Ping Wu enters the girls' apartment. Janeane introduces herself and they hug. Ping seems really excited. She is 33 and from Chicago. She tells us that she is an American-trained physical therapist and Italian-trained fashion designer. She works as a physical therapist by day, so she knows how the body moves. Oh my shit, thank you WORLD! Is this my new Diana Eng? Is it? If it is, I'm just going to go ahead and decree that this may be the third best season of Project Runway ever. I love the weirdos. So, we see video of Ping's work on a runway. It has, to coin a possibly meaningless/hopefully evocative phrase, a kind of flowing geometry to it. There's a sort of Mondrian thing going on in her prints and there's an angularity that is softened with long skirts and loose fit. She says that she is always looking for the simplest cuts to liberate body movement. The mannequins are flipped to the tits. They are ecstatic. I know, girls!
