As a fashion freak, anything to do with the industry tickles my fancy, and Project Runway does exactly that. I love everything about this show. As Heidi always says, in fashion, one day you’re in and the next day you’re out. Every Project Runway season you will find me tuned in to see which designers make the all-star judge panel say wow and which ones make them say “Auf Weidersehen.”
Whether designers are asked to make a beautiful and stylish garment from a potato sack or a stack of newspapers, the judges are never forgiving with those who do not measure up! Heidi’s frank critiques are always entertaining and my favorite shoe and accessory designer, Michael Kors, never shies away from calling the kettle black. And who could forget the budding designers’ mentor, Tim Gunn?! His favorite tip? Just “make it work.” And while a few do make it to the top, others are faced with a serious reality check. What some of these designers consider to be “commercial” is truly comical, and Ping’s unfinished piece that gave everyone a flash of her model’s buttox this season showed the entertainment value that comes as a consequence of each challenge’s time frame.
I always have my favorite designers, and love hearing what the judges have to say about them, and yes, there are always a few designers I could do without (Ping, I’m sorry, but bare butts aren’t my thing!). So, as I follow the show play-by-play and make predictions of who Season 7’s winner will be, get to know the designers and discover your favorite at http://www.mylifetime.com/shows/project-runway/project-runway-designers.
