Season 5 started last week and I didn't want to admit it at first but todays episode convinced me that this seasons competitors are ummm ... not project runway material. I am liking the new people more and more but as far as their work: I feel like they are all trying too hard to introduce fresh ideas into the fashion world and on the way forgot to take a look at their complete garment and judge it as a whole. Some of the peices are flat out amateur. I would like for all of them to prove me wrong on next weeks episode because so far it has been a hot tranny mess (as my all time favorite Christian would say)
Moving on, I JUST found out that Project Runway will be moving to Lifetime and I don't know how I feel about that just yet. Heidi Klum says it will be shot in L.A. for about half of the season and it will have a "Hollywood flair". She also claims that the concept of the show will be the same but that it will have a "face-lift" But wait, What's Bravo going to do??
No worries a new a new show called Fashion House will be filling in the whole that Project Runway is leaving behind. It is based on a U.K series. Entertainment Weekly reports that the competitors "replicate the workings of the fashion business through a fashion house. Teams of designers will live together and work to create an entire line — rather than just individual pieces — that has the potential to be purchased by commercial buyers."
No set date has been posted for the premiere but I will post as soon as I find out!
I can't wait!
