Kelly Dempsey has come a long way from her deli roots. In Thursday’s episode, the first half of the finale, she welcomes Tim to her home/design studio for critiques on her New York Fashion Week collection.
Tim visits all the designers in tonight’s episodes, but none of them are quite like his visit to Springfield, Massachusetts, Kelly’s hometown.
Not only has Kelly not slept for days because she’s so excited to see Tim again (we get it), but she also uses some phrase about leaving an “ass in the wind” that is the most Kelly thing we’ve heard yet. Watch the exclusive clip above to see the full exchange and get a sneak peek at her collection.
Project Runway airs at 9 p.m. ET on Lifetime.
