During the Renaissance, cabinet of curiosities came into fashion as a collection of objects that would often defy classification. As a precursor to the modern museum, the cabinet referred to room(s), not actual furniture, of things that piqued the owners interest and would be collected and displayed in an aesthetically pleasing manner. Collectioun of Cunnynge Curioustes is my 21st century interpretation of that idea.

Season 12 has started and some changes are afoot, like having Tim Gunn sit on the runway walks and also usomg his powers to pull someone from the edge, are too early to see if they will work or not. I am thrilled they have done away with all the team challenges as they did as the twist in Season 11, but can’t they just stop fucking with the recipe and leave it be? I also miss Michael Kors something awful, which surprised me, considering I was side talking him all the previous seasons. There are some designers I’m ready to gouge their eyes out (hello #designerTimothy), but even this doesn’t necessitate good television. Has Project Runway lost its edge?
