I have always been a huge fan of the T.V. show Project Runway, which is a series on Lifetime featuring real up-and-coming fashion designers. Project Runway puts these designers to the test through many design challenges in New York City.
The current season 9 has featured some of the most talented designers of all, including University of Minnesota alumna, Danielle Everine! Danielle is 26 years old and currently living in Minneapolis. She was selected as one of the top designers in the country to compete on Project Runway.
Although Danielle made it to the top 12, she was unfortunately voted "out" in the episode that aired August 25. While she is no longer in the running to win Project Runway, I'm sure she will continue to create fabulous clothes and will be very successful in her future! Visit the Project Runway website to see Danielle's previous work, photos, videos, and to learn more about the show.
