Things to do in Sacramento and Beyond

The Bee's guide to events, activities, arts and entertainment

Back to the 'Runway'


Well, finally.

Bravo has announced that casting calls have gone out for Season 4 of the stylish drama/comedy reality show "Project Runway."

After months of apparently trying to figure out when - or if - there would even be another season of the Emmy-nominated show, Bravo now says the open calls for fashion designers interested in competing will kick off March 30 in Los Angeles, followed by Chicago, Miami and New York City. For more information, including location updates and official rules, interested participants can log on here.

Sadly, the announcement didn't include any updates on "Project Runway" mentor Tim Gunn (pictured above) or his status with the show. As you may recall, Bravo announced in January that Tim would be launching his own style show.

Now, the guy only has so many hours in a day. So I'm awaiting word on whether wrangling over his also appearing on "PR" had anything to do with the casting-call holdup.

Anyway, a little birdie - more like a swooping vulture - let me in on a juicy local-fashion nugget: There's good reason to believe that several of Sacramento's finest designers will be loading up their frocks and making the trip to L.A. at the end of this month to audition.

Stay riveted to this blog; I'll keep you posted.

In other "PR" news: Season 3 winner Jeffrey Sebelia is cranking out his own brand of distinguished couture. I checked out his Web site and it's really pretty cool. There's a listing for stores that carry his clothing, including Mac and The Grocery Store in San Francisco, but you also can order both men's and women's apparel off the site. I saw a lot of the same "looks" that he showed on the "Runway."

Here are some rules of the road:

• Keep your comments civil. Don't insult one another or the subjects of our articles. If you think a comment violates our guidelines click the "report abuse" button to notify the moderators. Responding to the comment will only encourage bad behavior.

• Don't use profanities, vulgarities or hate speech. This is a general interest news site. Sometimes, there are children present. Don't say anything in a way you wouldn't want your own child to hear.

• Do not copy and paste outside material into the comment box.

• Don't repeat the same comment over and over. We heard you the first time.

• Do not use the commenting system for advertising. That's spam and it isn't allowed.
