Customer Reviews

Season 8 is one of my favorite seasons so far.

They're so nasty to one another that by the time we get to the runway show I'm too upset to care about the clothes.

"Project Runway" is a perennial guilty pleasure. Cat fights among fashion designers, Tim Gunn's mentoring, Heidi Klum's Teutonic accent, there's fun for everyone. "Project Runway" is very much at home in New York City, especially when the three finalists show their lines at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week at Lincoln Center. The 8th season is a standout with its flamboyant characters. The drama at the Parsons School of Design is as much a highlight as the challenges&the looks.

The 8th season had fascinating challenges-using materials from a party goods store, a Marie Claire (1-year auto-renewal) challenge, using avant garde hats from Philip Treacy (who designed Princess Beatrice's hat for LIFE The Royal Wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton: Expanded, Commemorative Edition (Life (Life Books))), making a 6 piece collection, using First Lady Jackie Kennedy as inspiration, and L'Oreal make-up. During the 8th season, Alexander McQueen (Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty (Metropolitan Museum of Art)) killed himself, and Heidi Klum commemorates him.

The 8th season had its array of characters- from Carlos Casanova, the middle-aged designer Peach, the Laotian Andy South, the granola/hippie-ish Gretchen Jones from the Pacific Northwest, and the inimitable Mondo Guerra. Mondo Guerra was a standout with his designs;he even managed to make his HIV+ status into a clothing pattern.

I've been a great fan of Project Runway, seen every episode several times, bought every season on dvd & watched them several times. I've recomended the show to anyone who'd listen. There have been good & not so good seasons, good & not so good judging, but season eight was worse than the worst that preceeded it. The judging was totally inexplicable & inexcusable. People were kept on the show who never should have been on the show at all. The final winner was a jaw dropping shock, one of those "what were the thinking?" moments. I was so put off by season 8 that I have no intension of buying it on dvd. More, I was so disgusted I may never watch upcoming seasons. Tim Gunn was the only one to come off well & the only reason I may relent & watch future shows.

I was not really satisfied with the way that the judging went for this particular season--but it was so fun to watch! I would have preferred for Mondo to win. Although many of his designs were a bit over the top for my taste, he was who I considered to be the most talented. My wife thought that Mondo's decision to include that white dress with the huge black polka dots in his final collection lost him him the support of Michael Kors, who had been critical of that design in the preliminary round. But I liked that dress, so I felt that Mondo should have won. As for the winner, Gretchen, I just did not like her designs. It seemed like Heidi, though often critical of Gretchen, was always kind of pushing her along and supporting her come what may. I think that Michael Kors really hit the nail on the head when he characterized Gretchen's designs as having a "Lady of the Valley" look. These sort of loose beige/earthen-toned things were just not what I would consider elegant, sexy, or fun! I also felt that April, the blond-haired younger woman, was not given enough credit. I loved her wild black edgy designs. Andy clearly deserved to be in the final three--I particularly loved his bathing suit in one of the challenges. In the end I felt that the final three should have been Mondo, Andy, and April.

Casanova, one of the real characters in the competition, was fun to watch. I particularly remember his weird dress that looked like it was about to slip off the hips of the model--and earned a few amusing comments from Michael Kors--who likened it to something appropriate for a belly dancer or stripper. Michael Costello was interesting as well. The poor guy was really maligned in one of the earlier challenges--and accused of being unable to sew.

There is a formula to reality tv contests, which comes down to one likely to win the ratings race in television and thus bring in more money from advertisers. While ostensibly this reality show is a clothing competition, the real purpose of the show is NOT to find the next great great fashion designer but rather TO GET THE HIGHEST POSSIBLE RATINGS AS A TV SHOW. If you read the end credits carefully, you will even discover that the show reserves a great deal of power so that decisions are very much in the hands of those who create tv shows. The people you see onscreen by no means hold the power in the entire disqualifying process. Indeed, the most remarkable thing which happens this season is that there is a spinoff show which follows it which features two talented designers (who did not win) who were fabulous characters in their season of this show. The spinoff show was much better than this show this season because they are fabulous characters plus very daring designers. (Too daring for Kors and Garcia, as per usual.)

The above pathos wringing problem was never more evident that this season. Every drop of drama which could be wrung from these "characters" was done so. I could almost imagine the person behind the camera crying, "Cut! Let's try hitting that wall with a little more oomph, Michael, to show how really upset you are." Or "Hmmmm, let's bring back our most bitter and envious contestant as a "helper" and let her vent her spleen against one of the contestants still there." Ergo the "character" Ivy the minute she hits the sewing machine accusing a contestant still in the running of cheating.

Then there is the problem of judges who seem like they have been judging too long.
