project runway

Friday, August 24, 2012

Just finished watching Project Runway and instead of designing for their usual models, the designers had to make clothes for non models, women whose friends thought they needed a makeover. One of the designers pitched a fit from the get go, saying that he wasn't used to designing for "real woman." He was horrified to learn his client was a size 14, like that was an insurmountable and inconceivable size for his aesthetic. Thankfully, Heidi Klum took him to task and called him out for the term "real woman," asking him what an unreal woman was. Last time I checked twitter, the designer was still bashing his client and making excuses for why he designed such an ugly dress. Clowns like this are why it's nearly impossible to find attractive clothes in sizes larger than 6 or 8.

    Funny, though, that HK called that designer out as, if memory serves me right, she used the term "hootchie mama" at one point in the episode (followed up by TG using the word "tart" as an explanation to a jargon-challenged British guest judge)......YIKES, people! How unprofessional and misogynistic is that kind of talk - especially in the year 2012 in the US?

    No wonder I despise the industry (though I do like PR for ONLY one reason - seeing the creative process in action)!
