It’s Project Runway night, and we still haven’t talked about who we love (Shirin for the win, people) or plus-sexy designer Qristyl Frazier. She was featured before the season on Tom and Lorenzo’s blog and Fat and Fab Chic, where Fabby said:
I absolutely love this show, it is definitely among my top five on my can’t miss TV list. I love the creativity and vision that each designer brings to the show. Watching them create always ignites my passion for fashion on a whole new level. I always wished I possessed the skill to create fashion masterpieces of my own. But since I do not, I always watch in envy of the designs the contestants conceptualize and create. This season I feel I have a whole new reason to watch. I am a champion of designers who don’t shun the idea of creating art for a larger canvas, so to speak. I hope her presence in some small way will bring some inspiration to plus size fashion.
In the first episode, Qristyl said, “I don’t call it plus-sized, I call it plus-sexy!” Although I can’t help but love the sentiment, as the Project Rungay boys pointed out:
Can we just say, that from a former copy editor’s perspective that drives Tom completely nuts? It makes no sense. If she had said “I don’t call it plus-sized, I call it SEXY-sized,” THAT makes perfect sense. And a cute little tagline. “Plus-sexy?” That doesn’t mean anything.
You can see Qristyl’s second design here. I liked the second a lot better than the first, although I still don’t think she’s as talented as my girl Jessica Biffi. Have you guys been watching the show? What do you think of the designers so far?
