Jason Crafts Another 'Unfinished Mess' on 'Project Runway' (VIDEO)


Running out of time on yet another task meant curtains for arrogant competitor Jason Troisi on this week's 'Project Runway' (Thu., 9PM on LIFETIME). During this week's Marie Claire challenge, the hat-wearing reprobate employed "user-friendly" safety pins instead of buckles on his spacey silver "infinity" dress and left gaping holes both in his outfit and in the audience's confidence in his sense of fashion and good taste.


"It's not working," said Marie Claire editor in chief Joanna Coles during the photo shoot. "It looks like a mistake, or a hole in the dress." Still, the designer from Greenwich, CT, insisted that these place-holding pins merely allowed the dress to be styled in many different ways, and fiddled with the negative fabric space while his model appeared to be wishing herself into oblivion.


Despite these setbacks, his self-assuredness remained high: "The judges have to look past these little closures because I'm not prototype Jack," Jason maintained. "I can't pop things out."


Nevertheless, Jason landed in a poorly-constructed heap down at the bottom two, and ultimately was swept out of the competition. "We were hoping to see more from you -- something more impressive," tsked Heidi. "But again, we got an unfinished mess."

I liked Jason - in the way of these shows, the longer they go on, the more outrageous the 'performers' become as they vie for screentime by being bigger and badder than everyone else. Jason was kinda quiet and understate - apart from the hat which was a wacky idea. I was sorry he went out, though the silver dress was awful. Is it right he is a menswear designer, as I heard one of the competitors say? If so, it was a shame he didn't do some really cool masculine outfits that gave some Mae West type glamour to the show. Anyhoo, I guess he's gone. I hope he does ok out of the show - I don't think he was any more 'arrogant' than any of the others really. He was just a wee bit out of his depth.
