Season 7 Premier of Project Runway

Season 7 of Project Runway premiered last night on Lifetime and it's back in NY! As always the designers are an eclectic mix of those fresh out of school, boutique owners, award winners and costume designers of various ages and personal styles.

The first challenge began in Bryant Park with the designers racing to grab fabrics that were strewn across the park from Mood Fabrics. With them, they were tasked to create a look of their choice--something that represented them as designers.

And then there was the runway show, of which the fantastically bohemian chic Nicole Richie was the guest judge. My early favs included:

-Ben's futuristic dress

-Seth Aaron's "little Tokyo" dress. Oh the suspender look in the front! Fab!

-Amy's creative lapel skirt (even though it was reminiscent of season 5 winner Leanne Marshall's aestetic)

Hopefully, this season will be more interesting than the last--of which about 6 episodes still reside in my dvr, waiting for me to struggle through them. Make it work, Lifetime.
