Anyone else here like Project Runway?

Post by boswellbaxter » Wed October 15th, 2008, 11:45 pm

I don't watch much TV, but I do like Bravo's "Project Runway," where fashion designers have to complete different design challenges each week and where one designer gets sent home each week before three finalists compete at a big finale at New York's Fashion Week. Anyone else here a fan?

Yes I am. And I'm watching to see who wins tonight. I have to say I like the vintage girls stuff the best.

Yes, we started watching Project Runway last season. A few weeks after we started watching it, I caught my husband calling clothes "garments." We are TIVOing the show tonight because we want to watch the presidential debates.

Project Runway is one of the few TV shows I watch. My daughter Gracie (she's 18) and I cuddle up together every week with popcorn to watch it.

I liked Korto's collection the best - color-wise and wearable-wise, but Leeanne's was pretty and very innovative.

I liked all three collections, but I think Leanne's could have used a little more variety. I've liked most of the stuff she did earlier in the show, though, so I was pleased to see her win. Tonight, I actually liked Kenley's collection best.

I've been watching _Project Runway_ ever since it started, and find it a great deal of fun. Tim Gunn is terrific to watch, and one of the most polished people I have ever seen. I did like Kenley's stuff, especially the hand painted clothing, the best, but she needs a bit more to her background, she really needs to take that fashion history course as TG mentioned. But I think we'll be seeing more of her in the future.

And there's to be a new season of Top Chef come November.

See and thats the thing. If I remember correctly I thought she did a lot of ruffles n stuff throughout the entire season. So she's a ruffle girl. I still like Kenley's and would buy some of the clothes from her but I like teh vintage look.

My other favorite show! And I don't even like to cook; it's just fun to see the creative process and the general bitchery.

I love watching cooking shows, I've had quite a few AHA! moments, and try to cook as often as my strength will allow -- and then, it's watch out!

Yes, the bitchery on that show is amazing. But not surprising -- after all, good chefs (and namely anyone who makes things that are very good) are very passionate about what they do. Put in the fact that they work in hot, small, kitchens, are under lots of stress, and they have very sharp knives at hand, I'm amazed that no one has commited murder yet.

Has anyone else read Anthony Bourdain's books on cooking?
