"RUNWAY is one reality show that's truly marathon-worthy." -- Grade: B
Set in Manhattan's Fashion District and hosted by supermodel Heidi Klum, PROJECT RUNWAY distinguishes itself from other reality shows by actually concentrating on talent. While shows like THE APPRENTICE may claim to pick winners on the basis of merit, the decisions of who is eliminated often seem random, or ratings-driven at best. In contrast, PROJECT RUNWAY focuses on the art of fashion design, which requires each contestant to possess technical skills like sewing, draping, and pattern-making, as well as a mastery of design principles and an understanding of what sells. In the third season of the excellent Bravo show, the 15 contestants must create a dress for Miss USA Tara Conner, come up with an ensemble design for Macy's customers, design outfits using materials from a recycling plant, and other fast-paced challenges that push the designers to the limits of their creative and technical abilities.
