San Francisco Locals Head to Project Runway

Two San Francisco locals will be making their premiere on season eight of "Project Runway" later this month.

San Francisco designer and San Francisco State alum Christopher Collins will air his designing skills on the highly addictive show, which returns to a television set near you on July 29.

Also joining him is the online fashion Mecca Piperlime, owned by Gap Inc., headquartered on Folsom Street in San Francisco. Piperlime will be replacing Bluefly’s “Accessories Wall” on the show, where designers pick out accessories provided by the company that complement their designs.

Collins already seems to be a successful designer, with a Christopher Collins Boutique in San Francisco and his clothing featured in a multitude of stores across five states.  A pretty big deal for only having launched his first collection in Fall 2008.

Piperlime was founded in 2006 and has many featured “picks” by Rachel Zoe, a celebrity stylist (who also has her own highly addictive show).

To see Collin’s bio and casting session, visit Project Runway’s site.

Collin’s design philosophy is “to make someone feel beautiful, fresh, natural and new,”

according to his website
