Mondo Guerra Hosts "Good Exchange for Change Fashion Show and Clothing Swap" Feb 7


Kick off Fashion Week by joining Project Runway All-Star winner and Denver fashion designer Mondo Guerra and three other Project Runway contestants for Goodwill’s third annual Good Exchange for Change Fashion Show & Clothing Swap. 

This evening of fashion and fundraising will be held from 5:30p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Exdo Event Center in Denver. 

 Guests who purchase VIP tickets will enjoy a pre-event meet and greet session with Mondo and Project Runway contestants Fallene Wells, Peach Carr and Michael Costello--plus they’ll be seated front row for the fashion show. The runway show will feature original designs using repurposed Goodwill clothing by students from Goodwill’s youth programs. 

Mondo, who got his start as a designer by repurposing items from Goodwill, will judge the student fashion show along with the three other Project Runway stars. The runway finale will feature up-cycled designs by up-and-coming designers debuting their new lines. 

 "I love being a part of the annual Goodwill Good Exchange for Change and Fashion Show,” said Project Runway All-Star winner Mondo Guerra. “It showcases the talent of these incredible young designers while supporting Goodwill's important work in our community." 

 While the fashion show is taking place, a giant clothing swap will be set-up in a separate space with the items that guests brought to swap with other event attendees. Once the fashion show wraps up, guests will be invited into the swap area-- and if they brought ten items to the event, they are welcome to take ten new items. 

 To learn more and to buy tickets for the event, please click here.

Recapalooza!

We would usually say welcome back for the premiere of a new season but now that Project Runway never ends, the recappers keep chugging along. For the uninitiated  this is our weekly collection of Project Runway recaps from fans and faves, often more entertaining than the show itself.

Everyone seems so happy at the beginning, we'll see how long that will last:

Eric3000 discovers the evil geniuses...
Suzq said she wasn't going to do it, but here she is...
Uncle Nick is back with a new redesign of his blog...
Gianni is watching with untainted eyes...
Democracy Diva cannot be restricted to teams...
Karen recaps with no forced advertising...
Mongie returns for S11...
Mila Hermanovski is back recapping for Lifetime...
Second City Style captures all the best quotes...
And Toyouke is our anchoress.

Thank you recappers! Have a Project Runway recap to share? E-mail the link to Team BPR to join in the fun. See you next week.

BPR Interview with Emily Pollard


The first elimination of the season is always heartbreaking.

Emily Pollard talks to BPR about her experience on the show.

A highlight:

BPR:  If you could go back, is there anything that you would do differently?

EP:  Definitely, I mean, I don't even know how to start with that.  First, I would have chosen to do something less complicated. Maybe stick with one piece.  There is nothing I can do about it now of course, but if I had been able to stay on, I would have considered the time constraint much more carefully.

Also,

BPR:  Have you remained in touch with the season 11 designers?

EP:  Yeah, I mean it's been in dark hallways and Morse Code and everything, because no one was supposed to know that we were on the show together, but yes, it's been fun having these new friends...having the support system.


Also, even though I didn't really get along with Cindy at first, she has become a good friend.  She is so talented, and so generous.   She knows so much about construction and I really appreciate her.  I will never judge again.  She was a lifesaver.

BPR Interview with Anthony Ryan Auld

Anthony Ryan wins Project Runway All Stars Season Two!


Anthony Ryan talks to BPR about his All-Star experience.

A highlight:

BPR: Last week we saw the couture challenge where Josh was eliminated. This week we saw him turn down the opportunity to assist you. How much time actually elapsed between these two scenes?

ARA: It was literally five hours. He had five hours of sleep and then everyone was called back to the set. It shows what a great friend he is. He knew that he really wouldn't be able to give his "all." He wanted someone else who would give 100%. That's a true friend. I could see it in his face, but I had to ask him.

Click here for the full interview.

Thank you Ryan!

Tim Gunn Talks about Project Runway Season 11


Why season 11 is Tim's "favorite season ever..."

We’ve already announced that it’s a season of team challenges, and the fans have gone crazy. They hate the whole idea! Everyone is making the assumption that the designers are compromising their own point of view in order to create a collection together. Nothing could be further from the truth. 

They’re put into teams but they’re still creating their own vision and creating their own work independent of the other designers on their team. However, one team’s going to be on the bottom after the judges’ evaluation and one team will be on top. So there’s an incentive to speak forthrightly and positively to any teammate you feel is doing substandard work, as opposed to just being snarky about it behind their back.

MB: Actually I speak french in the film. 

... And also, I have just been offered another opportunity to star in another film yesterday. I can't say what it is, but you will see, it is one of the biggest franchises in the world. I have been offered the role of a villainous character. Please stay tuned.

BPR Interview with Joshua McKinley





Project Runway All Star designer, Joshua McKinley, talks about his experience on the show.

A highlight:  

BPR: What was the best thing about the trip to Paris? 

 JM: The opportunity to see the Valentino Couture show. I mean I can't even describe it. I am just a boy from Ohio and I never even dreamed that I would have this opportunity. I will never forget it. 

BPR: Did you spend all of your 3000 euros on fabric? 

 JM: It was an extremely generous budget. That's $3800 American dollars. I mean we had a ton of money to spend. I was a little under because my fabric was not one of the luxurious "Oh my God I have to touch the fabric right now" fabrics. 

 BPR: Knowing what you do now, if you could go back to Paris, would you choose something different? Would you do anything different at all? 

 JM: I would not change a thing. Not at all. I stand by my vision. The vision was solid. It was so on point. Sometimes the garment is about the narrative. I also welcomed the opportunity to re-make the dress as a "ready-to-wear" option.

Tim Gunn Returns to "Baileywick" Role in "Sofia the First"



"Sofia the First" returns to Disney Junior as an animated series on Friday, January 11th.

Tim Gunn returns to the role of "Baileywick," who not only helps Sofia dress like a royal, but also guides her on developing manners, grace and an independent spirit. 

The message of "Sofia the First" is a good one, Gunn says: Looking the part only gets you halfway there and then you have to act like a leader and be nice to people at the same time. 

"If I had a child, I would want my child watching this for the lesson in moral character." 

It might be harder for kids — or the parents watching with them — to glean any real-life style tips.

"I'm dealing with royalty here," says Gunn. "They can make their own fashion rules."
