From Tom and Lorenzo, before the Project Runway finale (I know the outcome but am still catching up):
It’s time to start asking the question of why, after nine seasons, the winners of Project Runway (with the notable exception of Christian Siriano) don’t have post-show careers distinguishable from the designers who don’t win, or even from many of the designers who never made it into the finals at all. We’re not gonna lie: we hope Viktor wins it, because if he does, it’ll be because the judges recognize his professionalism and the potential for his work to sell well. No, he’s not “fashion forward,” but the tagline is “The Search for the Next Great Fashion Designer,” not “The Most Fashion Forward Designer.” And when you’ve got a Marie Claire editor, a Victoria’s Secret model, and a designer who made his name by churning out well made classics, all this talk of “fashion forward” comes off like a lot of bullshit.
What is the point of this show anymore?
