Project Runway leads to Austin

Well the new season of Project Runway premiered last night, and it looks like Chloe Dao is not the show's only Texas connection.

You may have caught a glimpse of the Austin Chronicle's Stephen Macmillan Moser. Oh, you say you missed him? Watch the rerun for the the part where they talk about the designers classified as "what were they thinking?". You can read his take on it here.

Secondly, from the people who brought you First Night, here's Project Pinway. After a glut of buttons were accidentally ordered for the festival, Project Pinway aims to get rid of them by offering the pins to designers and holding a contest for the most creative use. With half of the Austin Craft Mafia already on board, you had better sign up early or miss out. Make it work!
