The Fashion Show

Bravo ran the first episode of their new fake “Project Runway” last night.

Since I will watch practically anything Bravo and reality (and I have no idea why… I avoided reality television for years. I have never been able to stomach “Survivor” or “American Idol”. Maybe I just like basic cable reality shows. It is hard to say.) of course I watched “The Fashion Show”.

It was just like “Project Runway” but less good.


I liked Isaac Mizrahi. Kelly Rowlands was okay. I like the fact that they had real fashion industry people as judges.

But Mizrahi is not Tim Gunn.

I don’t blame him. NOBODY is TIm Gunn except the man himself.


Don’t get me wrong, I’ll watch it again. I thought it was a good challenge and the first episode is always very busy trying to introduce everybody.

What did you think?

(or am I the only one who stayed up for this?)

ps – One thing I found very strange was that during the runway show you could hear the models walking. It sounded terrible. Couldn’t they turn up the music or edit out the footsteps or something?

  1. I didn’t watch it. I feel personally offended that they’d even dare to think they could possibly replace Tim and Heidi. No way. But I am following PR to Lifetime. Carry on!

  2. Im with ya. I thought it was pretty good, but Kelly is really gonna have to grow on me. Every time she made a comment about the clothes, I cringed. I’m not sure what she knows about fashion aside from the fact that she can afford to buy good clothing. And I like Isaac, but something about him has always gotten on my nerves. What I do know is that I love the theme of this show, just like I love PR. I think there is tons of entertainment value, as well as educational value (for those of us to care anyway) in watching these shows. So I will certainly give them a big fat chance, and I hope they do great. I really liked the concept of having a larger audience at the runway as well. Good times.

  3. I hope I don’t lose my Bravo fan cred, but I totally forgot to check it out. It’s just such a blatant PR rip-off, I don’t really want to watch it. And without Tim Gunn, there’s not any point.

    But I’m sure I will at some point get caught up on the entire season because when in doubt, I watch Bravo.

  4. I taped it, but haven’t watched it yet. I thought I could pick and choose the reality shows I watched on Bravo, but then one weekend I got sucked into a mini-marathon of the Rachel Zoe Project. And if I watch that, really, I can, and will, watch anything.

  5. I’m sticking with Project Runway and will follow them to the Lifetime channel. Tim Gunn is da man.

  6. Dang, I missed it. But they always run things a million times, so I’ll catch it. Even my totally straight husband likes Project Runway, and when I told him about this copy, he said, “But they won’t have Tim Gunn.”

  7. When Billy Gibbons sang “Every girl’s crazy ’bout a sharp-dressed man” he probably wasn’t thinking about Tim Gunn.

    But he could have been.

  8. I recorded it and watched it the next day. I enjoyed. It is not PR, but I like that it seems more about sellability. I like the concept of the mini-challenges too.

    And really, Haven, the 80’s inspired designer, she just needs to go. And Merlin too. Love Rico.

  9. I (finally) watched it this weekend. Love the fact that it focuses more on saleability like your previous commenter mentioned, but like you, I miss Tim Gunn! It’ll do while we wait for Runway.
