When Tim Gunn and Heidi Klum left “Project Runway”, it sounded like they had a good new venture in the offing and we eagerly awaited its arrival. And waited and waited. Meanwhile, we kept watching the retooled “Project Runway” but even with our fave Christian Siriano, it just wasn’t the same and we stopped watching altogether.
Now, luckily, Tim and Heidi have announced their return, platformed on Amazon Prime, debuting on March 27th!
“Making the Cut” is pretty much…”Project Runway” with smart enhancements. Instead of just throwing challenges at the contestants that were frankly puzzling and seemingly irrelevant to being real fashion designers (I mean, miserable team challenges with people you don’t know and would never work with in real life?), this is geared towards challenging the contestants in terms of both artistic and business success, incorporating the synergy with the platform by selling each week’s successful outfit on Amazon, and at the end, providing one winning designer with $1 million to invest in their business plus a chance to sell their entire line on Amazon, as well.
Sounds great to me! I’m glad Tim and Heidi are finally back.
