Project Runway: Designing (for) Women

Originally posted 09/16/2011 07:00AM

Lessons learned on Thursday's Project Runway: a man can't always define his significant other's personal style. And the only body part men think to highlight is, well, boobs. At least that's what happened when nine guys were invited into the workroom and teamed with designers to create garments for their wives and girlfriends.

Every designer chose a man to work with, thinking Thursday's challenge was about menswear. But as it turned out, contestants had to rely on these males to describe their ladies' personal style and preferences, and then take them to Mood to shop for suitable fabrics. Some designers fell right into step with their clients, but others, namely Olivier, had a very difficult time taking orders from another person.

In the workroom, the men had "unique" ways of describing their loved ones' tastes. The only thing Bert's client, Anthony, could focus on was his wife's ample chest, while Anya's partner, Mike, couldn't seem to name a color his wife didn't like.
