In the news: Brandon Dwyer of Project Runway Canada

From Kat Angus of Canwest News Service:

  • Yves who? Project Runway castoff Brandon Dwyer learns it pays to know your fashion icons. Q&A.
    “The Yves Saint Laurent team fell to the bottom of the pack, as team leader Kim Cathers was chastised for straying from haute couture while Brandon Dwyer was taken to task for admitting he knew nothing of Saint Laurent. Ultimately, Dwyer’s unimpressive outfit and his ignorance of one of fashion’s most influential icons was enough to get the 22-year-old sent home. Dose.ca caught up with Dwyer to chat about his final episode.” Read more.

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.
