As any fan of Project Runway knows, one of the prizes for the winner is to have a collection produced and sold on Bluefly.com, and Season 5's triumphant designer Leanne Marshall is in the midst of doing just that.
Today Racked New York headed up to Bluefly HQ to preview the collection of eco-friendly pieces and chat with Leanne during the official photoshoot, snapping the first photos of the actual garments.
The collection consists of one formal gown, two everyday dresses, one skirt, two tanks, two knit tops, and a short jacket, all in shades of coral, cream or blue. Although price points haven't yet been released, the pieces themselves are well-made and reflective of Leanne's signature feminine swoopy style—there are petals aplenty.
Talking with Leanne, she revealed that she's been living in New York City since January and now has a (very adorable) assistant who does all her running to Mood Fabrics. She also still posts handmade pieces to her Etsy because she "enjoys the personal interaction." Guess this means this might be the last time we see her working to mass produce her work?
