Project Runway “designs are all the property of Bravo”; reunion airs tonight.
Although Project Runway focuses on the creativity of the designers (well, that and their relentless bitchiness), participating in the show meant giving up the rights to their work. In a wide-ranging interview, Austin Scarlett tells The Advocate that “The designs are all the property of Bravo, so I didn’t get to keep anything at all. They whisked it all away during the filming.” He says that Bravo “put all the winning designs on display for a while at Rockefeller Center and then auctioned a lot of them off.” Austin also dishes on the other contestants, warming us up for tonight’s reunion episode featuring all the designers. Austin specifically mentions Wendy, saying, “When she eliminated Kevin, that was pure evil and it was not edited at all. She was really that evil.”
+ plus: Nancy O’Dell wore a significantly modified version of Wendy Pepper’s dress to the Grammys.
