It was the second show for the season and Project Runway Season 9 had us at the edge of our seats. With the second challenge taking place at a PetLand Discounts store, the creators of Project Runway are back to really making the show fun and crazy with the unconventional challenge.
Using the unconventional materials from a pet store, one could only image what kind of craziness or fabulosity the 15 remaining designers, especially the Caribbean delegate Miss Anya Ayoung-Chee would create. With a $300 budget and only 30 minutes to shop, designers were picking up pet food, bird seeds, shampoos, scoops, leashes, dog beds and of course….wee wee pads! JEEZANAGES!
This second week’s unconventional challenge surely showed the designers’ creative side, especially when it came to their technique and execution. And though they did not shop at Mood Fabrics, I must admit, I was literally blown away by a couple of the creations.
Bert was quite hilarious last night, flaunting his immunity by singing, “I’m glad I’ve got immunity, doo-da, doo-da!” The unconventional challenge was surely not his beat, and even though his extremely simple dog bed frilly dress was too simple (and kinda lazy), Viktor and Bryce‘s stripped tissue looking /wee wee pad dresses were the worse! But apparently not as bad as Josh C‘s creation…he got the boot!
Top of the list, Anthony’s beautiful bird seed mini-dress with the striking neckline! However, Olivier’s very chic hamster bedding dress (which should be in a fall collection somewhere) beat out Anthony’s to win TOP DOG of the design competition for show #2.
I really give it up to those Project Runway season 9 contestants who can “think outside the box.” Some definitely constructed some very creative and fashionable master pieces.
Last night, Anya created another chic two piece ensemble, featuring another show stopping top, this time made of dog toys! Congrats Anya, you are now leading as fan favorite with 29%, Anthony is second with 18% and Bert comes in next with 15%.

Check out this video as Tim Gunn critiques Anya on Show 2:
One of the contestants in the show when dying his material said, “This is worse than washing by the river!” *DWL! What does he know about washing by ah river???
And when time was running out, Anya was heard saying “Doh say dat nah!” Pure kicks!
Tim Gunn speaking on Viktor’s dress saying “Wee wee pads into a depends dress!” #CLASSIC
Last night’s celebrity guest judge was Stacey Bendet of Alice + Olivia, next week we will see Kim Kardashian guest judge as MOKO JUMBIES (stilt walkers) take the stage!
