This week's "Project Runway" on Lifetime challenged the Top Five designers to create an Unconventional Design--as well as one in real fabrics--inspired by a trip to Austin Texas. I was very honored to have been part of this episode as part of the Best Western Challenge announcement along with the very dapper Tim Gunn...

As a fashion designer traveling around the world for my NV Nick Verreos line--which sells on QVC UK (London), QVC Italia (Milan) and The Shopping Channel (Canada), I have had the pleasure of partnering with Best Western Hotels & Resorts on my journeys for inspiration.

Here are some fun Behind-the-Scenes Photos from my time shooting the scene for Season 15 "Project Runway" with Tim Gunn--as well as the fab Best Western Plus Austin City Hotel location. Just so you know, it was about 110 Degrees hot--and VERY VERY HUMID, while we were filming. So much so, that while I may look all "put together" here, my entire shirt was DRENCHED, in humid sweat...But Thank Goodness for that jacket: It hid it all!

Best Western Plus Austin City Hotel Austin Texas: I loved staying at this Best western for the shoot--the location was great and EVERYONE was soooo sweet! I also REALLY LOVED the SUPER DUPER air conditioning in my room (Yeay!) and the included free breakfast!

Familia: I was also so happy that my mom and dad--Jim and Raquel Verreos--as well as my nephew Alain who drove them!--got to drive up from San Antonio which is where they live to stop by and say "Hi"! Naturally, I cried when I saw them (I'm soooo telenovela!). I can't believe that we got my nephew to smile (he NEVER smiles!)--Best Western Plus Austin City Hotel Austin Texas
