Project Runway is one of my all time favorite shows. Having my boss say “Where’s Santino?” in Tim Gunn’s voice when I started my job last year is one of my favorite life moments. My sister and I typically settle on the same favorite designer which results in many text convos consisting of “WHAT” “WHY” “NO. JUST NO.” when we don’t agree with what the judges are saying to them.
This season we fell in love with Justin LeBlanc, and how could you not? Not only is he an amazing designer, but he exudes passion for what he does, takes risks, and totally embodies not letting anything get in the way of your dreams. Of course I love the show for the fashion, but I think it offers valuable lessons in having confidence in the choices you make, standing behind your work, and the value of hard work and persistence.
This season Tim Gunn got a “save” if he didn’t agree with who the judges eliminated. He used it on Justin and obviously made the right choice because now he is in the finals headed to New York Fashion Week! See some of our favorite #DesignerJustin looks below and be sure to tune in tonight for the final runway – all of the designers who are left have amazing work, I can’t wait to see what they’ve come up with!
