"An inside look at all the glitz and glamour, blood, sweat, tears, and trends
that make fashion shows and fashion such a magic and mystical ride." -Phillip Bloch on author's previous book, New York Fashion Week

This book is so well put together and the contect is extremely detailed with fabulous photos.
Designer Rob Bacon
It's fun to read all the behind-the-scenes stories, including those from people we don't know because they're not on camera--but they're so important to the show.
Deborah Ellsworth
I also loved learning about the workings of the show behind the scenes and the people responsible for making it so much fun.

I am a huge fan of Project Runway and I even have a blog devoted to the show, so I was admittedly a little skeptical about the book offering me anything new. I was wrong. Not only is this an excellent "archive" of the show, but the author also presents new interviews and information about the Project Runway designers. This is a great addition to the library of any Project Runway fan.

I just received this today and I am super excited about it - but it will take weeks to read through it all. It is a huge volume of pictures and stories told from every point of view. I have watched every season and love it even though I am not a fashionista (haha). If you are a Project Runway fan do not hesitate to buy this book. Also I am a huge Kindle fan ( I own 4) but this is one book you want to have the old fashion way. It's a study, paperback volume that will hold up to repeated reading.

Great summaries of the various seasons, with lots of highlights (and lowlights!) and good background information on the show and its essential players. Lots of pictures, too, though there could always be more! I hope they do an updated version in a few years - this one ends with a short feature on Mondo's All-Star Season

Was very promotional with many pictures. Very little about how the show really is for the participants: designers or judges. Some good photography but would have liked more about how it really was for the people involved and less promotion of the show. Not realistic.

It's fun to read all the behind-the-scenes stories, including those from people we don't know because they're not on camera--but they're so important to the show. It's also great to have hard-copy pix of so many of the fashions that were created on the show. The large, photo-packed book covers each of the first 9 seasons, including all of the winning looks for each challenge, and much more.

The book had a lot of behind the scenes info. What I liked reading the most were the interviews with the contestants about their experience and what they are doing now. The only negative is that some of my personal favorite people were not interviewed. But besides that I loved the book.

I got this book for myself as a reward for getting through parent/teacher conferences, and I was not disappointed. I have been a viewer of "Project Runway" since Season 4, and although the quality of the show has gone through its ups and downs, Tim Gunn, the judges, and memorable fashion has stayed true to form. I enjoyed reading thoughts from Heidi Klum, several of the workers from behind-the-scenes, and especially the interviews from cast members who made it far into their season. I loved the overall pictures of all of the winning looks, although I would have liked to have seen pictures of looks that were in the bottom, to show contrast. I would have loved to have seen Rami interviewed with the rest of the Season 4 contestants. Overall, a terrific and worthy read.

I really liked this big book fillled with all my old PR contestants and their clothes. I also loved learning about the workings of the
show behind the scenes and the people responsible for making it so much fun. The photos were good. As a die-hard fan of
PR, I am so glad I purchased this interesting and well produced book.
