It's Time

After 11 + years of covering everything related to Project Runway, Team BPR is closing up shop. It's something we've talked about for awhile and probably should have done sooner. This hobby of love that Laura K started back in 2005 keeps drifting further back in our life priorities and it really isn't fair to our community for us to go through another cycle half-hearted. We have had some great, incredible moments with all of you on the blog and the Facebook group over the years, but its time to move on.

We want to thank everyone in the PR franchise who welcomed us and gave us access - the Bravo and Lifetime Networks; the Magical Elves and Bunim-Murray; the designers (many of whom will always remain our dear friends) and the models. Special thanks goes out to our beloved Tim Gunn, who very early on not only wrote to us and encouraged us, but who also agreed to meet us in person to dish about the show. We will always cherish our infamous "Breakfast with Tim" meetings that we would have the morning after every finale. As hard as we would try to get information out of him, not once did he ever reveal a spoiler about the show.

Most of all we will miss you. Our readers are what made BPR so special. You turned this virtual space into an amazingly fun and creative community, a safe haven where we could shed the worries of our day and share our obsession for this groundbreaking reality program. Thank you for support and friendship.

You know we will not just simply say goodbye, don't you? Instead we'll borrow from Tim:

Carry On!

With much love,
Laura K, The Scarlett and Tbone

BPR Interview with Dom Streater

Project Runway Season 5 All-Star designer, Dom Streater talks about her experience on the show.

A highlight:

BPR:  When you arrived and saw the other All-Stars, who did you feel would be your biggest competition?

DS:  Alexander and Ken.  They were from my season and I was aware of what they could do.

BPR:  Okay, let's talk about your personal life....  You recently married.  Please tell us about your husband.

DS: I've known Ivan for about six years.  We've been together for about four.  We actually met when we were both doing cancer research at the University of Pennsylvania.  We've been together ever since.

BPR:  And when is your baby due?

DS:  June 19th - so soon.

Thank you Dom!

BPR Interview with Ken Laurence

Project Runway All-Stars Season 5 finalist,  Ken Laurence talks about his experience on the show.

A highlight:

 BPR:  Which was your favorite challenge?

KL:  I would say the avant garde challenge.  

BPR:  Your avant garde design was stunning....Did you all switch models for each challenge?  How did that work?

KL:  Yes.  It was always off-camera.  There was a stack of photos of the models and we just pulled one from the stack.  That was the model that we got for the challenge.  

BPR:  Switching models didn't fool the judges or the audience though.  We could definitely identify your designs.

Thank you Ken!

BPR Interview with Kini Zamora

Project Runway All-Star Season 5 finalist, Kini Zamora talks to BPR about his experience on the show. 

A highlight:

BPR:  If you are the winner of All-Stars season 5, how will you spend the money?

KZ:  I would put it straight back into my business.  I want to build awareness of the fashion industry in Hawaii.  We have talented creative people here in Hawaii.  We have our own Fashion Week.  We don't all wear muumuus!  Also, I am teaching kids to sew from my studio, passing it on to the next generation.

Thank you, Kini.
