If you hadn’t noticed from all the television commercials, officially recognized city celebrations, and the banner ads coating this very website, Project Runway is hurtling back to a television near you. As part of the publicity groundswell for Project’s return to the airwaves (and premiere on Lifetime), Betty Confidential spoke to judge and Marie Claire fashion director Nina Garcia, who offered previews of the new contestants and snippets from her off-camera life, including some chestnuts about her young son. One point of concern, though: When asked what was the “must-have” for this coming season, Garcia said, “a pair of camouflage cargo pants. Camo is back in a big way.” Oh, no. Not again.
