Ok people! It's finally here -- Project Runway 3 and I'm ready to be hooked on to TV again. It's tonight at 10pm on Bravo. More fashion challenges, cool designs, catty designers, Heidi's auf weidersein, Michael Kors' comments, and my favorite crush Tim Gunn. There's one gal from San Francisco, Stacey Estrella, who I'm looking forward to see her design work considering she's been working in high-tech here in the valley. But I don't have any picks yet because it really has to be about the work, ya know.

So these last couple days I've been talking with my friend and Project Runway 2 veteran Diana Eng about what she thought about this new season. Diana went to the PR3 premiere party last night in NY and got to meet the whole new cast. Here's what she says.
Nat: What advice would you give to the new designers of Project Runway?
Diana: I think the new designers should try to think of the show as a fun experience and make the most of it.
Nat: What did you take away from the whole experience?
Diana: The show was a lot of fun, and openned many doors and opportunities for me. It also helped me to develop as a person and a designer. I learned how to wear make-up and formed a stronger personal design philosophy.
Diana: The season 3 folks are really nice! Katheryn is also from RISD, and we got along really well. She's very nice and laid back.
Thanks Diana for the quick chat!
