‘Project Runway’ 10th Anniversary Party

The High Line. July 17, 2012. By Katie Van Syckle

Do people get nervous about what they’re wearing around you? “I am not judgmental. I live in New York. If I were judgmental, I would never leave my house. I say to people, I don’t care how you are dressed as long as you accept responsibility for it, that’s all.” —TIM GUNN

FRANCISCO COSTA

How are you handling this heat? “I emotionally melt down when it is over 85 degrees out. I walk outside and feel like crying.” Do you actually cry? “Yes. You can ask my husband.” —STACEY BENDET

DEBBIE HARRY

PING WU

What do you think of Katie Holmes’s line presenting at fashion week? “I didn’t even know she had a line. Someone must be making it for her. If she makes it in New York City, I will help her do it!” —NANETTE LEPORE

KENLEY COLLINS

VIKTOR LUNA

Anything we can look forward to this season? “There is a very sweet challenge involving food, like desserts and cupcakes.” —HEIDI KLUM

FERN MALLIS

JOSHUA MCKINLEY

How would you have done on Project Runway? “I would have not done well, to be completely honest. I can make patterns and I can sew, but if I had to make a dress out of fruit or trash or something, I don’t know if I could do it.” —REBECCA MINKOFF

MONDO GUERRA

RAYMUNDO BALTAZAR

What are you up to, eight years out of Project Runway? “I am launching my own collection in the fall — my first full-on collection. I’ve spent years developing a solid business plan and raising money for it. It’s couture evening wear and wedding gowns.” —AUSTIN SCARLETT

CHRISTIANE LEMIEUX

KIMBERLY GOLDSON

How does it feel to be back with the Project Runway folks? “It’s like a wax museum in here.” Why, because it’s so hot we’re melting? “No, because we are all here on display for the marketing people at Lifetime.” —JAY MCCARROLL
