'Project Runway': Designer Breaks Down In Tears Over A Pink Jacket (VIDEO)

On "Project Runway," one designer was moved to tears. But it wasn't his elimination that reduced Daniel to such an emotional state. It was that he had to destroy a pink jacket he had made. He was clearly very attached to it.

When Tim Gunn came in to assess everyone's progress, he warned that the pink might not be working for Daniel. He'd wanted to avoid making a dress, but then found himself doing exactly that. Even talking about it later in a confessional caused the tears start welling up in his eyes.

"It’s like, you know, when you make something that you really love, but you know you have to destroy it?" he said.

Luckily, he was partnered with Michelle. Despite not even having a single bit of clothing for her model when they came in for fittings, she was ready to go by Runway Day. And then, she and Daniel won the runway show with Michelle coming in as the overall winner. Daniel was safe, despite his own pink dress not blowing anyone away.

Perhaps he should reconfigure that dress back into the jacket he so adored. His emotional connection to it "makes no sense" to Gossip and Gab.

In the end, Samantha and Richard fell into the bottom and it was Samantha who was booted from the competition. See who goes home next on "Project Runway," Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET on Lifetime.
