POLISHED EDGE: Celebrity Q&A
Cynthia Rowley of ‘24 Hour Catwalk’ on Lifetime
Q: Are you having fun on the show?
A: It’s way, way, way too much fun! I have done all of those “Project Runway” (shows), and I love hanging out with Michael Kors and Nina Garcia and Heidi Klum, and it is super fun. But for me the reason to do the show was Alexa Chung, Derek Blasberg and James LaForce are hilarious.
Q: What do you hope viewers take?
A: Because it is episodic and it is fun to see a winner every week, it is kind of a feel-good show in that way.
Q: Do you see this as different from the other design shows?
A: This -- because there are seamstresses, sample makers, and they also make patterns and they work as a team -- it is a different sort of dynamic in the way the work is created, and so it is a full-on runway presentation. It is interesting because I think you learn through the creative process, watching a lot of other components of the industry and through the judging, there is takeaway with that. Because James LaForce is the great PR bigwig, and he really asks questions about marketing and presentation and the PR side of it, and how are you telling your story, and what is your message in the collection. And it is interesting to learn about that part of it. And I ask a lot of technical and design things. And Derek is a writer and understands the editorial side of it. You are getting a broad view of the industry, and we really try to keep it funny and fun and not mean-spirited.
