Project Runway

Season 8 of Project Runway kicked off Thursday, July 29th with the first episode titled “And Sew It Begins.” The 17 designers met Tim and Heidi at the Lincoln Center where the contestants were given their first challenge. Each designer had to pull something out of their suitcase to use as the base of their design, and then as a twist, they had to turn the item over to another contestant. The contestants only had five hours to complete their fashions, and this is what they made:

    it wasn’t casanova who went home it was one of the girls, either Ivy or McKell. I haven’t had a chance to watch all of the show, I tuned in late where they had all the worst left on stage. I think the change up in the show is going to be interesting this season.

    I thought McKell went home and they kept Casanova.

    Yes. You both are right. It was McKell not Casanova–typo on my part. I made the change above.
