Michael is quick on the sewing machine and tends to do well on Project Runway’s most difficult challenges, but we’d be naive to think that he’s perfect. Here he reveals the challenge he feared would send him home.
Michael Costello tells SheKnows that the most stressful challenge for him was definitely the lights challenge, the most recent Project Runway episode to challenge the all-star designers this season.
“I struggled a lot with that one; I couldn’t commit to a design because I have my own personal commitment issues.” No, he’s not referring to relationships. “I tend to over-buy fabric just in case I need to resort to something else ,” admits Michael. This seems like a safe move, but he explains why the latter was true for him during the lights challenge.
“Plan B turns into plan C… D, E,” he laughs. “Sometimes I just go right back to the original thing.” Unfortunately for Michael, on this particular challenge it caused a setback when it came to time. Luckily the designer had a few wins under his belt that kept him safe.
