For those of you who watched Bravo’s Work of Art: The Next Great Artist, Peregrine Honig needs no introduction. If you didn’t watch, check out Keith Plocek’s weekly recaps on Hustletown, his Glasstire.com blog.
Honig took a few minutes out of a recent busy afternoon to answer some quick questions as NBC Universal attorney Maile Marshall listened in.
No Country for Old Interns: How was watching the end product—the 10 episodes of the TV show—different from your experience making the show?
Peregrine Honig: I gave myself to Bravo, and the narrative they gave me back was really interesting. I’m really glad I did it.
Which challenge did you find the most challenging?
Having to work in groups where I don’t pick my companions. I’m really picky about who I collaborate with, so the group challenges were harder.
There was a lot of buzz surrounding your wardrobe. Can you tell me a little bit about the clothing you wore for the show?
Mostly I wore [Kansas City designer] Peggy Noland, and I wore a couple of pieces by [fellow Kansas City designer and 2009 Project Runway participant] Ari Fish. My necklace is from Brian Haas of Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey. He gave it to me as a gift. It’s from his girlfriend. My hat is from a girl in Texas: Chia Hats. She’s killer! Give her some credit so she can make some money off my head.
The finale has aired. What’s next for you?
I have a show in October at Dwight Hackett Projects that I agreed to before the show. I am really excited about that.
