Toilet Bowl Dye Job a Winner on Project Runway

September 13, 2009

(ChattahBox)—Last week’s episode of Lifetime’s popular fashion reality TV show, Project Runway, was full of the usual cattiness between competitors and god-awful creations that earned a perplexed look from host, Heidi Klum as the look came down the runway.

But, the winning outfit designed by Ra’mon-Lawrence Coleman offered a little something extra, extra. The frantic designer, running out of time and ideas, as the hours ticked by, grabbed his hideous black neoprene cat suit off the mannequin and dyed it in the toilet.

Tim Gunn, 56, the real star of the show, told People magazine that he found designer Ra’mon 31, in the men’s room plunging a blob of neoprene fabric in the toilet bowl, frantically trying to dye the dark fabric into more appropriate colors of sea green and olive.

“What the audience didn’t see is me going into the men’s room, saying to Ra’mon, would you please get that neoprene thing out of the toilet? If you’re going to dye it, dye it in the sink. It’s more hygienic,” said Gunn.

Ra’mon needed a deep basin to dye the fabric and, as time was running out he resorted to the closest available basin with water in it. It just happened to be in the men’s toilet.

[Y]ou’ve got to get it out of there. Get it out. Out, out, out,” Gunn told Ra’mon. The innovative designer, complied and finished dyeing the fabric in a sink, and that’s what the audience saw.

When Gunn announced to the harried designers that their time to complete their looks was running out, Ra’mon’s now green neoprene, dyed in a modern camo print, had been transformed to an avante garde, off the shoulder top and matching skirt, but it was still wet.

His model was aghast and she at first refused to wear a wet toilet bowl dress down the runway, but Gunn stepped in and told her to be a professional and “carry on.”

“It was one big hot mess,” said Gunn. “I had a showdown with her in the sewing room about how you’re a professional, this is what you have to do.”

Despite all the drama and the last minute toilet bowl dyeing, Ra’mon and his damp neoprene creation took top honors.
