    Project Runway 16 (premieres Aug. 17th) - News & Speculation

    There isn't a lot of information out there yet, but it was announced that PR16 will premiere earlier than usual this year, on Thursday August 17th.

    It could be that they are trying to time things better with September Fashion Week, so that they don't have to show decoy shows for the entire cast, or risk major spoilers coming out as the season is just beginning.

    I don't usually use links to Inquisitr.com, but this article does a good job of gathering lots of stray bits of information on social media from the past couple of weeks:

    More plus-size models this season! And the designers aren't happy! I'm SHOCKED!

    I can't wait for this to start again, but please, no more shady contestants who are only interested in tearing others down like the gruesome twosome from season 15. I don't understand why the producers thinks the audience likes these types, because I sure don't. I find it interesting that neither one had found jobs as of the taping of the reunion show, while Roberti, Laurence, and others were working in their field. Hmmm...maybe because future employers saw how you acted on the show?

    The cast list is posted at the PR/Lifetime website:

    Among the designers are Claire and Shawn, the twins from the VH-1 reality show Twinning. Hmm...

    My early pick is Samantha..... ...... but I noticed she does a lot of things sleeveless. I hope that's by choice and not that she has trouble sewing sleeves.

    I wasn't overly excited over any of them. Some of them were WTF to me. I personally like pattern and color, and the twin (Shawn?) that did the leather jackets appealed to me. I also liked some of Margarita's things.

    I will be rooting for Deyonte, since he lives in the same city as me. I will be keeping my eyes open around the hood for him. Haha! I also liked his designs. Not to over the top.

    It seems like there are more over the top designers this year, but maybe it's just me. I know the judges like the weirder, the better. I look for things that the average person could wear.

    Good luck to them all.

    I wonder what Samantha and Sentell will say about that? Especially since Sentell made a point of telling the judges that she designs for the ordinary woman. For once, I hope sparks will fly.
