    Darin Hartmann
    Age: 43
    Hometown: Bashaw, AB


    的 am extremely aggressive when it comes to tailoring. I like to have things that are finished, polished.


    With more than 17 years in the fashion industry, Darin Hartmann has the most years of experience of all the designers in the competition. Darin studied fashion design at Kwantlen College in Vancouver before starting his own line ICICI. He describes his line as elegant and sophisticated for curvy women who are confident and expressive with a unique taste for the avant garde.


    Darin has also worked extensively as a costume designer on a variety of films and creates custom garments for private clientele.


    ... I'm guessing he was eliminated before they could do the interview?

    Re: Project Runway Canada

    The designers meet their host, Iman, on a glamourous yacht and are given 30 minutes to create an outfit with very limited materials. Later the designers learn the competition has only just begun and they must now each create an innovative look using only the clothes from another competitor痴 suitcase.

    Re: Project Runway Canada

    If you look at all the "behind the scenes" photos on the website there's no pictures of Darin, Marie or Sophia, and after reading all the designers bios I thought, those are the first three to go lol so I'm probably right.

    My predictions so far for elimination order, based on nothing solid at the moment lol:

    1st out: Darin
    2nd out: Sophia
    3rd out: Marie Genevieve
    4th out: Kendra
    5th out: Michael
    6th out: Steven
    7th out: Evan
    8th out: Shernett
    9th out: Carlie

    Top three: Lucian, Lincoln, Megan

    I think Lucian will be first, Lincoln second and Megan third but, I'll likely change my mind after the first episode... we'll see!!!
