Bravo’s “Project Runway” Replacement

Since the “Project Runway” fiasco hasn’t been sorted out yet, Bravo has a new fashion competition to replace their signature show, which may or may not be heading over to Lifetime. It’s called “The Fashion Show,” and it “will follow professional designers as they strive to make their mark in the dog-eat-dog world of fashion and compete for a chance to have their designs sold for the mass retail market.” The show will debut later this year, and Bravo wants us to pick the last designer to join the competition. After the jump, two potential contenders. The Fashion Show on Bravo

Andrew, 35, LA

  • Known as the “Panty-Christ” because he designs a line of underwear sold at Kitson, Patricia Field, and Fred Segal
  • Self-described “gaylebrity”
  • Hopes to one day have a retrospective of his works shown at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art
  • The Fashion Show on Bravo

    Elise, 24, Chicago

  • Taught to sew by her mother and grandmothers
  • Has an eponymous label
  • Cared for her mother, who had brain cancer, and is carrying out her mother’s wish that her children “do something great with their lives.”
  • Elise is cute and likable, but Andrew would make for better TV. I mean, he calls himself a “gaylebrity” and the “Panty-Christ.” This guy is a catch-phrase waiting to happen. Visit Bravo’s website to check out their designs and vote.
