When Project Runway Meets the Academy Awards
The sixth annual Rising Star fashion competition hit the runway this Saturday night showing off the top designers in Colorado. Apparel, active wear, accessories and jewelry all were represented in this diverse competition that not only aids the future of the designer but also the Fashion Group International.
This year judges were put to the test dwindling the number of contestants down to the 13 featured designers and then down one top designer. This years top designer and Rising Star Lindsay Backman won with her line Bloom Jewelry. Her line featured fine metal and beading that will grace the necks of many not only in Denver. — Carly Rose Moser, special to Metromix
