Project Runway: Meet the season 16 designers
(including Minneapolis' Samantha Rei!)
If ever there was a reason to watch Project Runway again, it is this! Minneapolis Fashion Scene Darling, Samantha Rei, is a contestant for Season 16!
I had the honor of shooting editorials for Samantha Rei's Second Star and Black Pearl collections, as well as seeing some of those images then published in her fashion design book Steampunk & Cosplay Fashion Design & Illustration. What I can tell you that in addition to being wildly talented and detail driven in the construction of her pieces, she has a beautiful way of bringing her concepts and ideas to a tangible product. Every collection tells a story and they are uniquely fun to explore and wear.
Check out her latest collections on her website at www.samantharei.com.
Rockstar job so far, Samantha! I cannot wait to see this next chapter unfold for you and the amazing things you do with it!
