This just in from Amy Tomita at Neiman Marcus:
Next week’s “Project Runway All Stars” will feature Neiman Marcus’ own fashion director, Ken Downing, as a guest judge. Watch for it January 5 on Lifetime TV. The show will feature 13 of the most popular designers from past “Project Runway” seasons.
Neiman Marcus has taken the leap and will sponsor “Project Runway All Stars.” It makes sense, as Neiman Marcus presently carries collections from former competitors Christian Siriano and Kara Janx. Andy South’s fall 2011 collection was carried at Neiman Marcus Ala Moana until recently and he hopes his upcoming spring/summer collection will be back on the racks there. (So do we!) The winner of the All Stars show will have his or her line carried in five Neiman Marcus stores and online.
Neiman Marcus also provided hundreds of shoes, accessories and jewelry the contestants will be able to choose from when styling their runway looks – remember “The Wall”? Wow! Lucky designers – they may be styling with pieces from the likes of Christian Louboutin, Jose and Maria Barrera and Valentino.
