Welcome to another season of ‘Project Runway’! My name is Faith Dawson. Thanks to Rodney Ho, whose Radio and TV Talk blog will play host to the fashion crowd on Friday mornings.
The winner: Christopher, designer of a generic two-tone strapless party dress
The loser: Ari, lover of Space Age soccer-ball hoodies
Season 6 of ‘Project Runway’ was worth the wait, with a diverse cast (age, ethnicity, size, POV), but I was disappointed that right away the judges booted the designer with the far-out aesthetic, Ari Fish. Ari could have provided some truly artistic (if not necessarily wearable) designs this season. I really thought they would have sent Qristyl packing without a second thought.
The winning design, a froth of black skirt with layers of taupe ruffles underneath, failed to excite me, though it was pretty enough. Speaking of a pretty froth, I hope Lindsay Lohan does not return as a guest judge.
Georgia connection: Mitchell Hall, he of the see-through, unfinished caftan, lists Savannah as his hometown.
Did you find the transition to Lifetime smooth? No coincidence that tears fell right away … And did anybody watch the All-Star Challenge (beforehand) or Models of the Runway (after)? I watched the All-Star Challenge, thinking that Atlantan Mychael Knight didn’t put enough effort in, that Korto and Chris were robbed, and that I must have missed something in Daniel’s collection. Let us know what you think!
