Bryce Black has become the latest designer to leave the ninth season of Project Runway. The 26-year-old from Portland was eliminated from the Lifetime competition on Thursday night following a challenge which saw the designers creating looks for a group of real women based on what the women's partners thought they would wear. He devised a structured pink dress for his female client Janine, which she wanted to wear to a wedding. However, while she liked the creation, the judges thought it was poorly fitted and had too many details with its giant pockets, design on the hem, black belt, and details on the back. Bryce said: "I'm proud that I took a risk even though it wasn't right. I just wanted to show everybody what a great designer I am and I don't feel I ever got there."

New York -- Fashion Week and TV came together Friday (Sept. 9) at Lincoln Center for "Project Runway's" finale, with nine designers presenting their collections, ranging from the elegant to the strange.
Though no one theme ruled the runway, the event featured an abundance of flowing clothes; some accessorized with blue wrists and gladiator cuff bracelets. Metallic dresses and shorts remain popular as do completely sheer tops. Apparently, for now, bras and camisoles are out.

Seen And Not Heard
This week's competition involves working with children. *shudder* But wait! These aren't ordinary kids, they're art students, so the annoyance level is at a reasonable decibel. The kids create a painting for each designer, and that designer has to use the painting to create something avant-garde for the runway.

This week's competition takes the designers to a pet store, where Tim Gunn tells them that this is one of Project Runway's "unconventional challenges." Wait, aren't most of them? The have to design an outfit made entirely of pet products, but makes a point again that it should be "unconventional," something that one poor Mormon boy should've listened to.
Honey Badger Don't Give A Sh*T
Bert Keeter became an instant audience favorite with his win last week, but apparently he believes that "immunity" means "i'll just take this challenge off." He was shockingly apathetic, and even admitted as much. »
