Anthony Ryan vs. Ivy Laura Kathleen vs. Uli Emilio vs. Joshua

Winning Designers in bold.

Note: Although Emilio's design was named the winning design of his and Joshua's challenge, the judges also considered Joshua's work very good, and therefore didn't consider him for elimination. Conversely, although Emilio had the high score between him and Joshua, his design wasn't considered quite as good as Anthony Ryan's or Uli's, and the judges agreed during their deliberation that he was not the winner. Ivy makes history in Project Runway by surviving three consecutive Bottom Two appearances.

WINNER: Anthony Ryan
