Ben Chmura, Project Runway Season 7, contestant parties in Tampa



I popped into Ben Chmura's viewing party last night. In case you don't know, Chmura is a Project Runway season 7 contestant, local designer and all around nice guy.

The party, held at Rawbar sushi, had a good turnout. Lots of pretty people, hipsters and nosey folks like me. Pictured below is Chmura, 30, and his muse Malissa, wearing one of his designs.


I was fortunate enough to get a little camera time with the designer as well. He was pretty mum on the whole Project Runway experience except to say, "I stayed true to myself and my integrity." I dig that.

Chmura wasn't featured all that much in last night's episode. But his "futuristic" orange mini dress did get him to the next round. So, luckily we'll get to see more of his work. The Deal Divas are big fans of Project Runway, so each Friday we'll be dishing on the previous night's episode.

So what did you think of last night's show?
