A correspondent on the scene for the Project Runway show that's supposed to begin at 9am: "So I'm at Bryant Park and it's INSANITY. Never seen it like this. Pure chaos." [RackedWire]
Update: Bryant Park is crawling with Project Runway designers past and present. Spotted: Chris March outside the Tents with Steven from season four. Also saw Jay McCarroll wearing wacky all-mustard-colored outfit with giant shades and Kevin Christiana.
