Project Runway Season 11 Episode 6 Live Blog

project-runway-26Hello, fashion mavens! It’s again time for another installment of Needle and Thread: Fashion Victims Unit! But first, last week’s episode served up sadness in the form of a “let’s design for a country singer!” challenge.

As he noted at the time, two Senators were embroiled in a scandal over expenses (and in one case alleged criminality). Since then, the scandal has both deepened and widened.
