Is It Any Good?

It may be slightly deflating to adult-age fashionistas to watch how confidently the exceedingly youthful designers drape and stitch and to see the gorgeous creations that result. Kids can make clothes? Who knew? But, since many of the adult competitors on Project Runway talk about how they started making clothing in childhood, it shouldn't be a surprise.

If you have a young artist in your house, watching Threads may prove positively inspirational. The tension of the adult version of Runway is ratcheted down a bit, and the focus is firmly on what the designers are making, with interviews at various stages of the design process. Sensitive viewers may not like watching some of the junior designers cry or stress out during the proceedings, but seeing the proud looks on their faces once the work is done is priceless. Longtime Runway fans may miss the soothing presence of Tim Gunn.
