    Project Runway Canada

    I can't seem to find a thread for this show, has it been started and I'm just missing it? I wanted to start it if it isn't because I just saw a preview commercial for the show and it looks like it's going to be as fabulous as hoped. That clip where Iman is getting a little harsh with one of the contestants... loves it!
    MAY THE FIERCE BE WITH YOU!
    Morayo Ninalowo called me a "fast bloody snitch" and all I got was this lousy t-shirt?!

    It starts Oct. 8, right? Did you see the clip on Youtube? I went to Slice TV and saw a bunch of clips of Iman talking, but none of her with a contestant. But maybe I missed it. Kinda hard to concentrate with a 6-year-old running around.

    I'm looking forward to catching whatever info I can in the US.

    They're playing clips on tv, and yeah it had the contestants. There was 2 asian boys, and that's all I remember lol. They showed the judges talking to the contestants too, and a few of the designs on the models walking the runway. I'm soooo excited for it to start, and Iman looks, not suprisingly, GORGEOUS!!

    Evan Biddell
    Age: 23
    Hometown: Saskatoon, SK



    “I believe that a designer should be fantasizing every minute he is working with fabric. If you’re going to design something today, it’s got to be pure fantasy, to the point where someone can walk down the street living your fantasy.”

    Biddell, as he is known, is a self-taught designer. He began making clothes as an overweight 15-year-old who had trouble shopping at his local mall. From skater gear to bridal gowns, Biddell’s self-described “Street Couture” has been featured in boutiques in Calgary, Vancouver, and Victoria. He describes his aesthetic as loud and clean—clothes that get noticed.

    In addition to custom orders and creations for his Biddell line that he sells out of his shop The NuPlace, he works as a costume maker for film and television. Biddell says he is a true Leo and loves to be the centre of attention.

    Sofia Duncan
    Age: 34
    Hometown: Ottawa, ON



    “I design to accentuate a woman’s assets and hide her flaws.”


    Russian-born Sofia Duncan worked as a trained dancer before moving to Canada in 1991. She is a graduate from the Richard Robinson School of Fashion in Ottawa and a mother of three.


    Although Sofia is vegetarian, as a designer she loves to work with fur. She has her own custom line called Sofia Duncan Haute Couture and describes her line as over the top and glamorous. Previously, she was a pattern-maker at Justina McCaffrey Bridal in Ottawa.


    Vices: Watching old movies with my family and eating chocolate.
    Best outfit: An outfit that fits is the best outfit (providing it's the right style). An outfit that accentuates my assets and hides flaws.
    Worst outfit: Is the one that doesn't fit.
    Most embarrassing moment: Ripping my pants from front to back on the subway in Moscow. Same subway, pulling nylons (from the day before) from inside the pant leg of the jeans.
    First celebrity crush: Antonio Banderas in The Mask of Zorro.
    Current celebrity crushes: Matthew McConaughey in How to Lose a Guy in Ten Days.
    If you could be anyone for a day, it would be: Head designer for Gucci or Valentino.
    Dream job: Fashion designer of my own company.
    Worst nightmare: Scenes from the war and being there.
    Favourite guilty pleasure movie: Gone With the Wind, Some Like It Hot, Six Days & Seven Nights.
    What's in your purse/manbag? A source of communication (phone), a source of transportation (car keys), financial sources (bank cards) and beauty supplies. All in all, it’s my survival kit.
    Last movie that made you cry: The Notebook.
    I can't leave the house without: My purse with pen and notebook for my thoughts and sketches.
    Most annoying traits: Lip-synching or singing along with the radio.
    Your inspiration: A woman’s body, it’s shapes and curves. Flowers and colours, combinations are so unique. Architecture, especially European.
    Favourite food: Fruits—and chocolates, of course.
    Favourite piece of clothing: A Lacroix suit, very elegant.
    Best song for sketching: I mostly like to sketch without any music. If I need to put myself in a mood, I listen to Sinatra for elegant clothing, and upbeat Justin Timerblake for trendy clothing.

    Age: 25

    Best outfit: Marc Jacobs' oversized cardigan (belted with a big Fendi belt) and over-the-knee Versace boots.
    Worst outfit: Anything I wore in the 90s (think J. Crew yuppie…ick).
    Most embarrassing moment: Falling asleep on a sidewalk in China outside a chic members-only club in Shanghai dressed in a couture gown after one too many glasses of champagne.
    First celebrity crush: Joey from New Kids on the Block (sad but true).
    Current celebrity crushes: Lenny Kravitz, Jamie Burke and Scott Weiland.
    If you could be anyone for a day, it would be: Me, but Kate Moss is a close second.
    Dream job: Have it already: creating my own line! Next step is getting major distribution.
    Worst nightmare: Not getting my collection picked up at major stores next season (but that's not going to happen).
    Favourite guilty pleasure movie: Mean Girls.

    I can't leave the house without: Cell phone, BlackBerry, iPod, curled eyelashes with mascara, concealer and blush on face.

    Favourite food: Spicy tuna rolls, salmon sashimi - anything Japanese (Italian comes in a close second).
    Favourite piece of clothing: Belstaff waxed cotton motorcycle jacket, Proenza Schouler red sequin tank, all of my shoes and my new summer collection!
    Favourite designer: Azzedine Alaia and Cristobal Balenciaga.
    Best song for sketching: Can't be just one song, it has to be a mix of whatever I'm feeling at the moment. Right now it's Bloc Party, Carina Round, Jarvis Cocker, K-os and Feist. It changes every week (if not every day).
