The anticipation is over for the season premiere of Project Runway.
With 20 designers immediately off to a crazy start and the whole of the Caribbean glued to see one of our own, Anya Ayoung Chee in action.
Before the show even premiered, it was evident that Anya was the only contestant on the show getting ALL THE BUZZ! I think this might actually be a first in the show’s history!
But seriously though, wah de ass make Tim Gunn so baffled and horrified, when he found out that Anya sewed her own clothes? These Americans don’t know that people from the Caribbean can do anything ah wah? We have the fastest man in the world and a woman on Project Runway that learn to sew in 4 months! Seriously, it is not that hard to learn how to professionally sew in 4 months, especially if you have been in the business for years. By the way, Anya is not only a fashion designer but a graduate of the famous Parsons School of Design.
Right off the bat, the judges eliminated four of the 20 designers.
In the beginning host Tim Gunn and the judges Michael Kors and Nina Garcia challenged Anya’s credibility and her ability. Heidi Klum was the only one that fought for her.
The first challenge was quite entertaining. Thank God no one slept in the nude because they had to use their sleep clothes and a sheet from their bed to create the first design for season 9.
I know some people that cannot sew to save their lives, but somehow I believe it’s way easier to sew a skirt than a pants. So when Anya decided to sew a pants from her bed sheet, in my head she instantly got points. It wasn’t the best pants I’ve ever seen, but it was good for a first time, especially since she’s never sewn silk before! Her top from her “kimono nightie” was a winner. I would wear it!
When Anthony, Rafael, Josh, Anya, Bert and Julie were named highest and lowest scorers and asked to remain….I had to tweet to let everyone know…breathe nah man….Anya in…doh sweat!
Surely enough….she got praises for her unique two piece design from the judges including celebrity guest judge Cristina Ricci. Bert won the first challenge and next week’s immunity while Rafael got the boot!
From 20 designers Anya, Anthony, Bert , Gunnar, Cecilia, Bryce, Rafael, Josh, Danielle, Viktor, Joshua, Fallene, Julie, David, Laura, Amanda, Kimberly, Olivier, Serena, Becky down to 15!
Rest in reality TV peace Amanda, David, Gunnar, Serena and Rafael.
By the way, it was very refreshing to hear an accent I can relate to on prime time tv! Thank you Lifetime for not disrespecting us by putting up subtitles! Cha!
