde look to secure their place in the final. Additionally, they were thrown a curve ball and asked to remake a losing look from one of the designers that were voted off previously this season.

There was no top and bottom three this episode, however there were two that secured a place in the final three and the remaining designers were to battle it out, en typical Project Runway style.

Two of Three

Two of the three designers that will be showcased at Mercedes Fashion Week will be Bradon McDonald, and Dom Streater.

I absolutely adored both looks! Bradon's avant garde look was inspired by the fluttering movement of the butterflies and so he created silk rolls that emulated the catching of the movement in one's peripheral vision. The corsetry in the back is stunning, and I can't seem to get over the draping and folds of the dress. Nevertheless, I am also in love with Dom's look. There is something quite oriental about her look and it could only have been her to mix and match those patterns successfully.

The designers to compete for the final spot

From top to bottom: Alexandria von BromssenHelen Castillo, and Justin LeBlanc. Justin's second look was actually his losing look, and whilst I'm not the biggest fan of this look, I commend him on his bravery and courage in choosing the look that resulted in his elimination.
