If there’s one thing that every viewer of Project Runway knows, it’s that you don’t upset Tim Gunn. But that’s exactly what three new designers did on the premiere of season 14.
In the exclusive clip below, Tim makes his first workroom appearance, in which he announces that three designers—Merline Labissiere, Swapnil Shinde, and David Giampiccolo—came to the reality design show without tools. Tools seem like a pretty important part to making garments… Tim likens it to going on a long camping trip without toothpaste or shampoo (or some people might say “a tent”).
The designers will have to rely on the kindness of others (and presumably extra Mood money down the road) in order to complete the challenge. But based on their fellow contestant Lindsey Creel’s talking head, where she says they should just be sent home, the outlook might not be great.
Project Runway season 14 premieres Thursday, Aug. 6 at 9 p.m. ET on Lifetime.
