Event: “Project Runway” Season 8 Premiere
Location: the Empire Hotel in New York City
Date: July 28, 2010
Project Runway Season 8 premiered last Thursday night on the Lifetime Network. Since Lifetime decided to cancel broadcasting the accompanied show Models of the Runway, each episode of Project Runway is now 90 minutes long! I can never REALLY get into P.R. so this doesn’t excite me any at all. The contestants/designers’ personalities always seem to erkk my nerves.
This season features 17 new designers, whose profiles can all be viewed here. Returning as judges are supermodel Heidi Klum, fashion designer Michael Kors, and Marie Claire fashion director Nina Garcia, who Heidi revealed a few weeks ago is now preggers! Tim Gunn is also returning as a mentor to the aspiring designers.
