Who else has been keeping up with the reboot of Project Runway on Bravo? I especially enjoy the addition of Christian Siriano and Karlie Kloss. The latter is easier to relate to than her predecessor; Heidi lost me circa 2009 when she stated that she found a little bit of an open back to be appropriate for an office environment. And it is not.
Bringing it back to 2019: one of the contestants, Lela Orr, is an eco luxury designer. Lela is the co-owner of the label, Ferrah. Per the website, Ferrah is 100% ethically sourced womenswear. Lela is a zero waste designer, which means that she seeks to use fabric and other materials to maximum capacity; nothing is simply thrown out. I love that she shines a light on zero-waste because previously, I only considered zero-waste in terms of the built environment industries. This makes me wonder, how many other industries can we apply zero-waste to? Food, for sure. Sound off in the comment section with other industries that come to mind.
I especially enjoy when the camera follows Lela at Mood as she discovers materials that align with her eco values and always I find myself looking forward to what she is going to send down the runway. Shall we review her looks from weeks one through four?

Big fan of Lela and her zero waste designs. PR should give her more screen time to promote fashion that is Earth friendly imho
You said it! I think that she and Sonia are sleeper contestants.
