"As I said on my reviews of Project Runway - The Complete First Season and PProject Runway - The Complete Second Season, this show had me hooked immediately, and Season 3 was no exception. Thanks to this season's designers, I actually enjoyed this season more than season 2. Some of the creative challenges include: creating an outfit made out of items found in the designer's living space; designing a gown for Miss USA in the Miss Universe Pageant; making matching outfits for a dog and its owner and creating a background story for the owner (actual dogs modeled the outfits on the runway!); and one of my faves, using materials from a recycling plant in Jersey!
Yes, there is some drama on this season (two designers accused of "foul play", one designer being rude to another's mother), but as before, the drama does not overtake the creativity that is this show's hallmark. Another wonderful thing about this show is how there is also a nice age range of the contestants (one of my faves is a 40-something mom of 5 children with another on the way during the show!).
Extras on the DVD include:
1. "WEAR Are They Now?" featurette: curiously, this time they eliminated one of the Project Runway Season 3 winners, with no explanation of why there is no update for the missing designer (I will not reveal the names so as not to spoil the series for anyone).
2. "WEAR Was He Then?: Tim Gunn, Making It Work" featurette: a nice mini documentary on Gunn (can you believe this very formal guy was inspired by pop-up books as a kid?!?). Gunn definitely seems more human after watching this.
3. Tim Gunn's Season 3 Blog: contains Gunn's commentary on the individual designers/episodes
4. Designer Bios
5. Outtakes presented by L'Oreal Paris"

"Project Runway is an incredible show that attempts to find the next big fashion designer. Contestants have a design challenge each week, ranging from making clothing out of cast-off mail packaging to designing outfit for each others mothers to creating a look for a beauty queen. The worst designer is kicked off each week until there are three finalists who create collections to show in New York's Fashion Week.
This season has a talented cast, each with their own very distinct styles and entertaining personalities. For example, there is Jeffrey, the tattooed, rock-and-roll oriented designer who has a rough past. Michael Knight has an affinity for designing for the female body. Laura is a classy, sophisticated mother of six. Kayne is a pageant designer who loves sparkle. Vincent is a designer who flourished in the 80s and is making a comeback to the field he loves.
The personalities make the show, but the challenges are entertaining, the work the designers do is beautiful, and the judges always have something sharp to say. For anyone who loves the fashion world, and even for those who don't, this is a highly entertaining show, and a reality show in the true sense. There are no scripts and the prizes have a real impact on the winner's life."
Good show as always

"I love seeing the beautiful (or sometimes hideous), innovative pieces of clothing come together piece by piece, and then either admiring or laughing at the finished product on the runway. I don't think the social dynamic of the group is quite as good as the last two seasons, too many jerks and not enough fun and friendship, which is why I didn't give it five stars. If you like pretty clothes or are interested in sewing or clothing design, it's still worth the price."

"Okay, I love Project Runway. Who doesn't?? Even Oprah is a fan (did you hear she sat in on the audition judging panel for Season 5?)
Although Season 3 was not my absolute favorite (Come on, create fashion from recycling materials? Ewwww...where's the silk?) I had to have it- if only to re-watch the episodes with the Moms. Funny how meeting the moms of Michael Kors and Jeffrey Sabella really gives you a different perspective on the guys. To balance the trip to the Waste Management Plant, we did get to go along on the trip to Paris... Tres magnifique. And don't forget the Dogs, and creating a pageant gown for Miss USA... (was there anyone who thought Kayne WOULDN'T win? I doubt it...)
Like the first two, Season 3 has sew much to love (sorry).
