Laura K. and Blogging the Project Runway

Manolo says, there is the marvelous article in the Arizona paper about the Manolo’s internet friend, Laura K., who is the founder of the Blogging the Project Runway blog.

Laura Kluvo has a big secret.

It’s about the winner of Season 4 of Project Runway, the Bravo reality series where rookie designers compete to be the next big thing in fashion.

She won’t say who it is or how she knows – until it’s revealed properly on the show’s finale next Wednesday – because she hates spoilers.

The stay-at-home Scottsdale mom runs the show’s ultimate fan Web site, called Blogging Project Runway,

Her blog is a hub for all things related to the show: a place to go for podcasts, interviews, live blogs during episodes and compiled news links about contestants and hosts.

She asks herself: What would the show’s biggest fans want to read about, whom would they like to meet and what would they ask them? And then she does it.

She has become friends with several of the designers and co-host Tim Gunn, the show’s breakout star. Project Runway alum Emmett McCarthy designed a floral-print coat and named it the “Laura K.” Gunn went for a ride in the Kluvo van when he was in Scottsdale in November.

And, most recently, she sat third row at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York City, where she watched this season’s finalists show their collections at Bryant Park.

What separates Blogging Project Runway from other sites that track the show is Kluvo’s mission to remain positive and supportive of the designers, which has helped her foster relationships with them.

She doesn’t take sides. And, most importantly, she never includes spoilers about the show in her blog.

The article even includes the mention of the Manolo! Go read it now.
