Attention aspiring designers: Fabricland is sponsoring a sewing contest called "Project Fabricland." Thanks Jeannie.

Doll designers feeling left out? Have no fear - Project Dollway is here! Thanks Ted.

Tim Gunn reviews fashions in the movies in this interview from Variety. I can't resist including this little bit:

Q. Are models and photogs really that charged on the job?

"With the good ones: yes," says Gunn. "When the photographer is passionate and involved, he gets swept up in it. The model is, 'Whatever you want me to do, I'll do.' It's the power of seduction. I don't know what to compare it to. Forgive me: It's like having sex."

Tim, did you really say that??? (Note to self: Add "Blowup" to Netflix list.) Thanks Carol.

You can win a Nick Verreos-designed apron by entering a contest at BTC. Good luck! Thanks Linda.

Amanda Fields is quoted in today's New York Post. She talks new guidelines for models in the upcoming Fashion Week. Thanks Amanda.
