  • Project Runway Canada: Exit Interview with Genevieve Graham
    “Last night’s episode of Project Runway Canada saw the five remaining designers compete in a challenge to dress Canadian supermodel Coco Rocha for a New York Fashion Week event. Unfortunately, Genevieve Graham’s trademark draping design failed to impress the judges, with Iman telling Graham that she needed to diversify as she left the runway. Sunny Fong was honoured with the prospect of Coco Rocha wearing what the judges called a “cheeky” dress, when he won the second last challenge before the final three are left.” Read more.

Review: Project Runway Canada episode 8

From Myles McNutt of Cultural Learnings:

  • Project Runway Canada Season 2 – “Episode 8”
    “This is going to be a pretty short one, because this episode is as simple as it gets: no gimmicks, no major drama, just five designers given a task to create an outfit for a supermodel. While I think that Adejoke’s depressed take on the challenge was a little bit off kilter, she’s right: while it sounds like this should be really exciting as an opportunity for young and new designers to showcase their work on a grand stage, in reality it’s not actually that interesting.” Read more.
