So... I've finally jumped on the Project Runway band wagon. And, as much as I hate being part of a trend, I'm absolutely addicted. So, I've decided to watch every single episode this season and write down all of their challenges and the guidelines they go by. Yeah, I know, it's lame picturing me sitting on the couch watching Project Runway with a notebook in my hand furiously writing down their challenges.... but.... that's my life. Anyway. I'm doing this so that if anyone wants to take a crack at 'em, they can. Show the results!! Smiley I'll be adding challenges with each new show.

Challenge #1: Road To Runway
The new designers are given 6 yards of plain white fabric & $20 (which was used for dye, embellishments, etc.) and a week of time to create an outfit that best represents them as a fashion designer, meaning, their design philosophy and point of view.

Challenge #2: The Clothes Off Your Back
The designers were invited to a little party where their second challenge would be revealed. When they got there, they were told that they were going to make an entirely new outfit using only the clothes that they were wearing. I think they had something like 12 hours to complete it... or was it 24? Anyway.. it wasn't very long.

Challenge #3: All Dolled Up
For their third challenge, the designers were told they were going to be fabricating an outfit for one of America's most stylish icons. They said they would be meeting her at her home. They were taken to Toys 'R Us in New York and led to (you guessed it) the Barbie section. Their challenge was to design a lifesize outfit for the new "My Scene" Barbie. All the designers got to pick only one doll as their creative muse. They went back to their designing room and were given only 30 minutes to sketch their design. Afterwards, they went shopping for materials, which I believe the time limit was 45 or 60 minutes (sorry, I'll pay better attention next time. The idea to share this came to me this morning.) They had 150 bucks to spend on material. After shopping for their materials, they had 2 days to complete their projects. Another little side-challenge was to replicate the outfit in miniature for Barbie to wear.

Challenge #4: Team Lingerie
For this challenge, the designers were first told they had 30 minutes to develop a presentation of lingerie consisting of three looks. They were separated into 4 teams of 3, the leader of each team being the one who's creative vision was best liked. Each team then works on the leader's collection. Each team receives $200 for materials and one 12 hour day to complete their line.

Anyway... I thought this would be a fun post for people who don't get the chance to watch it at 10 pm or who don't have Bravo. I'll be adding each new project as it comes up. Have fun!!

I am addicted to PR as well but I have to say I TiVo them so that I can watch them when I catch a spare moment. I was cruising through the posts and I came across yours and I just wanted to thank you for not telling who was sent packing and who won. I appreciate you not ruining my night. hehe! Thanks. I am ready to go watch it now though.

Heh, you're welcome.  Grin The point of the post is more about their challenges, not necessarily what happened on the show.  Smiley  Glad you enjoyed it without me ruining  it!

I checked it out and thanks for the heads up, but I'd rather not. I'm just posting the specific challenges, not what was made by who, what happened between designers or any other details of the show besides the challenges. Smiley
