While this competitive reality show is a bit rough around the edges, PROJECT ACCESSORY is worth a look, especially for teens who are interested in jewelry making, sewing, or other creative, crafty endeavors. Fans of Project Runway will likely tune in, and while the show benefits from the relationship with the original program, it also suffers from the inevitable comparisons. Neither Molly Sims or mentor Eva Jeanbart-Lorenzotti are anywhere near as charismatic or helpful as Heidi Klum or Tim Gunn. Luckily, the designers are engaging and represent an eclectic mix of styles.

In an example of how this show does not translate well from its predecessor: While clothes benefit from a runway-type showing, accessories must be viewed on a nearly microscopic level, and showing them off in the runway setting seems an odd choice. While not perfect, this show could be a good choice for fashion-minded teens.
