“Everyone (thinks) she’s only on the show because she’s a tall blond beauty,” said Tim Gunn, host of Project Runway. “But she’s extremely talented. She’s going to blow people away.” Althea Harper, a DAAP graduate, fashion designer and finalist on season 6 of Project Runway is coming home for a visit and bringing her trunk with her. With a cutting edge style that combines tailoring and draping to create strong and beautiful silhouettes, Harper is a breakthrough fashion designer in today’s industry. She’s even worked alongside renowned fashion designers like Anna Sui, Vivienne Westwood and Alexander McQueen. Visit Sloane Boutique to check out her Fall 2011 and Spring 2012 collections.
