Making it Work! My Guest Post on the Official Project Runway Blog + a Sparkly Giveaway
When Heidi Klum kicked off Episode 8 of Project Runway (Season 10) by asking the group how many were "good at negotiation," almost everyone raised their hands. Which raised her eyebrow (and mine). "You’ll have to use your negotiation skills for this challenge," she warned them. Oooh, excellent! A bunch of diva designers are a lot of things but skilled at negotiation isn’t generally one of them.
The catfight potential was already looking good.
Entering the Parsons workroom where the tables were piled with plain white tees, craft supplies and girlie glitter galore (which horrified Angry Elena), Tim announced yet another group challenge. Ding on the drama-o-meter. Sonjia, Gunnar and Christopher (above) were teamed up, the boyz circled each other warily but Sonjia’s adorbs personality made it possible for them to meet in the middle (negotiation — it’s the New Black). Now Ven, Fabio and Melissa … uh oh, are those polite smiles? Those three are gonna make do & get along. Fuhgiddaboudit. But wait: Alicia, Dmitry and, yes, Elena! Now this could be majah.
Cue Dmitry asking what he did in a past life to have to deserved working with her.

Meanwhile, back at the Ranch, or at least here at Project Fashiontribes, we have a super-special pair of commemorative Project Runway sewing shears to give away. They are covered in Swarovski crystals and come in their own special box. You say you're a P.R. fan? Then prove it by tweeting to @Fashiontribes why you think I should give 'em to you (be sure to include @ProjectRunway in your tweet).
Be sure to tune into this week's episode of Project Runway - info at MyLifetime.com - to find out what other fiendish ways the team has come up with to torture the designers!
