Nick Verreos Project Runway

Verreos took part in the second season of Project Runway in June 2005. This reality television show pits fashion designers against one another to win prizes like a design mentorship with Banana Republic, seed money to start their own line, and more. Verreos completed in fifth spot in the opposition. In the third episode, when designers were required to create a dress for the My Scene Barbie collection, he won the “All Dolled Up” challenge. After that, the doll was sold to the general public in limited quantities and quickly sold out of stores.

During the fifth episode’s “Social Scene” challenge, he was ranked among the top three designers. However, in three additional challenges, he finished in the bottom two or three: “Makeover” (episode ten), “Flower Power” (episode nine), and “Window Shopping” (episode six). After the Makeover Challenge, in which he had to design a fashion makeover for fellow contestant Daniel Vosovic, he was eliminated because he didn’t add pockets to the pants, which the judges thought made Daniel look too feminine. Project Runway’s second season aired on Bravo from December 2005 to March 2006.

Verreos was a guest mentor on Project Runway Canada in the winter of 2007, where the designers had to make two outfits for resort wear. In an episode of the Karma Air show Fashion 411 that aired in April 2008, he and Barbra Horowitz talked about his experiences working on Project Runway and the events and projects he was involved in at the time.

Verreos appeared as an audition judge, guest judge, and guest commentator on several seasons of Project Runway and its spin-offs after competing as a contestant in Season 2. Verreos was asked to be a mentor for the first season of Project Runway in 2013, along with fellow Project Runway alumni Mondo Guerra and Anya Ayoung-Chee: Within the Gunn. Under the Gunn, hosted by Tim Gunn, followed the mentors as they managed, coached, and directed 15 competing designers. Designer Oscar Garcia-Lopez and his mentor, Verreos, were named season winners by judges Heidi Klum and Neil Patrick Harris at the conclusion of a highly competitive season.
