Project Runway: All 3 Black Designers Survive Third Challenge

The third episode of Project Runway Season 5 had the remaining 14 contestants using elements of New York City as their inspiration, Tim Gunn learning the catchphrase “holla at ‘cha boy,” and all three black contestants advancing to the next round.

Jerrell didn’t earn much cred even though his dress was more polished than others; Korto landed in the safe zone with her well-made, but kinda boring jumpsuit; and Terri (pictured) received high marks from Heidi and celebrity guest judge Sandra Bernhard for her colorful and gauzy dress.

With Terri, Korto and Jerrell doing so well on Project Runway and the success of the July “All-black” issue of Italian Vogue, this summer is turning out to be a magical time for blacks in fashion.
