Project Runway's BACK!

Okay Deb and all of you Project Runway style mavens! It's baaa-aaaack! One of my fave designs is Michael's above--out of coffee filters!

I think this season's designers are better technically all around from what I've seen of the show so far. Last year's had quite a few dicey ones and I didn't think they were as good as the first season's. What PR has proven time and time again is that if you are not technically proficient--as in, you can't actually construct a garment--you will not make it through this show.

I love PR. Tim Gunn is the man.

I thought it was so great last night. Totally enjoyed watching it. Wow. That picture of the coffee filter dress is quite outstanding. It is lovely. With so many designers, I don't think we got to appreciate some of the nice pieces. Instead we had to suffer through more and more shots of the hideous creation that Vincent made. Arg.

Coffee filters. Huh. It would look love in fabric. =) Or maybe we'll see it at the Oscars . . . in coffee filters! Thanks for sharing.

I loved the coffee filter one too! I thought it would be totally wearable if it were made of pleated fabric bits instead of coffee filters!

Also I loved the coat with the "fur" collar and the sparkly dangly bits around the hem.

I so agree with you, Elle. I really love the possibilities from this group of artists. Can't wait for the next show.

Isn't Michael wonderful? I thought the coffee filter dress was perhaps the most creative of the bunch, and it WORKED... maybe not in the rain, but it worked.

And my condolences on the heat...thank Heavens I'm up here in Maine, where it was "usual" DC muggy.... 89 and 95 percent humidity with no a/c, but only for a day. Now back to normal.

Any time you feel the urge, head north and visit {g}. Cheers, Sarah

I too love project runway. I've been playing catch up because I didn't realize the new season had begun. I can't imagine being a designer on this show, too grueling. Couldn't believe that guy got kicked off. I think he deserved it. He knew the rules! But what a bunch of tattle tells!
