Smells a lot like "Project Runway" to me...

...but who really cares?

I know I will still be watching. I think that Mizrahi has the potential to be just as much of a "charactar" as Tim Gund and Kelly Rowland has GOT to be better than Heidi Klum...

Premiers on May 7th, and I cannot wait!

Are you with me?

From the Website:
The Fashion Show premieres on Bravo on Thursday, May 7, 2009 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. Fifteen professional designers will compete in this fashion creative competition series for a chance to have their designs sold in the retail market and win a $125,000 prize.
Internationally acclaimed designer Isaac Mizrahi shares hosting duties with four-time Grammy Award-winning performer and actress Kelly Rowland. Mizrahi and Rowland will also serve as judges alongside fashion luminary and Senior Vice President of IMG Fashion, Fern Mallis.
Each week the designers will be put to the test and will have to face off in two challenges – the Harper's Bazaar Mini Challenge, judged by the magazine's Special Projects Director Laura Brown, and the elimination challenge. In the end, America will choose which contestant will have a clothing line available for retail and win the $125,000 prize.

Summer Intern(s) Wanted

I am once again looking for a summer intern or two this summer. You must fill the shoes of the last summer interns (left), and that is going to be quite a feat!

Kerry, Heather & Sara were all hard workers who took on projects with ease and loved learning new things about having your own small design business.

Here is how the ad I posted on Craigslist reads:

Attention College students interested in a career in fashion, merchandising or someone looking to have their own DIY business. We are M Avery Designs, LLC and we design, produce and sell our line of bags and accessories in our studio / boutique in Hoboken NJ. We also teach sewing & crafting classes to kids and adults.

We are looking for a summer intern for summer 2009. Schedule is very flexible. You MUST be very comfortable using a sewing machine! We are willing to work with your school to get you credit for this internship.

Duties will include, but not limited to:
-Helping with production (ie Cutting fabric, ironing, cutting patterns, sewing piece work, etc)
-Helping with sewing classes, both for adults and kids.
-"Brick & Mortar" Store management and maintenance.
-Online store management & maintenance.
-Way more that we can talk about when we interview you

PLEASE spend some time on our website and get to know our business before you contact us.

PS: We do have a shop dog that hangs out occasionally. Please do not apply if you are allergic or afraid of dogs.


Project Runway - This SUMMER - On Lifetime

Well Hallelujah! They have come to some sort of agreement in court and the *already taped* 6th season of Project Runway will air. (Sigh of relief)

It's coming on this summer and it will be aired on Lifetime.

I suppose this is a little annoying because who likes to watch TV in the summer. But thanks to Adam, we have a DVR now and that is going to come in really handy!

Here is the article from the AP.
