The big premiere of â€œProject Runwayâ€ (Thurs. July 28 at 9 p.m. on Lifetime) seems so far away, but rest assured, it will be on us faster than a Diane von Furstenberg wrap dress. Now, thanks to a new article in Us Weekly, we’ve gotten a peek at the new designers who’ll be competing on the show. While we don’t have much to go on beyond name, age and the assorted fun fact, that isn’t going to stop us from weighing in on our very, very early favorites (and a few wild guesses at who’s going home). So let’s begin this thoroughly unscientific, just-for-fun stab at who’s getting auf’ed and who’s not.
Pros: He’s a graduate of New York’s Parsons design school
Pros: She’s an intimates designer for Target
Pros: He says he has years of pent up creativity waiting to be unleashed.
Pros: He designed a men’s suit jacket that was featured on Italian Vogue’s Web site.
Cons: She’s from Portland (we haven’t gotten over the nightmare that was Gwetchen). Her first clothing designs were for her Barbie at age 8.
Who are your very, very unscientific favorites to win? And get ready for “Project Runway”Â fantasy league, whoot!Â Sign ups begin this week!
