Zac Posen on Season 12 of Project Runway

ETonline just posted an interview with Zac Posen.  

A highlight:

ETonline: You were great on Project Runway. Are you going to be back for season 12? 

Posen: I'm in the midst of filming! 

Etonline: How's it going? 

Posen: Really good! We started about a week and half ago, and it's been a very busy schedule. There's an incredible group of designers. They are driven -- they are passionate. It is going to be an incredible season for the fans who haven’t watched it in a few seasons. This is one to watch. 

ETonline: How do you find the time for Project Runway and designing? 

Posen: It's very challenging. Time management is an art. You switch mindsets. I try to leave my personal aesthetic at the door when I shoot Project Runway. The thing that I value more than anything else in the world is great teachers, and I've had amazing teachers in my life. My father -- who's an artist -- has throughout my career, been an incredible critic. I think it became hereditary or through listening to him. I tried to bring that to the set with the objective to be fun, and to get the most out of each individual creator. But the designers are very talented, the challenges are very challenging, the time constraints are intense. The drama is high.

Tim Gunn on Four Stars with "Perplexing" Celebrity Fashion

A New Interview with Benjamin Mach

Project Runway Season 11 designer, Benjamin Mach, is profiled in a fresh new interview.

A highlight: 

 You worked with Marchesa for the lovely Georgina Chapman. How was your experience there? 

 Working with Georgina and Keren Craig when they were in the early years of developing their brand was one of the best London experiences I had. I learned a lot about myself when I was working with them and they were truly wonderful to be around. I have visited them in the New York atelier and it reminded me so much of the studio I was a part of in London magnified x100 !! I miss working with them, but we probably just went down different paths. I still keep in touch.

Heidi Klum on "America's Got Talent"


Did you watch Heidi on AGT?  What did you think?

Heidi talks about her new role in a fresh interview here.

A highlight:

Q: In what kind of role do you see yourself as a judge? 

 A: I look at it as a woman, as a mom, someone who has seen a lot of shows. You know, I think about, "Hey, is this an act that is interesting? Is this something that I want to see again? Did that excite me? Would my children love to watch this?" 

 Q: Do you have any specific criteria you are looking for? 

 A: I love people that surprise me, that show me things I haven't seen before. Today we looked at this guy ... he's a sword swallower. He combined that with pole dancing. He was pole dancing with a sword down his throat and did that deadly drop that they do at the end sometimes, you know? With a sword in his mouth. ... We're jaded and we've seen so many things and you're looking for something that surprises you.

A New Interview with Patricia Michaels

Project Runway Season 11 Finalist, Patricia Michaels, talks to about her new designs, inspired by aspens.  A highlight:

“I hugged an aspen and could feel the roots, the branches, the leaves, the sky, the earth. Each tree was a design; all the trees were a collection. I fell in love with the color of those round aspen seed balls. Celebrate life, it’s sad to hold back, go for it all, if it doesn’t pan out now, it will later. Others tell us what a Native is, how we should be. We have our own rules and regulations too, that we inflict on each other. It’s all a script and we have to change that script so our youth can be proud and have respect for their elders and culture. Our elders carried us this far, we need to respect that. My generation, we are the elders now; we have to start appreciating each other now.”

Project Runway Vietnam - Episode 6

A New Interview with Project Runway Season 11 Winner, MIchelle Lesniak

Michelle Lesniak talks to "The Oregonian."


"I do not plan on leaving Portland," the 34-year-old says. "There are no rules, and if there is a rule that one has to live in New York City or Los Angeles, I plan on breaking that rule." 

Also,  For one thing, she and her husband are getting a divorce, which means she'll be going back to her family name, Lesniak. "It's very amicable," she says. "We put in 10 years of marriage." 

She is still waiting for her prizes! 

Her "Project Runway" victory was especially sweet, given that in the first several weeks of the season, she was on teams that consistently lost. She's still waiting, however, for delivery of her prizes, including $100,000, a 2013 Lexus GS 350 and a $50,000 technology suite by Hewlett-Packard and Intel.
