Project Runway Season 7
Project Runway Season 7 premieres Thursday, January 14th at 10PM EST.
Yes... they're back... Tim Gunn, Heidi Klum and these 16 DESIGNERS...
It would be an understatement to say I'm excited. I'm beyond excited.
Fresh faces. New inspiration. Fabulous creations. And talent... raw, utter talent.
16 new designers will embark on the adventure of their lives... create new life from fabric (and other materials) each week. It's something that is so awe-inspiring to watch. It takes a very special person, with a very special talent to visualize, sketch and then create something into life form.
And as each passing week goes by... you begin to see pieces of the designers in each of their pieces. That, to me, is the most fun part of the show... being able to see and make the connection from that specific person to a specific garment. It's amazing to see... that regardless of how much they push themselves into creating something, their fingerprint is still within it - somewhere, somehow. I remember truly seeing that with Carol Hannah, Irina and Althea.
As I did last season before the premiere, I went through and "met" each of the designers at myLifetime.com. There is some fabulous footage of them at home... of them in their closets... and of their casting shoots. And my personal favorite, Lifetime captured the phone calls to each of the designers letting them know that they "were on the show!" To hear the excitement and astonishment in their voices, it was an incredible thing.
These designers live and breathe and have such a passion for fashion. All of them embody something unique and special... and I cannot wait to "meet" and see each of them in the upcoming weeks on Project Runway.
I had a little fun... after watching their videos, I thought it would be fun to quickly "tag" each designer and how I envisioned their upcoming collections:
Seth Aaron - Edgy
Maya Luz - NYC Chic

And so... as the delightful Tim Gunn says, "Make it work!"
And bring it ON!
