Scandal Rocks Project Runway!
Warning-This might be a spoiler for those waiting to watch the end of Project Runway…
Laura Bennett, Mother of Five and finalist on Project Runway, has accused Jeff Sebelia, another finalist of hiring sewers to finish his collection before the Project Runway Show at Olympus Fashion Week. Obviously this would have been a violation of the show’s rules.
Tim Gunn, mentor to the designers throughout the show, has indicated that Jeffrey’s collection was “very ambitious” and that when he visited him three weeks before the runway show “had a lot of work to do”. Tim is not revealing the ending at this time. He indicated that “We took the accusation very seriously, and we did a very intense and thorough investigation ” when he spoke with New York Magazine.
Whatever the outcome, it just adds additional meat to an already great show that I have enjoyed for the past three seasons. All four lines presented at Olympus Fashion Week were all completely different from one another with totally different perspectives. It will be interesting.
The reunion show will be airing tonite on Bravo TV.
