If you are a Project Runway designer and ever happen to find yourself in the Windy City, you can be sure that BPR field reporter pc will be on hand. This time she got to meet Kara Janx at the Second City Style Event on Saturday, and you just know what she ended up buying, don't you?
I gladly volunteered when Tbone told me Kara would be coming to Chi-Town via the Second City Style event and would I attend to report on it. Of course, I thought, it’s Project Runway related! Also, the ever resourceful Tbone got me a free pass for the event. So off I went around 4:30 in the chilly and rainy Chicago afternoon and arrived at the Wyndham. When I arrived, perhaps it was the lateness in the afternoon or perhaps it was the bone piercing coldness that had been pervading Chicago the entire week, but there weren’t many people there, probably a dozen but not many more (I was told later there was a rush in the morning). No matter, it just meant I would get personal attention from Kara and I sure did!
After doing the initial walk-through to check out the scene, I headed to Kara’s area and introduced myself and told her I was reporting for Blogging Project Runway. I told her that the folks at BPR send her their love, especially from Laura K. At this point, Kara started to gush over how nice Laura is and we both then talked about how amazing and how far reaching the web site has been. In case you ever wondered, she definitely pays attention to the BPR site as she noted that she seemed to be very popular this past week, popping up at least 3 times. I asked her how the show has impacted her, and she said it has been nothing but positive for her in every way imaginable, just amazing.
