It’s the time we’ve all been waiting for — or at least, the time I’ve been waiting for: this season’s unconventional materials challenge on “Project Runway.” And since it aired on December 19, it was fitting that the challenge was Christmas themed. So who slayed in “Sleigh the Runway,” and who was sent home with coal in their stocking? Find out below in our live blog with all the minute-by-minute developments as they happen.

Unconventional materials mean no trip to Mood for fabric and accessories this week. The designers had to scramble to collect Christmas decorations from around their penthouse and use them to create fashionable cocktail dresses for a holiday party. This competition is usually stressful enough even with familiar fabrics, but swapping out cotton and silk for tinsel, ornaments and ribbons makes matters worse.

I especially had my fingers crossed for Geoffrey Mac, who was overwhelmed in the first challenge of the season but wound up with one of the judges’ favorite looks, and was overwhelmed again in the second challenge but this time landed in the bottom two. More than anything he needed to get out of his own head.

I also hoped for glad tidings for Dayoung Kim, who was so hard on herself over the first two challenges that it literally landed her in the hospital. On the opposite end of the confidence spectrum, I asked Santa to bring Sergio Guadarrama a little more humility after he spent the last two challenges asserting how far above it all he already considers himself to be.

What did you think of the looks this week and the designers who sent them down the runway? Did the judges get it right? Did they miss the mark? Follow along below starting at 9:30pm (times listed are Eastern), and decide for yourself.
