Am I the only one here obsessed with Project Runway? I didn’t think so. (If you want to talk about this season and whether you love or hate Elisa, Christian, and that one guy who looks like David Brent, we can dish in the comments.)
Lisa in Ypsilanti alerts us to the existence of Canadian Project Runway (please tell me this is out on DVD) and their recent very cool challenge: design two swimsuits, one for a plus-size model and one for a thin model. (To see the designs, click on Episode 8 in the Photo Gallery.)
I think it’s a great challenge, and a great way to incorporate plus-size design into the show. Knowing nothing about the designers and just going by the photo gallery, I think Stephen’s designs are a disaster. He appears to have merely swathed his models in sheets and gone back to bed. (Without sheets, I guess.) Kendra’s models both look like refugees from Moulin Rouge. And I enjoy Marie Genevieve’s superhero-themed looks. What do you guys think? Did any Canadians out there see the show?
