WHEW!!! All day yesterday my sonic wall filter at the school where I teach was blocking BPR!!! THAT was 8 hours of torture!

Seems like I'm able to get on today - thank God!!!!

UGH!!!!!

Love the slideshow! His holiday collection looks amazing.

1. The collection is beautiful. I guess he shouldn't be labelled as *menswear designer* any more.

2. He is so cute, isn't he? And his sister is so sweet and adorable-every time we go to my son's college, I see the sign for the facility where she's working and think of what a cool story and person she is.

3. All of the designers look great, don't they? Chloe and Kara are so radiant and Zulema looked great-good for them all!

Why do I feel like I could never like the season 3 folks as much as these guys? I'm sure we will once we get to see them and (sort of) know them, but somehow, PR2 seems special.

This is a better spread than Elle gave Jay last year. Then again, Emmett is actually taking advantage of the opportunity PR has provided.

I think Emmett did Project Runway for all of the right reasons ... he actually wanted a springboard to a new career. He was smart enough to take advantage of the opportunity.

PRaddicted, I thought the same thing. How could I possibly like season 3 designers as much as season 2?

I think this whole crop of designers have been much more business savvy and able to take advantage of the media attention. In some ways, they benefited from watching what happened to the 1st years crop of designers. They were ready to strike while the iron is hot.

Bravo for Emmett and all the designers who have managed to turn this show to their advantage. Frankly thats the only reason I could see to put myself out there in that way.

I know, sometimes I wish I had started BPR with Season One! We've learned so much about these designers. I only hope that the Season Three contestants will be as friendly and generous with their fans!

I respect Emmett's style and grace more and more with everything I read about him. From the start of PR2, I thought he was cute and wonderful in an effortless, understated way. (Crush!)

For those of you who have dropped by E=MC2, what is the price range of the accessories or less-expensive items? I'm going to NY with my sister, and I want to stop by the store. My sister, who is so terribly fashionable (especially in comparison to me) and more of a high-end shopper, I'm not concerned about, but am I going to be out of my league? What can I expect to pay if I get an overwhelming desire to purchase something from Emmett's wonderful little shop?

Ooh, lovin' that scruffy five o'clock shadow! Lookin' good, Emmett!

It was nice to see all the designers coming out to support Emmett's event (including Jay! W00t!).

It's possible to even buy an Emmett PR tee-shirt at his store. (I bought one for my step-daughter).The Diana fuse necklaces were going for about $75. The belts and bags were going for moderately upscale prices but I have to say they were priced right for the quality and craftsmanship.
