The designers cruise through the city (you know, in their Lexuses) with the task of visiting two of three sanctioned stores from which to buy their materials. Armed with an amount of money that would cover a market-rate apartment Downtown, they shop. And gossip about the “living nightmare” that is the trio of Ken, Sue and Alexandria.

"Project Runway" Season 11 began last night, and first of all, I'd like to say the return of Heidi Klum is such a relief after an entire season of watching Angela Lindvall, who has all the charisma of hand sanitizer. I've grown to enjoy Joanna Coles, but she is no Tim Gunn. So, welcome back to the normal "Project Runway. "   The season begins with Heidi and Tim announcing that this season will be "Project Runway: Teams. " I guess I spoke too soon when I said welcome back to normal "Project Runway," guess we needed a gimmick.

The Severna Park Middle School sixth-graders huddled around swaths of different fabrics - from cotton to wool to silk - that many had worn but few took time to really look at. Earlier, they learned that polyester resists moths, "pills" are lint balls permanently stuck to aging garments and denim is derived from the French phrase "Serge de Nimes," with Nimes being the city in the south of France where denim might have originated. The students were participating in Project Runway, an interdisciplinary class that borrows its name from the designer fashion series on Lifetime.

Millions watched two seasons ago as a sharp-witted Pennsylvania native with a quirky eye for fashion took top honors on the Bravo network's breakaway reality show, Project Runway. Last week, Jay McCarroll narrowed his audience to several hundred - friends, fans and 11 family members - who crowded into the Atelier tent in New York's Bryant Park to see the first, long-awaited collection of spring ready-to-wear fashion by the designer. For the fans who loved him on the show, which is now in its third season, the collection of 28 looks was McCarroll in many ways: colorful, witty, irreverent and a tad wild.

Baltimore's divas were dressed in Helmut Lang and their highest heels Saturday night - a display of cocktail party plumage intended to knock Christian Siriano's designer socks off. Still, they were worried. Would the Project Runway finalist really approve of these shoes? What about this necklace of felt and sterling silver, which less chic individuals had previously compared to a cat toy? On TV Project Runway airs at 10 tonight on Bravo.

This week, the designers were brought to Spin, a ping pong social club owned by Susan Sarandon. The challenge is for each team (same teams) to design five looks for the employees of Spin. Three for female servers, one for a male server, and one for a ball boy (the poor guy who has to run around Spin and pick up stray balls). I'm gonna spoil it for you right now: YES, lots of balls jokes are made. No, none of them are particularly good. Dream Team is confident with Platinum Aussie saying "I'm a natural born leader" again.

The massive round metal mirror in the foyer was one of the first purchases Christian Siriano made after winning the fourth season of "Project Runway. " The two small framed Victorian paintings in the living room were passed down from his mother. And a turquoise-patterned pillow, which decorates an ivory chaise longue, is Siriano's own creation. He offers it at his newly opened namesake store, a 1,000-square-foot boutique where he sells his frocks, shoes and purses. The Annapolis native seems to have a story about every one of the furnishings and accessories in his Manhattan apartment.

It's noon, and Christian Siriano has already accomplished a lion's share of work on what he calls his "laundry list. " With his spring collection fashion show a little more than a week away, he started the day with a quick trip to his Manhattan boutique, which he opened less than a month ago. Then shoes for his spring show arrived a few hours ago and needed to be matched with garments. Also on the day's list: shipping out his fall collection to international retailers and getting ready for the looming awards season - the Emmys, to be exact.

Michelle McGinn took three weeks to complete her gold-and-fire-red dress — aptly named "The Phoenix. " Briana Angel found her dress at a bridal shop only to dismantle it and piece it back together to reflect her personal flair. Sarah Lewis designed her prom dress and recruited the owner of a local fashion house to produce the elaborate frock. Years ago, many teens would have scoffed at the thought of wearing a homemade dress instead of flaunting a stylish store-bought number. This year, a number of prom-goers will don their own creations as they show off their knack for needle and thread.
