This Thursday, the fashion and reality TV orgy that is Project Runway will premiere its eighth season on Lifetime at 9 pm. While many of us at BARE already love Tim Gunn, Heidi Klum and their ever-flamboyant onscreen antics, there is a special reason to watch this season. In BARE’s Spring 2010 print issue, we featured three up-and-coming San Francisco designers: Bacca da Silva, Colleen Quen and Christopher Collins, the latter of whom will be a competitor this season! According to 7x7, the show has already been in production for over five weeks and Collins has yet to be sent home. Hopefully his breezy, feminine designs (which San Francisco first lady Jennifer Newsom donned in our Fall 2009 issue) will take him to the top! Until then, we’ll be munching on our 100-calorie popcorn every Thursday night.
