So, those of you that watched last week’s Project Runway episode know who I got to speak with on Friday. If you haven’t watched it yet, go hit up your DVR and come back and read my interview!
Bryce was the latest designer to be ousted from Project Runway and he, for one, was not surprised that Heidi called his name when it came time to announce who was going home. In his words, “ I was homesick and I couldn’t focus. The uncertainty really showed in my design. I didn’t really know what to do, so I put everything in there.”
Unfortunately, the pressure of the show and the absence of his support system back home got to Bryce and ultimately contributed to him being eliminated. When asked if he agreed with the judges’ decision to eliminate him and their critique of his design he said that, “I agree in a lot of ways. It was over designed. The fit wasn’t good because I scrapped it last minute and had no more fittings with my client. There are a million reasons why the dress was unsuccessful, but those are the main two reasons. It really was a series of mistakes. The garment just had too many bells and whistles.”
As for his thoughts on the winning design, he “felt like Viktor really nailed it,” versus Josh who “edited down too much. You don’t really have a sense of Josh in that garment.” I’m going to have to go with Bryce on this one. Viktor clearly designed for his client and I think he captured her essence to a T!
I was so impressed with how well spoken and humble Bryce was. When I asked him whether being able to show at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week took the sting out of going home, he responded with, “It was a dream come true. Being at Lincoln Center was so surreal. It was nice to show the public what it is that I’m about.”
Until next time lovelies…Make sure to pop on over to Lifetime Moms to read my episode recap!
