Project Runway

OK, let’s start this blog entry with a question — Am I the only one that can’t get enough of the reality TV show Project Runway? It’s a run away hit if you ask me. I hate to admit it, but I feel my secret is safe on the internet.

I don’t think that I have an eye for fashion or any design abilities that involve fabric, but this is one of the few industries that I dont know anything about and wanted to learn more. If I had to be on a reality show, I would want to be on Project Runway. I have developed an optimum playing strategy to win this show. I have some tried and tested tips for future contenders on Project Runway. Tried yes, but not tested to be honest. I only conducted one very informal survey and this was just a ploy to get a phone number of one of the models. Let’s put it on the table, these tips have not been tried or tested I just dont know why I stated that earlier.

Here we go:

  1. You can’t have enough sequins, but leave the Bedazzler at home.
  2. Tight is in, but see-through is out.
  3. Use pinking sheers (not sure what they are, but they sound funny).
  4. If someone wears small sunglasses, use oversized sunglasses. If someone uses oversized sunglasses, use ski goggles.
  5. Don’t compromise your vision, unless your vision doesn’t involve cleavage of some sort.
  6. Drink Fiji water and smoke filterless cigarillos.
  7. If by chance something you designed looks wearable, make it shorter/longer, hem at an angle, add a layer of puffiness, and stick something protruding from one shoulder.
  8. Everything can be used for inspiration and everything includes a JC Penny catalog.
  9. On the business side of fashion, learn to name drop: Agatha, Custo, Louis, and R.
  10. Mock tears are good when trying to explain what went horribly wrong with your design.
