This past Thursday night was the Premiere of Season 17 of "Project Runway", back on Bravo TV, the network that aired the first FIVE seasons of the reality competition show--of which I was part of in Season 2 and judged in Season 6. I am a Consulting Producer on the show and was lucky enough to have exclusive access to the behind-the-scenes action. Instead of recap'ing each episode, I will post fun "backstage" photos of what went on while doing my consulting producing duties.

First up is the Premiere Episode. For this first episode, the designers/contestants were asked to bring designs from home that best represented who they were as designers to a party-like atmosphere so the show's judges--Supermodel Karlie Kloss, Elle Magazine Editor-in-Chief Nina Garcia, Designer Brandon Maxwell and Journalist/Editor and former Editor-in-Chief of Teen Vogue, Elaine Welteroth--could ascertain the new designer's aesthetic. Here are photos from the first episode "party", as well as backstage model photos with the designer's designs + more--Enjoy!

PROJECT RUNWAY....Proud to be a Consulting Producer on the NEW "Project Runway" on BRAVO TV

 Nick Verreos, Project Runway Season 17 on Bravo TV

I am proud to announce that in addition to all my other job descriptions, I can now add "Consultant/Producer". Last year, I was hired as a Consulting Producer on the NEW "Project Runway" returning to the Bravo Network. This will be the 17th Season of the show--of which I was a designer/contestant back in 2005 on Season 2.

Casting Veteran--Nick Verreos, "Project Runway" Castings, various seasons

I have also judged Season 6 and have been a Casting Judge for more than ten seasons, beginning back in Season 3, and blog'ed many a season as well. As a designer, co-owner of NIKOLAKI and NV Nick VerreosCo-Chair of Fashion Design at the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising/FIDM and former contestant on the show, I was happy to take on this position, bringing my expertise and knowledge of the fashion industry for more than thirty years as well as behind-the-scenes know-how on what is needed to give designers on the show the opportunity to be successful within every challenge--from the pattern  tables, sewing machines, dress forms to...how long the challenges should be.

ICE STYLE.....Attending the 2019 ISU Four Continents Championships: BLOG RECAP!

 David Paul, Nick Verreos, 2016 Skate America Silver Medalist Mariah Bell and Johnny Nicoloro--2019 ISU Four Continents Figure Skating Championships Honda Center Anaheim CA

Last month, David, our very good friend, Johnny Nicoloro and I had had the WONDERFUL pleasure of attending the 2019 ISU Four Continents Figure Skating Championships in Anaheim California. First off, we LOVE FIGURE SKATING...second, we all needed a short excursion and time to just not do anything, except watch figure skating so it was a WIN-WIN! We had a blast attending the Ladies Final as well as Men's Final (David and Johnny also went to Pairs competitions without me because I had to drive to San Diego to be at the FIDM San Diego Open House event). Besides seeing the events, it was also nice to run into some of the sport's A-List skaters such as Mariah Bell and the fabulous Starr Andrews. We (OK, I!) was FAN-excited! Here are photos for the weekend:
