Secrets Exposed— Project Runway Season 6

Chance Spiessbach of Chance TV found out some of the behind the scenes secrets of Project Runway Season 6.  This season featured some incredible guest judges such as Christina Aguilera, Eva Longoria Parker and Lindsay Lohan.  The three finalists of the sixth season showed their collections at New York Fashion Week at Bryant Park on February 20, 2009, but the finalists were not named and did not appear onstage that day. Irina Shabayeva won the competition with her model Kalyn Hemphill. Althea Harper and her model Tanisha Harper placed second in the competition, followed by Carol Hannah Whitfield and her model Lisa Blades.

The sixth season was the first season of Heidi Klume and  Tim Gunn’s Project Runway to be filmed in Los Angeles, at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising, rather than New York. The pre-finale filming concluded on Friday, October 17, 2008.

The sixth season had been announced to begin airing in January 2009 on Lifetime, but was delayed due to legal issues. The announcement occurred before NBC Universal sought preliminary injunctive action effectively enjoining production. The launch was further delayed due to Lifetime’s request that the suit between NBC Universal and The Weinstein Co. be removed to federal court.

Irina Shabayeva won a $100,000 to start her own line, an editorial feature in Marie Claire magazine and an all-expenses-paid trip for two to Paris.   Kalyn Hemphill took home the prize of Model of the Runway winner.   Check out what the girls had to say.
