Althea Harper Spring 2012

Blogging Project Runway Field Reporter, Jennifer Mara attended Althea's show last night and sends us this report - thanks Jen!

Last night at the Stone Rose Lounge in New York City, season 6 designer, Althea Harper unveiled her 2012 Spring Collection. Althea shows us the way with 20 looks, complete with prints, pleats, knits, and beautiful drapery in a classy, fun sophisticated way. "I was inspired by a book called The Raising, the supernatural, haunting, silhouettes; anything that raises questions for me, I am looking into more exploration." Says Althea.

Most models were rocking fishtail braids, including Althea! according to her it is "easy cool hair that looks great going out at night." The venue, most appropriately promoted the idea that Stone Rose could be where these girls would wear these designs.

As for Althea - glowing in a long sleeved, printed chiffon draped maxi, "influenced by old photos with smudges," a version of a look from the line. (Look #9) Although Althea says her favorite look from the collection is "the short black mini with the creme colored sleeves."
