Click here for a new interview with Tim Gunn from StyleList.

A highlight:

StyleList: You've already put out two books. Are you working on a third?

TG: Yes. I'm very excited about this new book. It's an etymological guide to what's in your closet. I take basic items and track their lineage all the way back to Egypt, where it all began. It's a way of presenting fashion history in a way that I hope is accessible to people and that they find engaging. I want people to know that when they take that wrap dress out of the closet, that there's a history. It didn't just appear on the scene, it goes back centuries and centuries and has an interesting timeline.

Project Runway Season 2 designer, Kara Janx will be featured in the new show "All on the Line" on the Sundance Channel.

Irina Shabayeva for INC International Concepts Available Exclusively at Macy's

BPR Field Reporter, Kenda Nunez attended the launch party for Irina Shabayeva's INC International Concepts collection and sends us this report. Thank you Kenda and Irina!

Project Runway Season 6 winner, Irina Shabayeva joined forces with INC International Concepts to launch her Spring/Summer 2011 line available exclusively at Macy's.

The event was held at the modern Trump Soho Hotel Tuesday, January 18th. A beautiful penthouse surrounded by glass with a New York City Skyline was the perfect background for this modern collection. The area was full of industry insiders and photographers that wanted to see what Shabayeva had created.

The designs consisted of everything a woman needs in her closet; dresses, separates, denim and really cool outerwear. Some of the pieces had color blocks, others flowed delicately, and were peppered with beautiful embellishments. There were also jersey dresses that were rich jewel tones. This line can be described as wearable and fun and most importantly, beautiful.

The best part about the line is the fact that it’s available with great prices at Macy's. The collection ranges in price from $49-$159. The line will be available at stores starting February 19th in 50 Macy’s stores throughout the country including Herald Square (New York) and online at

Ms. Shabayeva and her team welcomed Blogging Project Runway and gave us one of the first interviews of the night. She was wearing one of her designs and looked great. Irina explained that making every woman feel beautiful is one of her inspirations. She told us that dance and fluidity were a big part behind this collection. Please listen to the interview for insight into this launch and more from her. It’s great to see the talent of all Project Runway designers beyond the competition and to learn about their achievements after their involvement with the show.

PS: As I was leaving the party I passed by the DJ booth and noticed, she was wearing one of Irina’s designs, not only did she look great! How nice to see the everyday woman look modern and flirty at affordable prices.

A Fresh Interview with Daniel Vosovic

The Project Runway Season Two designer talks about his design inspirations.

A highlight:

“I try to follow Alber Elbaz’s perspective on women and perspective on how he treats people. There’s such a level of respect for women and for design in general. And whenever he gives interviews, I’m still starstruck. I’m still shocked…I love that someone who’s so emotional and brings such a beautiful, sensitive quality to the fashion industry is still so successful. It helps ground me in my process and in how I interact with people…I don’t know him at all, and I hope that he’s the same person in real life that he is in the public view.”

He tells others he’s happy that I stayed in Texas.” Dao explained that Gunn was shocked she was not going to move to New York after winning Project Runway 2. “I said, ‘Tim, why do I have to move to New York to be a successful designer?’ And now I’ve heard he tells other designers ‘You can succeed anywhere. If Chloe can do it, you can do it.’”

Any offers on the table?

I don’t want to jinx it, but as you saw in the finale, Heidi was really fighting for me—her main management company has contacted me. My dream is to provide a product that makes people enjoy their life. It’s silly—after all, they are just clothes—but they change the way people walk down the street.
