Project Runway’s Leanne Is A Trendsetter

Some of us at The Frisky predict that Leanne will win this season’s Project Runway competition because she has a well-defined design perspective — her designs scream her name. She revisits a combination of trends/elements in each of her covetable designs. Since we know you too have been dying to wear her fashions, we found some items that have these trends and are available now.

  • Geometric flourishes, like soft, exaggerated curves and sharp points, are central to most of her designs.
  • She prefers solid, dark fabrics over patterns
  • Like most designers today, Leanne has made the dress an important staple. She prefers the mini-dress, unless she’s creating evening wear.
  • If she had her way, all women would walk around with exposed shoulders. I suspect she finds the collarbone sexy.
  • Most of her dresses have had pockets, which is very practical.
  • Leanne usually defines the smallest part of a woman’s waist when she’s designing, which gives a slimmer silhouette.
