Christine and I don't watch many reality shows, preferring programs that give writers work instead.
However, we watch avidly the endeavor that is celebrated in Bravo's Project Runway, which returns with a new season later this month.
We hadn't noticed news of last year's winner Jay McCarroll in a while, but Christine discovered today he'll be offering a spring line at the September fashion week.
Unlike many designers--including Kenneth Cole who's reportedly using fur trim--McCarroll's going fur free in his efforts, according to a release from The Humane Society of the United States.
Given inhumane conditions at fur farms, especially those in countries where no humane treatment laws exist, it's wonderful to see a new designer taking a stand.
