I'm Project Runway's biggest fan because even in the middle of finals for vet school I HAVE to make time to watch the show. I just love it. And after the episode I call my sister and discuss it of course lol.

I am the biggest, baddest Project Runway fan! I've DVR'd every single show and while I have my favorite designers, I watch them every Sunday evening to help mentally prepare and inspire my work week. I am fascinated by each and every designer and love to discuss the shows with my friends from work.

Project Runway is awesome!! I've watched EVERY SEASON including all-stars. So fun and the designers are super creative. Plus, who doesn't love Tim Gunn!?

I can't even tell you how obsessed I am with Project Runway. I have watched every season, both live and with the multiple rerun marathons.
I remember when my youngest and I would watch the 4th season with Christian Siriano. She would always sashay across the room and say, "I'm fierce!" and "Work it, girl!"

Project Runway has been a staple in my life for the past 8 years. Ever since it aired on Bravo and through the transition to Lifetime, I've been a diehard follower. No matter what stage of my life I was in, Thursdays were made to round up friends and gather around the TV to listen to Heidi dish out new challenges and Tim Gunn critique the designers amazing creations. Even now my boyfriend and I tune in every Thursday, and have a running bet every season on who will be the winner:) The fact that I can get my boyfriend to look forward to a fashion design show makes me feel like a darn good Project Runway fan! I truly love everything about this show. The passion displayed by the designers inspires me to work incredibly hard to live out my passion as a lifestyle blogger. The opportunity given to the designers by Heidi is a once in a lifetime opportunity and the mentoring from Tim makes me wish I had a coach as knowledgable and kind. I love how the show has pushed me to buy a sewing machine and experiment:) Lastly, I think the best thing about the show is that one lucky hard working person gets to live their dream out in front of the world. Seeing people's careers explode after appearing on or winning Project Runway is heart warming and I love that this show is such a wonderful platform for the designers to finally find success from their passion. I would be honored to get the opportunity to mingle with you, the HP clan, Style Coalition crew and past Project Runway contestants and learn about how they turned their passions into reality (while celebrating such a fabulous show)! Thanks for considering me!

I am Project Runway's biggest fan because each week, along with my husband believe it or not, we watch it without fail! Whether it's Project Runway All Stars or the regular season, we are in! And it's been this way since the first season. Love it!

In our society, clothes are no longer becoming a symbol of individuality. Rather, we are all starting to conform to society in our looks and clothes due to mass production. That's why I like watching Project Runway. I absolutely love the uniqueness of the designers and its quite refreshing to see such wonderful fashion creations. Plus, it's ridiculously entertaining!

Thank you
- Teresa

I shut off my phone and tablet when I watch, the only time during the week I'm offline!

Wow,What a wonderful giveaway!
I love going to costumesparty. I am in love with Project Runway. Would you say I am crazy if I say I dress up like Heidi Klum, or Tim Gunn on a costume party? or even Nina Garcia. I am not crazy, I am just a big fan :-) Thank you!

Ever since I was a little girl, I've wanted to work in the fashion industry. While life took me on a different path, I live out my childhood dreams by watching Project Runway every season. It's a weekly ritual for my mom and I, as we bond over the creativity, passion, and drive that the designers all share. I'm the biggest fan of the show and I would be ecstatic (my mom, too!) to be at the Reunion!

I am a big fan, and have been watching since the beginning. It's great entertainment and as viewers, we get SO involved with the designers and their stories. Some great designers have been launched from the show--Christian Sirano, Laura Bennet, Irina Shabeya.

Our whole family watches it, even my little niece loves it. AND WE all love Tim Gunn. Tim is da bomb! :-)

I am a big fan because I love all of the creative that comes out of it. I wish I was just 1/100th as creative as some of the competitors. Love 95% of everything they end up presenting. This show is addictive!
#13 Mary Beth (Homepage) on 2013-02-04 10:39
I'm a big fan of PR because I watch it every week, so much so that even my husband has opinions on the runway show each week!
#14 Jennifer on 2013-02-04 11:34
I am the biggest fan because I've been watching since Season 1! I'm always amazed and inspired by what the designers manage to pull off in such a short time. I

I am the biggest Project Runway fan because I have been following it for years and I love to see the designs coming to life :-). Watching it makes me want to be part of all that and be a designer as well, but I can see there is a lot behind all that.. it's not just cutting pieces of fabric. You have to study for it, and I hope at one time in my life I will be able to do that!
#16 Maggie on 2013-02-05 07:35
Project Runway is such a gift to fashion lovers. Something about watching the whole creative process from the idea/assignment, to drawing, fabic choice, fitting and styling - it nourishes a part of my soul that feels so right. I love creating, but do not have a job that allows much of it, so it is so gratifying for me to watch it and live through other people making art in the span of an hour.

Also, I appreciate the judges and Tim - their critique comes from a place of love and encouragement. I learn from them and its obvious the show is about good design and when drama is fun when it happens, but is not the point.

I would be honored to be chosen and would have so much at the Reunion Event. Thanks for considering me!

I am Project's Runway biggest fan because I am continually inspired not only by the designs that go down the runway but also by thought process that goes into making these garments. Project Runway has made me realize that fashion is an expression of one's inner thoughts. Fashion can be as deep or as shallow as the wearer would like it to be and I think that's genius. Also, who doesn't love Tim Gunn!?! Where else can you get a fashion lesson and a vocabulary lesson in one sitting? Its just so beautiful how he weaves in words like, mitigating, ubiquitous and caucus in to everyday fashion talk!
