Project Runway: Season 7

Our contributing fashion editor gives us her take on the new season By Arleny Genao

emilio_sosadesignI am a huge fan of Project Runway, and this season it is back in New York with 16 new designers and a beautiful glowing pregnant Heidi Klum. Season 7 kicked off its first challenge with the contestants scrambling for fabric in Central Park in order to create a piece that represents who they are as designers. And of course, it wouldn't be a show without some tension. After seeing all the designs I already have few personal favorites.

I liked the dress by Amy Sarabi. I thought this design was functional and well constructed. Plus, I already see myself wearing this piece (with a few adjustments). I also liked Pamela Ptak’s design- her dress looks so casual but sexy at the same time (check out that back!). At the end, Emilio Sosa won the first challenge by creating a fun and flirty dress that looked so simple but included an incredible amount of detail and technique that left the judges impressed. Which designer left you blown away? Let us know!
