BPR Field Report from the UTG Finale

That's Eric3000 in the lower left corner!

We sent Project Runway recapper extraordinaire Eric3000 on a special mission to report on the Under The Gunn finale back in December. After cleverly disguising himself as Daniel Franco, he gained entrance behind the ropes and snared a front row seat. The results of this mission, well, you'll just have to read for yourself.

Thanks Eric!

BPR Interview with NIck Verreos

"Under the Gunn," winning mentor, Nick Verreos, talks about his experience on the show.

A couple of highlights:

BPR: Let's talk about your prize package. Have you received the Lexus yet? 

NV: I did hear from Lexus and they told me that the car would be just a one-year lease. I thought about it but I have leased a car before and I know that driving around in Los Angeles I was likely to get a scratch or a ding on the car and would probably wind up owing them money at the end of the lease. So, I declined. 


BPR: I have a reader question from Ken: What was Oscar wearing on his wrist at the finale?

NV: Oh! That was a hand-knit fabric cuff that Natalia made for Oscar. He honored her by wearing it on the finale runway. You probably noticed that every week he wore something himself to give a hint of his runway garment.

 BPR: Yes we did!

BPR Interview with Oscar Garcia-Lopez

Under the Gunn Champion, Oscar Garcia-Lopez, graciously spoke with me this morning about his experience on the show.

A highlight:

BPR: How did you learn to sew? 

OGL: Well, since I was very very little, I was always attracted to the machine. My grandmother had this very old Singer machine. I would just stare at it, like wow. I looked at it as a treasure. She would not let me near it, I was so little, so that made me only want it more. Do you know what I mean? 

My grandmother became sick with Alzheimer's in Cuba, and when we would visit her, instead of playing outside with kids in the neighborhood, I visited with her friends who were seamstresses, and they showed me so many things. I loved learning to sew and design. 

BPR: Heidi Klum said that she would "...love to wear some of your clothes..." Are you working on something for Heidi? 

 OGL: Ah - she was so great. At the moment...I can not talk about that... There was so much edited... she even came up to the garments and was looking inside at the seams and the finishing. She was so impressed. It was great.
