Nine Project Runway designers presented collections at Fashion Week

The nine remaining designers on Project Runway 9 presented collections at New York Fashion Week on Friday morning. That’s actually a majority of the 16 designers, so while most of them aren’t eligible for the show’s prize, they got what they often say they want: the chance to present at Fashion Week. Designer L’Wren Scott guest judged along with Heidi Klum, Nina Garcia, and Michael Kors.

There are galleries of the collections at New York Magazine and also on Blogging Project Runway, while a Reuters video has highlights and awkward narration. And The AP has a rundown of the collections and the reception to those collections, although we certainly know that audience reaction doesn’t necessarily translate to the judging.

Ben Folds

NBC's super-fun December a capella singing competition The Sing-Off is returning, but without its star judge, Ben Folds, and only as a two-hour special. Those are really depressing changes for a series that proved itself to be a super-fun show when it returned last December.
