Review: Project Runway Canada episode 4

From Myles McNutt at Cultural Learnings:

  • Project Runway Canada Season Two – “Episode Four”
    “One thing that Project Runway Canada has been good with this year is designing challenges that are actually just that: a challenge. This week, the designers are placed into teams of three in order to complete quite the task: not only do they have to design a three-piece couture collection, but it has to be a collection inspired by a famous fashion design house, and their looks need to be maken out of vintage clothing from Preloved. As a result, it’s the ultimate challenge: they need to work together, they need to make something high class out of not so high class fabrics, and they have to show a knowledge of the design world in which they desire to operate. Oh, and they have to present themselves as a designer, because they always have to do that.” Read more.

From J. Kelly Nestruck of the Globe and Mail:

  • Dreaming of a Joseph revival – in Technicolor
    “How do you solve a problem like Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat? With the continuing success of its CBC-cast The Sound of Music, Toronto producer David Mirvish is in discussions with the national broadcaster to produce Any Dream Will Do, a Canadian version of the British reality series that selected the star of the current West End revival of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. The contest would aim to cast a lead actor for an all-Canadian production of the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical.” Read more.
