PROJECT RUNWAY....BEHIND THE SCENES of the Season 18 FINALE: NY Fashion Week Show RECAP!

Fashion Week Nick--Nick Verreos at the Season 18 "Project Runway" NYFW Finale Show, Spring Studios NYC

Back in February, I had the pleasure of working on the Season Finale Episode of Season 18 "Project Runway". As a Consulting Producer (along with my partner David Paul) on the show, my duties are varied: From assisting in the Casting Process, consulting on the Challenges, the Episodes, being there during the filming of the actual show/competition, making sure anything related to the fashion, the clothes, the construction, the sewing machines/dress forms/pattern tables/workroom supplies are how/what/where they should be. For the Finale, I flew back to NY and Brooklyn, to be part of the final episodes. This, of course, involved the Finale NYFW Show and everything else that comes along with that...
