More Emmett Love

After receiving a comment from Irene Done about the rhinestone monogram on Emmett's shirt at the end of the episode I thought Hmmmmmm.... I'll ask Emmett.

I asked whose idea it was to monogram the shirts. Who actually did it? and, Where is his shirt now? I also asked if he kept in touch with any of the designers.

Here is his response:

What a gentleman!

Dear Laura:

Thank you for your support for my participation on Project Runway.
When I opened the box with the pink shirt l thought, Oh God! But when handed the ball, you must run with it! It is a game after all!
It was my idea to wear them on the runway just to prove that it was a challenge on many fronts.
The "E" was glued on by Chloe and Kara glued on "N" for Nick onto his shirt. Nick's original shirt was put in the laundry before filming, so at the last minute l helped him whip one up out of fabric from Kara.
It was a lot of fun working with a group of talented designers. I have remained friends with all the cast members, l have special affection for Kara & Chloe.
The pink shirt l left behind as l did not think it would work in my wardrobe.

l will check out your website.
best wishes,

The pink shirt I left behind as I did not think it would work in my wardrobe : )

I loved Emmett and his huge doe eyes! He always was such a gentleman and looked so startled, as if foul language from others didn't offend but confounded him. He seems to be from another time. I wish him well!

I loved Emmett's designs, for the most part, and then the camera would pan to him and I'd become a teenage girl - swooning over the tv. sigh... ;)

Good luck, Mr. Emmett!
