What the Elle? Summary

Nina explains to the final four the importance of fashion editorials and then gives them their next challenge. The designers are to create, quite freely, an outfit of their choice. The outfits must convey their personal points of view. They are each given a sheet on which they must write three words that describe what they're about as designers and that will be represented by their completed outfits. The difficulty in this challenge is managing to impress the judges with something unexpected while still remaining true to oneself as a designer.

Project Runway Show Summary

Eager to give aspiring designers a chance to break into the notoriously difficult-to-crack fashion world, supermodel Heidi Klum will once again head a panel of industry luminaries, including top women's and men's wear designer Michael Kors and Elle Magazine fashion director Nina Garcia, who will serve as judges and industry mentors charged with selecting and molding the budding designers. There will also be guest judges each week based on the specific challenge. Tim Gunn, Chair of the Parsons The New School For Design, will return to guide the contestants through each of their challenges.

The winning designer will walk away with $100,000 in seed money to help them launch their own line. The winner's designs will be featured in a spread in ELLE, photographed by the magazine's world-renowned Publication Director, Gilles Bensimon. They will also receive a mentorship from the Banana Republic Design Team.
