I didn't see a Season One thread so I'll just post this here.

First season Project Runway winner, Jay McCarroll's fashion documentary about his Spring/Summer 2007 NYFW show and the making thereof.

Opened in very limited release last Friday (2/20) and, fortunately for me, a theatre nearby my place was one of the lucky few showing it so I got myself down there yesterday and watched it. It was pretty hysterical, as is anything with Jay, and overall, it was very well done and extremely entertaining. Very much in the spirit of other fashion docs such as Marc Jacobs & Louis Vuitton, Unzipped and Seamless. Totally recommended for any fans of Jay, PR or fashion in general.

Oh and there's some fun cameos by Omahyra, Ajuma and a bunch of other models. And the ever-fabulous Austin Scarlett of course~

Oh, he's still working? I thought he quit fashion to be a full-time porn manager. :lol

I read that he uses albino, paraplegic, and other atypical body types in his fashion shows. I think that is cool. “Life is tough. Sometimes you fall down, sometimes you struggle, sometimes things get stuck up your ass, but you get through it.” Amen brother, amen!

I despise Jay McCarroll and I'm not big on Austin Scarlett either but even I want to check this out.

I didn't like him that much either, probably because (I think it was on a later season of Project Runway), he was coming across as a know-it-all. Eh.

TBH

I loved Jay, he's probably the best winner ever to grace PR. Or anyways, soo my favourite. Our styles are just extremely alike, even if our attitudes aren't.


Austin Scarlett? Oh, I so need to see this now.
His cameo is sooo divalicious.

He does, he talk a lil bit about it in the film and why he actually does that.
