At the Atlas, Anya and Kimberly are still recovering from the menswear challenge and their brush with elimination on the previous week of Project Runway. Josh M., back to his old sassy self, comments that at this point in the competition everyone should be up to the challenge of menswear. And speaking of challenge….On the runway Heidi faces the designers asking, “Are any of you surprised that you’re still here?” (Bert’s the only one who ‘fesses up.) She leaves them with the enigmatic, “Look to the past for your inspiration.” And off to Parson’s where Tim is waiting with Heather Archibald of Piperlime to give them their instructions. The Challenge: The designer’s must create a look that embodies ‘70s sophistication without being too literal or too retro. The budget is $100 and the winning look will be produced and sold online at Piperlime.
