According to the official website of “Project Runway” the 6th week episode is called ‘Senior Fling.’ The synopsis is right here - “Air Date: 2/28/2013.

Red carpet experts Joan Rivers and Melissa Rivers serve as guest judges.”
Heidi Klume keeps stressing ‘team work’ to the fashion design contestants. Michelle who has been complaining all season & there is no end coming from her constant whining. She was teamed with Patricia & Layanna this week. Michelle targets Patricia again with her jealousy & anger. She said, “I just hope I don’t work with Patricia”, “90% of her designs are crap.” Patricia said only this about Michelle, “I love Michelle’s sense of design.”
Michelle & Layanna received high scores & Patricia was saved by them with her low score. They did not however receive the highest numbers. Heidi told all three of them that they didn’t work as a team. Michelle & Layanna complained on camera about Patricia which didn’t look like they wanted to help her at all.
