The 10th anniversary season of Project Runway, premiering tonight, July 19th at 9pm NYC time!
THE MAKE-IT-WORK FACTOR:
You have the chance to win this special pair of Project Runway X crystal scissors (worth $120, but if you consider the cool factor for winning them...priceless) just by doing the Social Media'izing you'd be doing anyway (deets on how to win at the bottom). Basically the more - and more creatively - you Facebook-share & re-tweet my posts about Project Runway (using the hashtag #projectrunway & including @Fashiontribes so I know what you're up to), the better your chances of saying "Wie geht's" to these blinged-out and uber-fabulous pair of shears.
THE SETTING FOR THE KICKOFF EPISODE TO SEASON X:
Screaming crowds & designers prepping for a runway show.
THE INNOCENT (Christopher), THE KOOKY GUY (Kooan), THE SOCIAL BUTTERFLY (Buffi), THE SNOB (Lantie), THE NOVICE (Beatrice), THE COMEBACK KID (Gunnar), collectively THE FEATURED DESIGNERS; THE STYLE SENSEI (Tim Gunn); THE JUDGES (Heidi Klum, Nina Garcia, Michael Kors)
THE DESIGNERS are summoned onstage by JUDGE HEIDI for a celebratory Champagne toast to fete the show turning 10.
Flash back to one day earlier.
ACT I: THE DESIGNERS arrive at Parson's in NYC and work on a second look to compliment a piece they brought from home, and get to introduce their aesthetic & personality. Which is where things start to get fun. THE INNOCENT (Christopher) lacks confidence and struggles, and THE SENSEI (Tim Gunn) can't comprehend THE KOOKY GUY'S (Kooan) design. Meanwhile, THE SNOB (Lantie) hates the look she's making and another designer (Raul) has trouble manipulating his fabric. THE INNOCENT & THE COMEBACK KID (Gunnar) were apparently separated at birth and have similar personalities, causing them to clash. Fabio then reveals he's a dumpster diver Freegan and Dmitry that he was a one-time pro ballroom dancer.
ACT III: A new day dawns and THE DESIGNERS race to the runway, throwing models into hair and makeup and making last minute tweaks. They are then guided by THE SENSEI to the venue for their first runway show, where they now have to impress not only THE JUDGES, but the GUEST JUDGES Patricia Field and Lauren Graham as well...plus a new wrinkle (so to speak): a LIVE AUDIENCE. Then the post-show mortem begins, as the looks are ranked by top three and bottom three. The DESIGNERS responsible are grilled about their designs, after which they troop off and await their fate: who will be declared the WINNER and who will be deemed THE LOSER & sent off to pack up their things & unceremoniously bid "Auf Weidersehen" by JUDGE HEIDI.
THE END...of Episode 1.
