Project Runway Ditches Sketchpads for HP TouchSmart PCs
Tomorrow Project Runway returns to the city that started it all – New York. They are also merging fashion and technology with the introduction of HP TouchSmart PCs and HP TouchSmart tm2 notebooks to help bring their creations to life. Contestants will, for the first time in the history of the series, have the option to use computers to sketch designs and inspire their work. Throughout Project Runway’s seventh season, expect to see designers alternate between traditional sketchpads and pens for HP PCs that give them greater freedom to experiment with design mock-ups for each challenge. HP is no stranger to the fashion world since they were instrumental in involving Vivienne Tam and her Digital Clutch netbook. Can’t wait to see if these design gurus even know how to operate a computer not just a sewing machine.
