In an effort to help end food poverty in New York City, Moves Magazine challenged "Project Runway" designers with the task of creating an orange-themed handbag to benefit Food Bank and their hunger awareness — stitching for a cause to reach 3.3 million hungry New Yorkers.
"Runway" alumni Laura Bennett, Chloe Dao, Andrae Gonzalo, Althea Harper, Mila Hermanovski, Johnathan Kayne, Korto Momolu and Carol Hannah Whitfield are participating. Get all the details about the bags on NewYorkMoves.com
"Project Runway" Season 6 winner Irina Shabayeva showed off her Fall 2010 collection at New York Fashion Week, and it was a sensation, complete with luxe looks, hand-painted fabrics and fantastic feathers. No stranger to using unconventional materials on the runway (Remember the newspaper challenge?), Irina showcased her innovative skills once again by using Tupperware products in her Fall 2010 line. Check out the close-up shots of how she used them in this video clip:
Season 6 runner-up Althea Harper also presented a fall collection at Fashion Week. She played up curves by featuring cutouts in all the right places, accompanied by slick styling and chunky accessories. She created a cool, urban feel every woman would love in her closet, with the perfect mix of sheer fabrics and knits. And, in a total "42nd Street" moment for modeling, "Models of the Runway" Season 1 winner Kalyn Hemphill went from a guest to walking in the show. Talk about a quick change!
