PROJECT RUNWAY.....BEHIND THE SCENES BLOG of CYNDI LAUPER Challenge: RECAP, Photos!

Pose!--Models from Bravo's Season 18 "Project Runway" Cyndi Lauper Challenge-- (L to R) Garnet, Thijin, Madeleine, Stephanie, DD, Nora, Yuen, Severine and Asia in designs from (L to R) Geoffrey Mac, Brittany Allen, Sergio Guadarrama, Dayoung Kim, Chelsey Carter, Shavi Lewis, Marquise Foster, Delvin McCray, and Melanie Trygg

On Episode 5 of Bravo's Season 18 "Project Runway", the designers were tasked to design looks for the iconic CYNDI LAUPER!!! As a Consulting Producer on the show, I had the unique opportunity of yes, working on this episode, as well as making sure we paid homage to THE CYNDI LAUPER. Was she Pop? Or Punk? Or both? It was up to our designers to figure it out! We broke them up in two teams to create capsule collections based on their inspirations.

Team #1 Cyndi Lauper--Designs from Dayoung Kim, Brittany Allen, Delvin McCray, Victoria Cocieru, Geoffrey Mac and Nancy Volpe-Beringer--Season 18 "Project Runway" Episode 5 Challenge

Team #2 Cyndi Lauper--Designs from Marquise Foster, Chelsey Carter, Melanie Trygg, and Shavi Lewis--Season 18 "Project Runway" Episode 5 Challenge

Both teams went with the Pop/Punk aesthetic and each team, as well as designer, arrived at their own unique design. Here are my Being-the-Scenes photos from working on the Challenge:

Upcycled Style--Design from Season 18 "Project Runway" Designers (L to R) Geoffrey Mac, Nancy Volpe Beringer, Victoria Cocieru, Chelsey Carter and Delvin McCray--Bravo TV "Project Runway" Season 18, Brooklyn NY

Happy New Year and Happy "Project Runway" Season 18!! As a Consulting Producer on Bravo's "Project Runway", I multi-task and one of the many hats that I add to my "Multi-Task Plate" is to capture photos of the models in the finished creations of our designers. It is something I do for several reasons:
A) To make sure I know what design corresponds with which designer;
B) Memorialize the Runway Line-up;
C) For Social Media...so I can honor each of our contestants/designers with photos that they are not able to take (since they...well...cannot, since we do not allow them to have phones/cameras).

Goodwill Project Runway--Goodwill Brooklyn

For Episode 4, the designers were tasked to create Upcycled Clothing looks from Goodwill. The designers went to Goodwill Brooklyn and got recycled clothing to create a look for Karlie Kloss for a CFDA event in Paris. For some reason, many of the designers went straight to the suit jackets and pants on the racks, others got some tops, skirts, and denim as well (one designer got TWELVE PAIRS of jeans!!). I loved being a consulting producer "fly on the wall" while our designers shopped at the Goodwill Brooklyn because, frankly, I was kind of shopping myself! (Couldn't find any vintage Gucci...Darn!)

"Curated" by NYNJ Pop-up Shop--Goodwill Brooklyn

I especially loved the "Curated" Pop-up Shop/section in the store, which featured more "upscale" clothing, that had been curated by the Goodwill in-house merchandisers/stylists, like "here is the really trend-fab stuff!"

Let's get to what our contestants/designers made!!! Here are photos I captured backstage--BEFORE THE RUNWAY--of the designs from our Season 18 "Project Runway" designers:
