Project Runway Season 10 premiered with no shortage of drama and “make it work” moments. We are excited to see the eclectic set of new designers and what they will send down the runway this season!
The episode kicked off with the traditional champagne toast and message from Heidi, Tim, Nina and Michael. Before getting to the fashion, the workroom was filled the season’s first feuds. We can’t stop talking about the spat between Gunnar & Christopher (“This isn’t Project Obnoxious!”) and we can’t wait to see how these tensions continue throughout the season.
For the first time ever, the runway show was in “the center of the universe,” Times Square, NYC. The designers were challenged to create a complementary look to one they created at home, so 32 looks went down the runway in front of thousands of screaming fans.
Back at Parsons the judges, including guests Lauren Graham and Patricia Field, didn’t hold anything back in their critiques. Top marks went to Ven (amazing construction), Melissa (most “sellable”) and Christopher (his gown is for “a major star.”) The harshest notes were for Lantie (Patricia Field noted she is “a step below” a designer- ouch,) Koann and Beatrice, who was ultimately out.
The winning designer was Christopher with his original design! The judges loved how he took an “okay” fabric and gave it fabulous movement on the runway. You can shop accessories inspired by his look here.
