New York S/S09: Project Runway

Is it just me, or did Project Runway pick up a bit this season? It was kind of interesting to see what kind of crazy, wild creations this set of designers put onto the runway (consistent perfection is so *yawn*). But anyway, this post is not a review of the designs on the runway (well maybe a tiny bit), but more of a rant on the way the show is ran.

One of the main goals of this show (besides the Saturn, the money and the publicity) is getting to show at Bryant Park. How many times have we heard the designers on the show say that they WILL make it to Bryant Park? Only the top three is supposed to make it there. But because the show started late this season (for whatever reasons), SIX designers made it to Bryant Park as a decoy so the viewers won't know who made it to the final three in the show. Personally I feel like this kind of undermines the show. What is the point of elimination and survival of the fittest when 6 instead of 3 designers get to share one of the most coveted prizes? What is the point of a "limited edition" bag if everyone on the streets own one too?
Back to the show, I think it's obvious who is in the top two. Korto and Leanne have been consistently good. And they have good taste (which is a big plus, given the "taste" level of the show thus far). Personally I am vouching for Leanne. Her designs are always very simple but interesting and flattering.
My second favourite is actually Kenley. I just love the whole pin-up girl look she has going. But I must say, she's made quite a few wrong turns and it is unsure whether she'd make it to top three.
But then again, I certainly hope none of these looks make it to top three..........

I didnt watch this season, mostly cuase it started late and i just never got into it.

but i agree that they really need to not be sending half of the contestants to bryant park.

but since they allready have they really need to step it up in the next challanges cause i always think of the show as getting progresevly harder

They have aired only two first seasons of the PR in here, so I'm totally lost in here.

just to let you know i love your blog, i'm at college right now so I have almost no access to fashion at all (although we do have a saks down the street which I am constantly looking in) and all the people here have horrible fashion, i don't know if you have ever seen this bag, it is basically a quilted bag with ugly flower prints on it, looks like something a ninety year old woman would carry her knitting supplies in, and that's all people have here. so it's nice to know that there are people out there that actually care about day to day fashion

I love the green dress! I'd modify it and make it short so I can wear it out for a fun night out!

I agree that Project Runway picked up this season; there seemed to be a lot more buzz about it. I wish I could have stayed long enough to cover Project Runway. Unfortunately Fashion Week had to be cut short for me.
