Back in 2004, Project Runway became an instant hit thanks to host and supermodel Heidi “auf wiedersehen” Klum and Parsons mentor Tim “make it work” Gunn. Over the past 11 seasons we’ve seen some of the most incredible (and hideous) outfits made by aspiring designers who, to put it kindly, often have a flair for the dramatic. And some contestants, most notably Christian Siriano, have gone on to create successful lines. Tonight, bring all your questions about the show to this book-launch event for author Eila Mell’s Project Runway: The Show That Changed Fashion. Previous contestants Andraé Gonzalo, Emilio Sosa, and Viktor Luna join her for what should be a lively discussion.
