Short Fuses

How can one not snap under this type of pressure?

Darlings last night's show was brought to you by Levi's. I wish they had the Levi's Euro line in America -- it's so nice.

Do you remember the really great commercials that Simon Rex and the gospel choir were in for them in the '90s? I feel like dungarees are such a staple and a multi-billion dollar business around the world. It is nice to see what they did with the creations.

Ricky made a pretty dress. It was nice to see him win. Darlings, I hope he is not sad anymore. Fashion should make you happy or you should look for another career. raterunway_01_409_220x415.jpg

I loved Christian's jeans -- they were so sexy and so sleek. This boy is so talented. So this week the room got a little warm -- I have never seen Chris get so ruffled. Nor Christian. But I understand in that environment under those hours how one could end up being a little short, not in height darlings. In fuses. raterunway_05_409_220x415.jpg

Which leaves me -- sorry my mind is racing -- Victorya went home. I have to say, I am sad she is gone. I wish her great success in all she does. I am so interested to see who is going to make it to Fashion Week. Will it be all seasoned vets or will a newbie make it in. I wonder this season because it does not seem to be about the raw talent this season. Darlings, I know who I want to be in the finals. Do you?

Darlings, I would love to see you there. I gave two tickets to Broadway Cares/ Equity Fights AIDS for my show and they are being auctioned on eBay.

Denim can be a hard fabric choice, especially when it is recycled denim. I loved Kit ... I mean Sweet P's outfit. Just kidding! That must have been a terrible feeling -- being called by the last out's name. I love that detail on her dress -- so cute and so slimming. I still cannot get over Christian's trousers. They were so hot. I would look so sexy in them ... don't you think? I have been up for too many hours -- sorry.

Imagine one day if you were standing on that catwalk and you were just drained, nothing creative was coming to you, and you had a lot of denim to work with -- what would you do? Darlings, its two weeks away from Fashion Week. I am so nervous. The collection is gorgeous. I wish you could all come. I am so excited. The hair is being done by my dear friend David Evangelista and his Cornelia salon, and the makeup is by the brilliant Margina Dennis for Make up For Ever.

I am so grateful that we have shared this journey.

I send you tremendous love. By the way, did you see my new show on Bravo.com? Let me know what you think.

You never know what tomorrow brings. One day you're in and the next you are recycling your cousin's denim and making hot shorts for your nephew who thinks he is sexy in Daisy Dukes and a striped pink polo with a matching belt and socks.That is SEXY! LOL! Sorry -- I need some sleep ....

Darlings until next week,
Chin-Chin ...

Leanne Speaks!

May we present season 5 winner of Project Runway- Leanne Marshall!

Bravotv.com: How did you feel when you won?
I was just in shock for a good couple of minutes after Heidi called my name. I was exhausted and exhilarated. It was the most amazing moment of my life.

Bravotv.com: Were you shocked by the result?
I was shocked. It was a big shock. I had hoped and I had my fingers crossed but it had been a long week and I was really sleep deprived so I didn't know.

Bravotv.com: What are you going to do with the money?
Going straight to the horse races... No, I'm actually going to re-locate to New York to further develop my clothing line. I'm actually going to hire some people to help me and hopefully show at fashion week again.

Bravotv.com: What did you think of the criticism the judges had for you?
I definitely would have had a lot more variety. I just always had in my mind, throughout doing the collection, to keep it really cohesive. Creating it I had so many different ideas and I started to go off on tangents so I was thinking that I can't do too many things with such a small collection, I had to keep it cohesive.

Bravotv.com: What did you think of the other collections?
I think Korto showed a really strong collection. I loved her colors and she makes great clothes for women. I think Kenley had some surprising pieces that looked really great on the runway. I definitely liked certain elements of Jerell's collection, the drama and the sparkle. It's very Jerell. Joe surprised me too. It was really well made. And Suede also did a really good job.

Bravotv.com: Are you prepared for your life to totally change as of tomorrow?
I'm not. After finding out and coming back I've been living my life normally as if nothing ever happened. Yes, it's going to be crazy and I'm really excited about it all.

Bravotv.com: How did you keep the secret?
I threatened to break anyone's arms who spilled. No... My family, my boyfriend, everyone was as strict as making sure that they don't say anything as I was. It's a great surprise and we want everyone to be surprised in the end. And I don't want to ruin it for anyone.

Bravotv.com: You're only the second female to win Project Runway. How do you feel about that as a female designer?
It's awesome. It's really exciting. I think there are a lot of strong female designers out there. It just so happens that a lot of the Project Runway winners are male. It's definitely about time.

Bravotv.com: Have you kept in touch which any of the other contestants?
I have been in touch with Korto and Jerrell. Also, Blayne every now and then. I definitely would love to keep in touch with them for a long time.

Bravotv.com: Where can we buy your clothing?
Go to my website, LeanneMarshall.com, and I also link to my Etsy page where I sell things online. Two shops in Portland, Oregon, Seaplane and Foundation Garments. And I just got a ton of requests so hopefully everywhere soon!

Bravotv.com: Any final words for your fans?
I'm just so touched and thank you for supporting me, coming up and saying hi and all that. I love it and I'm so appreciative of all of it. It kept me going and propelled when I was creating my collection. It's hard putting your self out there but one of the rewards is having [great fans.]
