Nudist Episode Airs This Thursday on Project Runway All Stars
In June of last year, YNA was asked to participate in a reality show that would seem like the antithesis of what we’re about.
It was a fashion competition show called Project Runway All Stars!
The show’s producers asked for 10 naturists to be part of a special episode. For this episode, the designers were challenged with making winter clothes for nudists (yes, really!).
Project Runway has been on TV for over 10 years and was originally hosted by Heidi Klum. The “All Stars” variety brings on contestants from previous episodes and is now in its 5th season. It’s hosted by actress Alyssa Milano, who is also an advocate for positive body image and public breastfeeding (and she was the major reason why we agreed to participate).
Every episode presents a new challenge for the fashion designers who must then present their creations to a panel of judges. Alyssa and the other judges pick and discuss the best and worst outfits. One designer is eliminated each week until a final winner is chosen at the end of the season.
This is the first time that the show has ever had nudists as the “models” and this was their first ever “naked runway.”
I was a model along with 4 other women and 5 men. I won’t give away too much before the episode airs. I will just say that it was a fun and interesting experience, and I will be publishing a full report about it on Friday!
So tune into the Lifetime network this Thursday, March 10, at 9 pm EST to see us in the 5th episode of this season’s Project Runway All Stars, which is aptly titled: “Birthday Suits.”
