Project Runway Canada Season One designers, Evan Biddell, Carlie Wong and Lucian Matis were among the designers showing at LG Fashion Week.

Here is Johanne's report from the front row of the PRC finale show:

I sat front row for the collections by the three top finalists at Project Runway Canada’s LG Fashion Week finale. The show started with an introduction by PRC host Iman who was wearing a fitted emerald-green knee-length dress with silver platform heels. She asked the audience to help maintain the excitement of the TV show by not disclosing any information about the designers who were there.

That said, there were six designers who went on stage and introduced themselves and described their collection but only three collections were shown, without the designer coming out after his/her work to salute the crowd. As a fan and a viewer of Project Runway Canada, it wasn’t hard for me to tell whose work was on the runway.

It was a great show by all three designers- not at all what I expected to see and from up close in the front row, even I could tell that there were some garment construction issues. Some seams were crooked or awkward-looking, sequins weren’t well finished at the zipper of a dress, shapes were a little odd. All in all, the most fun all season of PRC and I can’t wait to share more with you about the three designers I met backstage and my interview with one of them yesterday. We’ll have to wait until the final airing of the show to get into more details!
