Danielle Everine: After Project Runway

Friday, November 4th, 2011

She didn’t make it to New York Fashion Week this season on Project Runway, still, Danielle Everine completed her own Fall 2011 collection, which she will unveil next week at Cliche in Minneapolis.
“Call Me Ishmael” is inspired by life aboard a ship.  Everine says she used the theme to explore what a modern day heroine might wear during a trans-Atlantic journey. These sketches are a first glimpse. Everine promises  soft dresses floating under heavy, utilitarian outerwear. Look for old/new combinations of wool, leather, oilcloth and rope. Everine partnered with Lisa Luck of Yeti Records to create custom textile prints, and for the first time, Everine designed travel handbags with laser-etched motifs.
It seems Project Runway’s loss could be the Twin Cities’ gain. Be among the first to see the collection at its debut, 7 to 9 p.m. Nov. 11 at Cliche, 2403 Lyndale Ave., Mpls., 612-870-0420.

Project Runway gossip

Thursday, February 21st, 2008

I think Jack Mackenroth, the Project Runway contestant who had to bow out early this season due to illness, was robbed of the $10,000 fan favorite award on this week’s reunion show. And I got the chance to tell him in person this morning, when we met up at Cliche in Minneapolis. Jack – who was actually born in MN – is in town to judge DivaMN’s student design competition (he sees himself as more of a Michael than a Nina, fyi) and he’ll be back March 8 to show his own mini-collection at the big Club Diva AIDS fundraiser at International Market Square (tix still available).
As for the fan fave, Jack agreed that he deserved the sympathy vote, but says it’s out of sight, out of mind on TV and his exit happened too early to maintain the momentum. He’s actually good friends with the winner of the fan favorite prize and show prodigy, Christian. As arrogant as that "fierce" young designer is, Jack says Christian is talented enough to back it up and a lot of fun to be around. On the other hand, Chris, who got to come back when Jack exited, he didn’t have such nice things to say about…
I’ll have a full report of our shopping trip and more PR gossip in the St. Paul Pioneer Press on Sunday, March 2. | Mpls.St.Paul Magazine © 2008 MSP Communications, Inc. All rights reserved
