Video games use to be the domain of males in their teens who’s social skills were more comfortable at home in front of a screen with a controller in their hands. Now everyone who can afford a game console can have a whirl. Soon fans of reality TV show Project Runway will be able to try and ‘make it work’’in their home with news that the show will be turned into a game for Nintendo’s Wii.
According to AFP, the Project Runway Wii game will be developed by Atari Inc with a released scheduled for 2010 and the best bit is that gamers will be able to channel their inner model and strut down the catwalk in their designs through the Wii Balance Board.
Does this mean Tim Gunn will be giving out his pearls of wisdom in 3D form as well as in his comic self?
Meanwhile did you know the recently eliminated Project Runway season 6 model, Vanessa Fitzgerald, has a clothing line with her mother? Vanessa and her mother Valerie (a former model and real estate entrepreneur) created V’Ness, a line of affordable “stylish working attire” for women.
… developed and designed for women who need professional work attire that is comfortable, affordable, and gives the confidence needed to step out of the door and be successful.
According to their website, V’Ness came around as an answer to the fashion questions Valerie would receive from women across America.
There’s no word on where you can buy their designs and the mother daughter pair should really consider redesigning the website if the collection is available to the public.
