 Nick Verreos YouTube "Project Runway Season 15 Top 5 OMG Moments"--Episode 2

Hope you have been enjoying my YouTube videos quickly recap'ing this season's "Project Runway" and my "TOP 5 OMG MOMENTS", as well as my "Project Runway" Blog Recaps.

It's the 2nd episode of the season and time to discuss what I thought were the standout moments of the "JustFab" Everyday Woman Challenge: Designing a look for the Everyday Woman of every size, age, shape...

Pasta, Flowers, Virgins...Tropico Italiano: Dolce & Gabbana Spring/Summer 2017

WHAT: Dolce & Gabbana Spring/Summer 2017 runway show. "Tropico Italiano" was the theme. The show began with a "Flash Mob"/impromptu dance party with young twenty-somethings gathering at what one is lead to believe is an Italian train station dancing to Italian tarantellas...signaling the start of a "Tropical Italian" fashion getaway a la Dolce & Gabbana. A mix of all the references Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana are famous--or infamous--for: Virgins, Italian motifs, pasta, flowers and lots of embellished sequin detail.

 "Fashion School With Nick Verreos" YouTube Video "Advanced Draping"

In my next "Fashion School With Nick Verreos" YouTube video, I give a demonstration on "Advanced Draping" and in particular I show you how to drape a one-shoulder pleated/draped top design. I begin the video with examples--from my own NIKOLAKI design line--of advanced draping looks, and then I go through the process of draping a specific design detail that I would consider "Advanced Draping"...

And DON'T FORGET to tune in EVERY WEEK to my YouTube Channel to find out what my "Top 5 OMG Moments" are for each episode of "Project Runway" Season 15!'s my "Project Runway" Season 15 Episode 1 RECAP on
Can you believe it? It’s Season 15 of “Project Runway”! If anyone would have suggested to me back when I was on Season 2 that this little show about fashion designers was going to become an icon of reality TV, I might have told them to lay off the Fashion Week Champagne. But alas—and thank goodness—here we are. I am very happy to be back blogging for and look forward to recapping the “fab” and “ay caramba!” of this season’s sartorial creations.
In the season opener, the scene is set with what looks to be a VIP showroom for Michael’s Crafts Stores, with a room decorated with candy, faux flowers, paper lanterns, plates, glasses, and Champagne. I don’t know why (maybe the fact that I was a former contestant and have been watching the show for ELEVEN years!), but I got this weird feeling in my tummy that the decorations weren’t just there to make the room look pretty.
Slowly but surely, the 16 designers are introduced as they make their way to this soiree. Some of the highlights of this introduction:
-We meet Erin from Massachusetts. She likes to design humorous, playful clothes. Oh, and she also tells us that she grew up “partially Mormon.” Take that for what it’s worth.
-Two other Massachusettsians (say that five times fast) join the season including Nathalia who says that she “wants to change the world” and Cornelius, who knows Nathalia from design school (Uh Oh!).
-Tasha resides in Shreveport, LA, and says she designs for tomboys.
-Roberi originally hails from Venezuela but now lives in Miami. (Probably a good move considering what has been happening in my former homeland)...
