Project Runway Season 12: Episode 1 "Sky's the Limit"
More Tim Gunn! That's my headline for the 12th season of Project Runway. The show has a new (improved) format, and now Tim will be sitting in on the runway shows. Tim also has a new special "Rescue" power. Just once this season, he will be able to save a designer from being voted out by the judges. Essentially, it's what Tim did last season to keep Michelle Franklin on the show, and Michelle went on to win.
1. The judges won't know who designed what until after the judging.
2. After the runway show, the designs are assessed off the runway, in close inspection. For sewers, isn't that a great improvement to the show?! Finally, we get to see the garments up close.
The designers had to work with nylon parachute fabric, which is difficult to sew. The show began with the designers arriving at an airfield. Skydivers dropped from a plane, and each designer had to use a parachute to create a look that defined his or her aesthetic.
