Project Runway Designers To Show At Austin Fashion Week

If you’re a Project Runway fanatic, then you’re in for a big treat this Austin Fashion Week.  While we have been lucky to see collections from several past PRW designers at AFW in past years, this time there will be two winning season winners along with some of the most popular names from the show.  We will get to see our own hometown favorite Project Runway final four and Project Runway All Star Daniel Esquivel.  What a fun night it will be!
The Project Runway night will take place on  Friday, May 2.  Be sure to get your tickets early because this will be the most popular night of runway shows and will sell out quickly.  See you show!

Jeffrey Sebelia will showcase his new, kids’ line called La Miniatura. Fueled by art and music, his collection reinterprets late 70’s to early 80’s post-punk styles for boys and girls. Playful colors, mischievous prints and lighthearted suits, Sebelia aims to dress children with a discernible sense of style ages 2-14.
After coming across a photo of a dilapidated amusement park, Austinite Daniel Esquivel began creating his new collection to debut at Austin Fashion Week. This is Esquivel’s second time to show at AFW, and fans can find his designs at local boutique Estilo.
Korto Momolu will present a military-inspired Fall/Winter 2014 collection. While Momolu is often recognized for her bold prints and colors, this season will show a muted palette that emulates strength with commanding garments including chunky sweaters and non-traditional outerwear.
Also showing Fall/Winter 2014, Melissa Fleis debuts “Defiant” at Austin Fashion Week. Juxtaposing soft silks and wools with harder materials like leather, metal and denim, the collection allows for interchangeability from day to night for the woman with a modern edge and sporty practicality.
With an intention to elevate the everyday, fan favorite Mychael Knight will show “Ladies Who Lunch” Fall 2014. Working with a neutral color palette infused with youthful pops of color, Knight turns traditionally demure styles on their head with body-con silhouettes, materials and cutouts.
Season 11 winner Michelle Lesniak pushes her own design boundaries by utilizing new materials and colors in her “Girl Incarnadine” Spring/Summer 2014 collection. Inspired by a vulnerable, yet toxic woman that is reminiscent of a jellyfish, Lesniak’s work reveals fragility beneath a warrior-like external shell.
Come see full collections from each of these designers. The DESIGNER ALL STARS VIP experience will afford you the opportunity to meet and take pictures with your favorite designers at the exclusive after party! Tickets range from $15 to $435, depending on the row.
