I like to keep the lines of communication wide open between me and the folks at Bravo. That's because some of my favorite shows (read: on fashion) are on the cable network.
Anyway, as I mentioned Tuesday in a Scene story, the four-disc DVD of "Project Runway Season 3" is out, with the fourth season set to launch next Wednesday. (I'll have an interview with the show's Tim Gunn and Heidi Klum that day, also in Scene.)
But, enough of that. Check this out: The Bravo folks tell me that, for the first time since the show's been on the air, the designers (of Season 4) held a pre-show fashion show Tuesday at Lincoln Center. It was a show for fans of "Project Runway."
It was also a chance for me to catch a glimpse of what some of the designers might have up their creative sleeves. I saw some photos of their work and thought 21Q fans would like to see them, too.
Pictured above is contestant Jack's take on black-and-white prints. Jack, 38, is a Cal grad who went on to the Parsons School for Design in New York. For the past four years, Jack has been the design director at Weatherproof Active Wear.
Another designer is Kit, 26, who is from Los Angeles and has spent time soaking up the culture of Florence, Italy. She now designs mostly for private clients. Several of her designs are pictured right.
So, what do you think?
By the way, among the attendees at Tuesday's show was "Project Runway" judge Nina Garcia, along with Tim and Heidi, and the cast of "The Real Housewives of Orange County," which launched its new season Tuesday night on Bravo. (OK, enough about Bravo.)
Except for this: If you want to see a video of the Lincoln Center show, click here.
And, if you just happen to make it over to Bravo's Web site, there's an actual clock ticking down the days, hours, minutes and seconds to the Season 4 debut.
Hey, with this whole Hollywood writers strike going on, a fashion competition might just be the TV ticket!
