There's YOURS TRULY, Ma'at Atkins taking a pic with Kathleen backstage after the show. I tried to get the skinny on if she advanced to NY Fashion Week on Project Runway but her lips were sealed. LOL

NOTE: Overall, the show was nice. The judges who judged the contestants were Thouvenot, Rick Gelber of Carlos by Carlos Santana, Jill Manoff, Fashion Editor of Alive Mag and Corridor 40, Jane Zachritz designer of Jane Katherine; Sara Garlich owner of Cha Boutique, Darin Slyman , publisher of Vital Voice and Debra Bass, fashion Editor of St Louis Post.

The only concern was the spaciness of the downstairs area which was a bit sardined in with hundreds of people but other than that, it was a nice mix of people mingling and observing the fashions with the models walking down the runway.

The after party included a performance by band Option Control, but prior to to the band, there was a male dancer who came out in 80s style florescent color ed sweater shirt, mini skirt, leggings, heels, with ribbons in his hair voguing and doing splits on the runway portion of the stage. It was the "huh" moment of the evening, LOL
