Project Runway Major Meltdown

Posted By: Terri

Lat night, Project Runway’s “Taylor Made Challenge”  should have been titled “Taylor Made  Meltdown.”Who can blame these overworked,overstressed, overtired designers as they try to create magic in challenges that offer less than a 24 hour window to create. It’s called a “creative process “for a reason. Week after week… having to design garments in less time than it takes to prepare a turkey dinner  can be so.o.o.o stressful.  As the competition continues, I have softened on a number of designers that I once wasn’t so fond of: (Elena and Gunnar) and grown a strong dislike to one’s I thought were amazing designers but lacked any sort of humanity (Ven-in the plus size model debackle).. My eyes are still closely fixed on Melissa, Sonja and  Chris.In the words of Tim Gunn-Carry On Designers!

Where is Project Runway Season 9?

Where-oh-where is Project Runway Season 9? I have searched the globe (well..maybe not the ENTIRE globe… but the entire internet) and have only come up with these very few snip-its of info:

Project Runway sent out audition notices to anyone who wanted to be considered for Season 9. The deadline for return entries was marked April 15, 2011.

Rumor on the web has it that Nina Garcia is to busy to return and “fierce” past Project Runway Winner and now successful designer   Christian Siriano will be taking her place?

Projected airing of Project Runway Season 9 could start (somewhere between June and July 2011) Gosh-that seems like an eternity.

P.S. Between you & I &Parsons Design -I wish they would head back to Bravo..Lifetime seems to be putting a pin cushion in this show. Not half as fun as it use to be…

Finally….What I wouldn’t give to hear Tim Gunn say: “Make it work” Lifetime Channel …Are you listening?!

Project Runway Season 7!

They’re ba.a.a.a.ck! Project Runway Season Seven begins January 14. I don’t know about you but I can’t wait. The Bravo replacement for Project Runway this past Season was “Launch My Line” and if that show didn’t beg for you to hit the snooze button on fashion, Project Runway (now on Lifetime) is sure to wake up the inner designer in all of us!

Heidi, Tim, Nina and Michael are all back and rightly settled in New York after being in Los Angeles for last season. …All I can say is..”Make it Work.”

Project Runway Finale…..finally!!!

Project Runway will finally wrap up the long awaited Season 6 this Thursday November 19. I don’t know about you but I thought the season dragged on longer  than a pair of broken heeled stilettos.walking the Red Carpet at the Oscars.

 Season 6 was moved to Los Angeles from New York. (If anyone is asking-bad move, very bad move! (I suggest you load a U-Haul with the Project Runway Set and floor-it until you see the Parsons School of Design back in NYC). The show seemed to lack the New York energy and vibe. The “addition” of celebrities to replace judges Nina Garcia and Michael Kors should have been nixed with the exception of Kerry Washington and Christina Agularia. Kerry and Christina were terrific with intelligent comments on the designs and suggestions for the designers. BUT Cindy Crawford seemed to hit the snooze alarm and appeared almost as a still life with nothing even remotely intelligent to add or offer. Thank goodness for our ever dependable Tim Gunn and lovable Heidi Klum (a model with a personality) to try to keep things moving…

SO here we are at the finale-Fashion Week at Bryant Park (which P.S. was now 3 seasons ago). No surprise that the final three are contestants Althea (very talented), “Mean Irina” (a girl with an attitude big enough to fill Bryant Park) and my personal favorite Carol Hannah. (she is a self taught designer with the tenacity, talent and professional  demeanor to make it in the design world! It’s been a stretch to reach the final episode but after all is said and done our Heidi will bid us “Alvederzane” until Season 7…we can only hope in moving the show back to New York-they can “Make it Work!”

Heide & Tim host Project Runway!

Tim Gunn and Heide Klum for Project Runway!

If you’ve been sitting on pin cushions waiting for the return of Project Runway Season Six-the wait is officially O.V.E.R.!

Heide Klum hosts with Fashion Mentor Extraordinaire Tim Gunn on  the Lifetime Network Thursday August 20, 2009.   Also along for the much awaited fashion competition are judges Nina Garcia, Michael Kors and a bevy of contestants waiting to know if their designs are “either  in or their  out.”

As the viewing audience who have waited patiently for what seems like a fashion eternity ( 2 complete fashion collections later)  I think we can all breath a sigh of relief and say ..We… are “so in.”

Welcome Back!
