Meet "Project Runway" Season 8 Designer Peach Carr

Posted By CaitlinBergmann 5:49pm GMT

"Project Runway" Season 8 Designer Peach Carr creates all of her work in a hayloft, including her very own line of self-dubbed "mullet-wear" that combines the best of the business and party fashion worlds. Her hubby may call her "Johnny Cash" because of her black-saturated closet, but when it comes to designing (and her shoe collection), the self-taught Illinois mom is no stranger to bright bursts of color.


Take a spin inside Peach Carr's portfolio to see what — from Bowie to preppy — inspires the designer, and don't miss out on the video of her home visit. Where else can you get an old chicken coop–filled tour of a "Project Runway" contestant's 1890s barn-turned-house?

Meet "Project Runway" Season 8 Designer Ivy Higa

Posted By CaitlinBergmann 12:17pm GMT

"Project Runway" Season 8 designer Ivy Higa was born and raised in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii — and has a kitchen full of macadamia nuts to prove it — but now represents the home team as one of this season's three New Yorkers. The Manhattanite proves during her home visit that big things (and entire fall collections) come from small apartments, and shows Tim Gunn her Transformer aesthetic and a glimpse at her dark side at her casting session.


Don't miss Ivy Higa's portfolio of past work that includes runway gowns, more convertible-chic clothing and even enviable accessories. Then, check out the designer's fashion transformation through the years, including a chunky platform-sponsored stop in the '90s, in her personal photos.
