Monday Start-Up: Project Runway Season 9 Premier

by Rachel Yeomans | August 1st, 2011   

I normally don’t label myself as someone who loves reality TV. In fact I usually err towards Masterpiece Theatre or anything BBC. However Project Runway is my very clear exception. And Season 9 kicked off this last Thursday, and I couldn’t help but eagerly drool over the creations that were made from pajamas and one mere bed sheet. This show always astonishes me when it comes the creativity and ingenuity from these hard-working designers.

Here is the final runway photo from the challenge, with two of my favorites leading the way (the second being the winner!):

And here is a video of the judge’s feedback of the winning look!

Here are some of my other favorites from the show. Which are yours?

I think that the overall designers really made it work (to quote the infamous and ever-so-fashionable Tim Gunn) in this episode. And I’m chomping at the bit for more!


I almost always watch Project Runway religiously with my friends, but since we're scattered over the country and I've been so busy I haven't been able to watch it yet! Ack. Must remedy this soon, but if that first picture is any indication, I think I'm going to love this season!

@annedreshfield Well you could all watch it together at your various locations while being connected via Google Hangouts to chat throughout! (yes I know, I'm a dork) - but yes, I think this season is going to be fantastic! Fingers crossed!
