He won the first ever challenge in "Project Runway" history, snagged the silver medal on "Project Runway All Stars" last month and now, Austin Scarlett is unveiling the launch of his new signature evening and wedding gown collection, AUSTIN SCARLETT, which will debut Fall 2012 at New York Bridal Fashion Week.
The collection will make its first appearance at the Neiman Marcus Flagship Store in Dallas this fall and beginning this October, the gowns will be available through specialty boutiques and select department stores nationwide. Ken Downing, Fashion Director of Neiman Marcus and "Project Runway All Stars" guest judge, describes the collection as: "Modern romanticism with a touch of sweet nostalgia, Austin Scarlett creates memorable brides with his signature feminine flourishes, love of glamour and a healthy dose of drama!"
Austin first gained recognition for his love of all things evening wear and couture on the original season of "Project Runway," later going on to join bridal-design house Amsale as Creative Director of its luxury gown collection, Kenneth Pool, where he designed over six seasons of gowns from Spring 2006 to Spring 2009. View pictures from Austin's portfolio here!
For those desiring a sneak preview of Austin’s confections, the designer is making an appearance with a selection of gowns at COUTURE: New York Bridal Fashion Week at the Barclay New York Intercontinental on Saturday, April 14 from 11am to 1pm and Sunday, April 15 from 11am to 2pm. Press inquiries can be sent to email@example.com.
Brides, brides-to-be, grooms, wedding planners... anyone: What do you think we'll see from Austin's bridal collection?
It's a very "Project Runway" Golden Globes! Heidi Klum (wearing Calvin Klein) strikes a pose with Marchesa co-founder and "Project Runway All Stars" judge Georgina Chapman at a Golden Globes party on Sunday night.
It behooves me as your faithful "Project Runway" blogger for all of these seasons to introduce you to my sidekick in "Runway" crime: Lisa. She'll be recapping her little heart away over on the brand spankin' new Project Runway All Stars Blog.
I should forewarn you that her opinions on all things Austin Scarlett may be slightly biased, as her side of our joint office is plastered with Austin's likeness, original haikus and a stock pile of "On the Road With Austin & Santino" DVDs to last a lifetime.
So, tune in January 5 at 9/8c when we kick off this "All Stars" fiesta and all of Lisa's latest updates!

A brand-new series, "Project Accessory," will follow enterprising artists who will be put to the test to create the newest and hottest trends in accessories as they compete for a cash grand prize to help them launch their own fashion accessories business.
"Project Runway All Stars" (see photos from the first "Project Runway All Star Challenge" in 2009) will be produced by The Weinstein Company and Bunim-Murray Productions, and executive produced by Harvey Weinstein ("Project Runway"), Bob Weinstein ("Project Runway"), Meryl Poster ("Chicago"), Barbara Schneeweiss ("Project Runway"), Jon Murray ("Project Runway," "The Real World") and Rob Bagshaw ("Top Chef Masters").
