Project Runway — The Trendsetter Recap

by WindUpDoll I want the Project Runway perfume discussed at the top of this episode. Who wouldn’t want to smell like sweat, tears & Chinese food? Ok, I guess it depends on WHAT Chinese food. Is it Wong’s Wok fried rice with greasy gravy? Then no, I don’t want it. It’s time for the tedious model selection, but apparently only Jack gets to pick. He chooses to mess Ricky up and take his model. So Ricky doesn’t get to pick, he just gets Jack’s leavings. Back in the workroom, Tim and Nina are there to introduce the next challenge. With […]

Project Runway Gets All Butch in Man ‘O Fashion

I don’t know if Project Runway is trying to appeal to a wider audience, or just trying to vary the challenges a bit, but this episode was a bit of a break from the typical fashion format.

Because the teases for the upcoming episode promised me a Jack announcement that would be shocking — SHOCKING, I tell you. Did I get that? No. I got dooky squat, was what I got. Oh, you’ll see the tease as they open the show, but you’ll get no resolution or any sort of leatherwork-help-getting-cheating or pattern-book-hiding satisfaction. Grr. So we have the blah, blah, “Why did she have to […]

Guten Tag, Project Runway, Guten Tag

Wednesday nights have been reminding me that I’ll never be tall enough, or young enough, to model. Now Wednesday nights will remind me just how far removed my life is from a fashion designer. When I watch Project Runway, I’m generally in awe because I have NO idea how to do what they do. I can hem my pants, provided they’re not really good pants and they’re not lined. I have a Handi Stitch, although I’ve only used it once. That’s probably one time too many for a Project Runway contestant. And this year’s batch is, well, fierce. At least […]
