Project Runway: Week in Review

One Size Does Not Fit All

Woo-hoo! Another season of Project Runway started last night and we are giddy with glee!

My absolute favorite part of this season is that they are using models with REAL bodies–sizes 0-22. All shapes, sizes, figures and skin colors are represented. This put a spin on things, and the designers were actually HAPPY with the decision, despite a few inappropriate comments from Chacha, which seemed innocent enough I suppose.

I also really enjoyed that the designers are using Frixion marking pens this season to sketch their designs. I wonder if they will start using them to mark on fabric, which is how I like to use them! They erase with heat from your iron! Super cool.

The challenge: Create a runway-worthy look that showcases your point of view as a designer.

My favorite look of the night? This shimmery seemingly embroidered number by Ayana.

Her point of view is “modest chic” and I completely fell in love with it! She didn’t get a critique, but was “safe” to move forward in the competition.

Winner? Deyonte! His large-scale print was loved by all, despite initial reservations from Tim at the critique. I loved what he did and his model looked stunning.

Poor Chacha. He really missed the mark. His garment looked like a sack with scrunchies attached to it. Bye, bye Chacha!

Clearly, his model is not thrilled with the result, either.

I’m really pulling for Kenya, Brandon and Margarita. I also think Samantha has promise. Overall, I think this group has real potential now that Chacha is gone.

Let’s see what happens next week!

    I was watching but after the last episode I am sad to say that I am done. I have watched project runway since season 1 but this season the designers are vindictive and rude. Claire was wrong to do what she did but the 2 who started the drama should of been sent home also. My opinion is michael and margarita are rude. They need to out there big boy and girl pants on and own what they started not say oh boo ho I didn’t mean to get you kicked off. Just watch the next episode she is all bubbly. They should of said something in private but I guess they wanted some attention. Karma is real.

    In previous seasons, the model for the losing designer also left the show. Is it the same this season? I liked a number of the designs in the first show.

    It would be nice if they included curvy petites as well. Actually, any petites would be a start. I know lots of people 5′ and under.

    I love Project Runway and am on “pins and needles” waiting for the new season to start. I think this season is off to a good start using all sizes of models, now they need some short ones. I was very happy to see ChaCha leave. I did not think he clothing looked good when I saw his interview to be on the show.

    LOVE Project Runway even though it’s obvious they pick some people just for the drama they bring. I actually watch Kawaii on NPK television sometimes and Chacha would fit right in there. Not so much here in the states designing for a broad audience. And, YES, love the models in all sizes. Too many designs for 6′ tall women who weigh 120 with no breasts. Nice to see some models who have already gone through puberty!
