Thursday after work I was able to sit down and watch the
First look special and Episode 1 of Project Runway!!!
There are a few contestants I'm now on the fence about and there are a couple I totally misunderstood in my intitial judgement
The competitors were awakened from deep sleep and forced to go to the studio in their nightware and 1 of their bedsheets
The challenge was to make a garment using only what they came in with and the bedsheet. They were given embellishments such as feathers and lace and were provided with Rit Dye's as well.
Here are my favorite highlights
Turns out some of Anya's work in her portfolio was designed by her but not sewn by her. She had only been sewing for 4 months before auditioning for the show. She pulled of making her first pair of trousers but struggled through the process. She managed to impress the judges despite her lack of experience
Bert is the sweetest thing! This 50-something year old man is making his come back to the Fashion Industry after like a 20 year break. He is my Oldy but Goody! He dazzled me with this dress he made out of his checkered orange boxers and his bedsheet. I'm rooting for Bert to make his mark on his return to fashion! By the way, he won the first challenge and has immunity in the next challenge! Go Bert!
