Boston Field Report: Sam Donovan Collection

BPR ace field reporter Tina G. stayed out past her bedtime last week to catch the new collection from Under The Gunn favorite Sam Donovan at the Liberty Hotel in Boston. Nothing but raves from a pretty discerning eye:

Who is she and where is she going?  Tim Gunn might come to mind when you read this phrase, but it’s also a phrase that Sam Donovan, fashion designer and first runner-up on Lifetime’s Project Runway: Under the Gunn, draws from when designing clothing.  He stresses the importance of this phrase, especially for young designers.

Those of us who were lucky enough to attend Sam’s latest show also wanted to know How could we be her?  Sam’s show, a part of The Liberty Hotel Boston’s Fashionably Late series, included pants, tops, dresses and even a jumpsuit. Sam has a knack for designing fashionable items that women of any age can wear.

BPR Interview with Emily Payne

Project Runway Season 13 designer, Emily Payne, talks about her experience on the show.

A highlight:

BPR: Although you were eliminated, you still showed a collection at Fashion Week. Please tell us about your inspiration and process. 

EP: I took the look from the makeover challenge as inspiration. I work at Britex so it was easy for me to find some awesome fabric. The judges seemed to really respond to that one. It was really me.  I took the look and tried to make more wearable designs. 

BPR: Which was your favorite look? 

EP: The first one.

Austin Scarlett Bridal, Fall 2015

Project Runway All-Star, Austin Scarlett, presented his Fall 2015 Bridal collection and BPR Field Reporter, Jennifer Mara sends us this report.  Thanks Jen!

Sunday morning at Grand Central Station I'm excited and about to walk into the Austin Scarlett Bridal Show for Fall 2015. Austin knows elegant while also taking fun and comfort into consideration. An array of rotating models told me so as I watched them easily move with a grace and a personality that was illuminated by each dress. 

The dress presentation was in the clear style of a Scarlett show- with a great big nod to Gone With the Wind...his all time favorite. The first time Austin watched Gone With The Wind he was twelve years old and he watched it straight through, "so now that I am somewhat a part of it, -this is a dream come true for me and it's like coming full circle because it (Gone With the Wind) was my ultimate. That first time I watched it, I was like This. Is. It." 

BPR hearts Jen and Austin!
