Project Runway Season 11 Episode 2–“Let's Have a (Ping Pong) Ball!”
Season 11, Episode 2: Let's Have a (Ping Pong) Ball!
Our first week challenge due Thursday, February 7 (midnight your time):
The "Project Runway" designers get to spend a few hours working in Susan Sarandon's bar/ping-pong lounge/restaurant (Spin) before they're tasked with their next big challenge. The goal: create cohesive, fashionable, upbeat new uniforms for SPiN's coed serving staff and ball boys.
Translation: Design a piece of jewelry relating to sports, if you like - ping pong- specifically!
“Burned out copper, torch-fired enamel, ping pong ball, alcohol inks”
“The small fresh water pearls are like small balls and the green thread like the ping pong table color. The pin itself looks in a way like the racket.”
Our next challenge:
Season 11, Episode 3: IT'S THE HEIDI KLUM CHALLENGE. DUN DUN DUNNNNN
Challenge due Thursday, February 14 (midnight your time) Happy Valentine's Day!
Heidi goes on to tell the designers that as a team, they'll be designing garments for the launch of her "very feminine and sensual" scent, "Surprise." Each team will be responsible for designing four garments for her "Surprise" TV and print ad, and two looks for a press event. After all a woman needs options, right? Or to put it in Heidi terms: "I'm a little picky"
Translation: Create a piece of jewelry for Heidi based on the design of her perfume bottle.
Make it work!
