Project Runway 4 auditions “found the most phenomenal designers,” Tim Gunn says

Despite a report that Project Runway 4 was having a hard time finding designers, mentor Tim Gunn says the show found enough designers for three seasons of the show.

Tim Gunn tells the Seattle Times, “We just finished auditions, and I will tell you, we found the most phenomenal designers. We could cast three seasons of ‘Project Runway’ with the talent we saw.”

Meanwhile, Tim’s book, Tim Gunn: A Guide to Quality, Taste and Style, will be released a week from today
(chapter one is online), and he says that its editors asked him to change vocabulary to dumb it down.

Of course, Tim had none of that. “The editors said, ‘Change these words, change this reference.’ And I said, you know something, I can’t do that. If this is a problem for the reader, they can sit with a dictionary in their laps,” he said.
