New York–After seasons of screaming at the television set, “Project Runway” finally answered our call for an accessories-only challenge.
The show hosted its first-ever hat challenge, showing definitively that it is possible to create an entire outfit around an accessory. Contestants got to meet British milliner extraordinaire Philip Treacy, who assigned each of them one of his outlandish, sculptural creations. They had one day to create a look that complemented the hat, without being too “matchy matchy.”
Demonstrating how precious his designs are, Treacy fitted the hat onto each model himself.
