Recap of Project Runway
  • Project Runway All Stars at Mood Fabrics: The Aftermath

    Last summer the producers of Project Runway All Stars approached us about filming an entire episode of the show at Mood Fabrics NYC. Everything but the runway and judging would be filmed at Mood, they told us. Even the models would get dressed at Mood.

    We thought about it for a split second, and of course we said yes. Though having the show here for more than just the usual fabric shopping scene meant a lot of rearranging of our retail space, we took a cue from Tim Gunn and made it work.

    What you see below is the aftermath of filming this episode at Mood, i.e., "When the Designers and Crew Left the Building."

One work area was just outside of Mood's offices. I listened hard for the drama but didn't hear a peep from the designers the entire day they were here.

Mentor Zanna Roberts Rassi was a good sport for putting up with the Mood employees who had to scoot by her as she was being made up, just so they could get into the office area.

    We loved playing host to Project Runway All Stars for this episode. It was a lot of work, but really worth it.

    Tim Gunn has been tutoring our Swatch in how to be a Project Runway fashion mentor. Check out these images and let us know if you think Swatch could step in for Tim when he goes on vacation.

  • Project Runway Tween Challenge

    Thank you, Mood! Thank you, Mood!

    When the Pomonok Library in Queens ran a summer sewing camp for teens, some of its tween patrons felt left out. Librarian Frances Grossman suggested that they host their own version of Project Runway. When she contacted the Weinstein Company to ask permission to use the Project Runway name, the event took on a life of its own. Weinstein gave permission to use the name and reached out to its Project Runway partners, including us here at Mood, to co-sponsor the event.

    The winning designer adds finishing touches. The winning designer adds finishing touches.

    Designers were given their challenge in advance—taking donated men's clothing from a local dry cleaner and transforming them into chic feminine looks—and had only four hours to make it work.

    The runway competition was fierce. The runway competition was fierce.

    After visits to the accessory wall and the hair and make-up stations, the library was transformed into a runway. The tweens modeled their looks as judges and photographers looked on.

    The winning pair. The winning pair.

    All of the designs were absolutely gorgeous, and the competition was tight. Ultimately, a sleek, minimalist one-shouldered dress took the top prize. The winning designer got a $100 Mood gift card and both designer and model were given tickets to the Project Runway Season 11 finals. Everyone walked away a winner, with all participants receiving a Mood tote bag and a slew of other goodies from the event's sponsors.

    There's nothing we love more than supporting budding designers and we were thrilled to have been able to co-sponsor Pomonok Project Runway. We can't wait to see what these designers cook up next!

    How about you? Did your interest in sewing and design start early?  We'd love to hear about it!
