Review | Project Runway
I received this book for free by winning it through a contest held by Project Runway on twitter. I just had to tweet to their account and shortly after they told me I won – I died. They then asked me for my address and told me that they’d send it soon. Once I got it in the mail I freaked out, and read the book that very day. It’s just that amazing, you should most definitely check it out!
Project Runway the inspiring fashion reality television series, premiered in 2004. This season is it’s tenth and to celebrate they’ve launched an amazing book to go along with the show. It’s an official guide behind the scenes of a television and fashion landmark. It’s beautifully illustrated with hundreds of photos, interviews where fans will learn how the show began and developed over the years, relive the highlights of seasons past, and learn what their favorite designers are doing after the show. Heidi Klum has provided commentary, along with interviews and inspiring words from workroom mentor Tim Gunn and judges Nina Garcia, and Michael Kors. This is the ultimate source for all things Project Runway! As you know, I adore interviews – so having the chance to read them was the best. I’ve learned so much about my favourite designers and judges, along with the people behind the actual show. Eila Mell is the author behind the book, and I think it’s safe to say that she’s a talented interviewer let alone writer. You will find a lovely amount of inspiration, plus it’s a great “autographs” book as it contains everyone you’d ever want to meet from Project Runway. I so far have Heidi Klum (cover), and Fern Mallis (page), and am hoping to get Austin Scarlett, Althea Harper, Nina Garcia and Michael Kors to sign their pages. Wish me luck? I can so do it – anything’s possible.
