Deadline.com is reporting that a new Project Runway spin-off is in the works. Whereas previous incarnations of the former Bravo hit have focused on the models, Tim Gunn, and former contestants, the next spinoff will be all about the accessories.
If handled properly, this could be a pretty good show. My main problem with the last few seasons of Project Runway is that they’ve gotten so far away from the actual construction of the garments and headed down a road of backstabbing, name calling, and overall ugliness that the intent of the show seems to be lost in translation.

However, it could have a reverse effect. Making gowns takes a tremendous amount of time and effort, so if that was deemed not “exciting” enough for TV, what’s to stop a show about accessories (an aspect of fashion that likely takes less time to create, therefore providing less footage) from being a continuation of the current incarnation of Project Runway?
