HP Design Challenge on Project Runway!!!

Project Runway - Lifetime's hit TV show hosted by Heidi Klum - had a nice surprise tonight. Tonight contestants were challenged with creating fabrics using HP's TouchSmart PC. The challenge was a first of its kind and was complemented with the divine presence of the oh-so-beautiful Vivienne Tam - who works closely with HP and their beautifully designed minis (I want oneeeeeeeee). She also uses HP’s TouchSmart PC when designing her own fashion line. Having used HP's TouchSmart last summer, I can say that it definitely allows you to ‘do’ more in every single sense imaginable. You can squeeze, slide, pinch, fling – pretty much anything and everything. Imagine how much you could do if you tried creating your own clothes?? The patterns designed by the contestants were the basis behind their looks tonight.
Tonight’s episode was a wonderful reminder for us cute geeks, the audience watching the show and the readers on this site that technology is becoming more and more important in our everyday lives. What was once a luxury in some homes, is now a necessity, especially in industries and jobs whose processes are made more efficient.

Technology is all around us – embrace it…good fashion (however you define that) should be all around us – lets make it happen!
