After making it so far in the season, Kara, who has been guest blogging for us, was finally sent packing — but she did fantastic throughout the show! Read Kara’s thoughts on getting sent home here.
How appropriate that the very byline of the episode was named, “Day by Day,” in tune with the musical Godspell. If I must, the challenge was about creating a garment for one of the characters. Now I would love to do a sing and dance and tell you what went down, but it’s the usual scoop: trip to Mood, sew, meltdown, sew some more, break a leg, break a needle — but I have decided this time to write about my Auf’ing. Sad to say it was my time to go.
The designer told us all about the tough competition — read on for her recap here!
Talk about the four seasons, this episode had it all! Let’s face it, you see Angela holding all these bags and you are thinking, “Amen, they are taking us from the mad house to Paris,” alas, that was not the surprise! I mean why would they want us to suffer any less than we already have? While we think the team challenge would have ruffled all our leaves, well here comes the HEAD TO HEAD Challenge!
New Yorkers would sooner give their limbs than the clothes off their backs, but that’s exactly what they did last night!
Handed with money, no time, (surprise, surprise!) and some serious chutzpah, (balls-for those that don’t know yiddish), we had to ask strangers for the clothes OFF THEIR BACKS, make them our muse and then create a fashion-forward look from this GARAGE sale — all 50% of it including fabric from MOOD, where we experience the true meaning of being friends — so cute!
Designer Kara Janx recaps last night’s episode for us, where the designers were told to design a look for supermodel Miranda Kerr in ONLY six hours! Get Kara’s first-hand, behind-the-scenes reaction!
I have sworn off gelato for life! We are asked to choose a gelato flavor, taste it, get a fabric swatch and design a garment inspired by it all in 6 HOURS! 6 hours — I could go shopping in Nieman Marcus for 6 hours and still find nothing to wear! What are there people thinking, or at the least what the HELL am I going to do with a dark chocolate swatch and a throat on fire?
Designer Kara Janx is recapping the show each week, giving us a behind-the-scenes look at what it was really like competing in front of the cameras the second time around — and on the second episode she said the whole cast dealt with a major time crunch, trying to create a couture gown in just 24 hours!
So I can tell you that watching myself panic through the entire episode 2 is not exactly a thrill, but handing us a challenge to design a couture gown in less than 24 hours is not excatly thrilling either! Having an ‘All Star’ label means, in PR terms, giving them the impossible, but in HUMAN terms, it’s like running the NYC marathon in 1 hour! I was convinced at times that they were going to feed us scorpions for lunch, just to see if we have what it takes! OH, OK back to Lincoln Center and the Opera and running around Mood Fabrics, trying to have a ‘MAKE IT WORK’ moment.

Okay, so here is the scoop: while I fretted and waited, and fretted and waited some more, Project Runway All-Stars finally started, AMEN!
I can say with complete certainty that what once started out as a little fashion competition in the infancy of reality television has grown into a national obsession and has forever changed my life, swearing off the very idea that I would never EVER put myself though Project Runway again, (or boot camp, bikini camp, HELL, whatever form of torture you can conjure up)! Well….
