- 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.

- Project Runway Canada host Iman dishes about Canuck fashion, Heidi Klum
“Canadians are too nice,” Iman confirms when asked about the spirit of the competition. “There is competitive and there is bitchy. New York is bitchy and there is a different sensibility there. Canadians… they are willing to go the distance.” Read more.

- 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.
