On Part 1 of the Project Runway finale, the designers are sent home to create a 12-piece collection for New York Fashion Week.
Carol Hannah is working in upstate New York on what she describes as wearable sci-fi garments, Irina is working on a collection of drab-colored knits in Manhattan, and Althea is creating even more enormous knits in Dayton, Ohio.
Michael Kors and Nina Garcia try to make up for their absences all season by putting in some face time in the finale workroom. And in a not-so-shocking twist, Tim and Heidi announce that the designers have to make a 13th look — with help from auf'd designers.
