I’m finally feeling like watching the premiere of Project Runway. I can’t believe it is season 14! We start with the new designers in Madison Square Garden. There are large pieces of cloth strewn throughout stadium seats and the cloth grabbing begins. They can make anything they want, as long as they use the cloth that they grabbed. Oddly, three people did not bring any sort of sewing supply kits. Looks like they will just have to borrow from others. We certainly have an eclectic mix of designers this season.
Merline is on my last nerve. I can’t imagine trying to work near her. I already want to fast forward through her scenes. Merline is apparently sewing Muslims. She said it ten times before Tim finally corrected her.
I’m so glad that Tim Gunn is back rather than those women who have been mentoring the last few seasons. Tim Gunn is the whole point of the show. When I taught elementary school, I found the phrases “carry on” and “make it work” quite useful. When marching my brood around (I always had a very orderly line) we would stop at each corner and make sure all the ducklings were together, then I’d tell the line leader, “carry on!” in my best Tim Gunn voice.
I’m trying to root for my homeboy, Edmond. But I don’t really like his dress so far. Neither does Tim, who is pretty harsh with his opinion on Edmond’s dress. He calls it “dreary” and “the antithesis of joy.” Get it together, home boy.
Kelly’s ginormous hoop earrings, Olivia Newton John headband, and mussed hair gives us an idea about her sloppy construction skills. Tim was pretty much disappointed in everyone. Kelly decides to scrap her whole dress and use another fabric that is easier to work with. Edmond also changes his entire look. Lots of panic in the sewing room.
Edmond’s dress is much improved with his little black dress with the neon green lining on the train. There is some hideous crap going down this runway. It will be hard to pick the three worst. I kind of like Ashleigh’s long yellow maxi skirt, but it seems to make the model look bigger than she is.
Edmond is in the top three! Merline is in the top three. Ashleigh is also in the top three. The bottom three are Duncan, Blake and Hanmiao. The judges don’t seem to like Duncan and his laid back attitude. The designers are all shocked that Duncan was in the bottom. Many of them thought he was in the top three.
Zac Posen is kind of an asshole.
Ashley won! I’m so happy for her. She and Edmond were my initial favorites. Duncan was “auffed.”
Who is watching this season with me?
