It wasn't Fashion Week, a trip to Coyote Ugly or even her brother's upcoming nuptials that finally wore her down. It was the Fashion Project at Tamarac Square.
On Saturday, The Cat's Pajamas spent nine hours trapped in a room judging more than thirty applicants -- all of whom were dreaming of scoring the two tickets to fall Fashion Week in New York. Even if the winning designer won't be showing on those hallowed catwalks, it's a major prize since you can't just call up Ticketmaster and order seats. Oh no, those are more coveted than Denver Broncos season tickets.
There were twelve, however, who impressed us and will move beyond the auditions and into the Project Runway-esque challenges portion of the event. You'll get to meet them here before you meet them on the runway. Starting tomorrow, Cat will post a profile of each of the finalists, probing their deepest fashion secrets.
Eat your heart out, Heidi Klum!
