"Either you're in, or you're out!"
#Project Runway Vietnam
Finally, the top 12 contestants of Project Runway Vietnam season 1 have been revealed in a press conference yesterday in Ho Chi Minh city. As well as introducing and interviewing the 12 talented contestants, judges and models ( a lot of them came from Vietnam's next top model season 2 and 3)... The 12 designers had theirs first runway show with 12 different couture dresses which they made in a week with a budget of 1,000,000 VND.
The judges will be:
Model/actress/singer/designer, Ngo Thanh Van (instead of Heidi Klum), MC Tung Leo (instead of Tim Gunn), designer Do Manh Cuong, and last but certainly not least, Chloe Dao; Vietnamese- American designer who won Project Runway US season 2.
The winner of Project runway Vietnam will receive 500,000,000 VND, 8 fashion spreads in Harper's Bazzar Vietnam, a chance to design a dress for Ngo Thanh Van on the cover of Bazzar, a chance to work for Canifa design team, and a trip to Paris to visit Christian Dior.
The 1st challenge started yesterday right after the press conference and I heard it's tough! Apparently contestants have already started crying.
Well, game on, bitches, good luck to y'all, "make it work" and try not to get "Auf Wiedersehen" from Ngo Thanh Van anytime soon. Can't wait to see the 1st episode airs on 28th of April.
As for my part, I definitely need to improve my sewing skill and if I come back for casting next year, I promise I will get to the semi-final and win this!
