Do any of you watch Project Runway’s: Under The Gunn? It’s like the original Project Runway (and Project Runway All Stars), with all the good parts, but without Heidi. In this newest version there are designer-mentors.
I knew we were clueless about fashion before, and seeing these programs totally sealed the deal. But we are learning, and it’s fascinating. Also, enjoyable and educational. The biggest draw, for me though, is Tim Gunn. The man is Grace personified.
He is an amazing guy, just in general. Super knowledgeable and smart about tons of shit, not only this industry. When he was a design school instructor he came up with the phrase which is our message today.
Make it work.
It’s also going to be our daily draw image. Because that’s what I was directed to share.
This all blends nicely with yesterday’s information. When we REALLY put forth the effort, with our whole being, we truly are able to make nearly anything work.
Like the designers on these shows, we have guides. We never need to go it alone. However, also like on the shows, as Tim Gunn advises, we can’t allow someone else to do it FOR us.
In order to learn, we absolutely must absorb the lesson by physically (emotionally, spiritually) doing it.
Now, everyone say it with me, in the voice of Tim Gunn, “make it work, people.” (Briskly clap three times.) “Make it work!“
is this view. It made a rainy bike ride home even more difficult. Panniers are not always my friend.
Why do all of my requests come in at once? Shit, if you need me, I’ll be over there on the couch, reading. And then, ya know, reading some more.
