12 contestants under the age of 18 compete to win a full scholarship to FIDM in California, a full sewing and crafting studio from ®brother, a feature in seventeen magazine, and $25,000 to start their own line.
Heidi Klum hosts a reality series where aspiring fashion designers compete for a chance to break into the industry. Each week, a designer is eliminated from the competition after exhibiting their work in front of a judges' panel.
Under The Gunn is a nice change from the original Project Runway with the trashy Heidi Klum. In saying that I feel that Tim Gunn does not shine on this show. He is surrounded by a bunch of amateurs and quite a few weak designers. Nobody is giving Tim the respect he deserves and the rules have been thrown out the window. Everything is absolute chaos. I'm also not sold on the mentors. Nick needs to step back and stop micro-managing, Anya needs to take that i'm better than you scowl off her face and Mondo needs to put the short-shorts to rest; although he is the best out of the three.
I find the challenges to be exciting yet classic. It makes it easier to envisage the looks in real life and to evaluate them. But that is probably the reason why you would want to keep watching this show. Through all the craziness this is the one thing that stays consistent. No matter what issues this show has it is still enjoyable to watch. I think the second season will give it a chance to find its way and I look forward to Tim Gunn shining in the spotlight.
