Project Runway Designers' Show...Plus a Ferrari or Two!

Most of my friends know I am a huge Project Runway fan.  So, when FERRARI OF SAN ANTONIO sponsored a FASHION SOUTH GLOBAL at the fabulous EILAN HOTEL RESORT AND SPA....I just had to be there.
I visited with the four talented past PROJECT RUNWAY designer-stars two days before the show.  (L-R) SAMANTHA PLASENCIA of San Antonio, MICHAEL DRUMMOND, me, MICHELLE LESNIAK (Season 11 Winner), and JOSHUA CHRISTENSEN.  I love the artistic, innovative designs which come from designers on the show and these guys did not disappoint.  Now, in the pictures below you will see a man at the right watching the show in a large black hat.  He is another Project Runway designer-star, Anthony Ryan, and he has opened a women's boutique right here in San Antonio called ANT HILL.  I plan to check it out soon.  Here are a few of the highlights from the show:



I have said before, going to shows like this are for me the same as an art museum.  I just love the creativity.  So, who did you like the best of the four?
Very sweet people and so humbled to be in the fashion world with new opportunities and associations the show has provided. "Actually," Michelle Lesniak told me. "The best part are the friendships.  I know we appear to fight a lot, but that is the fatigue and pressure talking.  We are actually all best friends!" To see complete coverage from last week, check out STYLE LUSH TV...Burgundy Woods and her team do a great job!
Who was Pam wearing?  A jacket purchased four years back from Stein Mart!  I still really like it though and think it's fun...I would not mind wearing that Ferrari at the top though...something from one of these excellent designers!

  3. What a wonderful and fun experience. I've never been to a project runway show but would love every minute of being there. How to pick a favorite? That's quite impossible, like you said, the creativity is in every piece. Pam, you look absolutely stunning as fit right in with these four.

    1. I might not wear what they sent down the runway, but it wasn't targeted for me either. I just love to see their inspiration, artistry and creativity. It does help me to be more creative with what I have at home. Thanks Cleo!

  19. I think that Ferrari looks great on you! And just the right color to go with that terrific jacket. You guys have some great events in your area - so nice that you can take advantage of that!

  21. You looked as if you owned the Ferrari. Gorgeous jacket. Very fit for such a creative show.
    I like the skirts by Michelle Lesniak best. But wouldn't mind one of those black and white sweaters by Samantha Plasencia.
