TV/Fashion Cross-Over

According to WWD there will be several new designers debuting collections at Fall/Winter 2010 New York Fashion week which starts this week.

One of these new designers is 2nd season Project Runway runner-up Daniel Vosovic. Because of his success selling a small capsule collection online following his stint on the show Vosovic decided to show a full collection at NY fashion week. His first show was in connection with the TV show and now he is branching off on his own.

Vosovic's style was and continues to be off of the show very tailored and simple.

Here is an image from his Project Runway fashion show:

Gone are the days of designers being celebrities only for their clothes. It seems to be successful designers should be celebrities first and to become celebrities for who they are not what they design. The name is everything in other words.

Personally I like Project Runway and do not mind the designers from the show, as long as they are good, becoming famous from the show, but it is another thing for Lindsay Lohan to be allowed to design for a real fashion house with no prior experience when thousands of worthy designers are struggling to find work. But that is another post for another day.

    I think just like you. Celebrities should stick with what they know about. Not start selling perfumes, pretending to be designers and that stuff...
