Hot Russian Woman Wins TV’s “Project Runway”

20. November 2009 by Daniel 0 Comments

Hot Russian fashion designer Irina Shabayeva was announced Thursday as the winner of season 6 of the hit Lifetime network TV show “Project Runway.”


The reality TV series focuses on fashion design and pits contestants against each other to create the best clothes, while restricting their time, materials and theme. The designs are judged and one or more contestants are eliminated each week. The show is hosted by model Heidi Klum.


Shabayeva, the daughter of immigrants from the former Russian republic of Georgia, came out ahead of two other female participants in the show’s finale. She impressed the judges with 13 designs she had displayed at New York’s Fashion Week this year.


She told judges that her designs – which were described as having a “warrior woman” concept – came about as a result of “what it takes to survive in the city as a woman.”


The 27-year-old professional designer immigrated to Brooklyn, New York, as a child and has spent most of her life there. She holds a BFA from Parsons School of Design and has worked in the fashion industry for five years prior to her appearance on Project Runway.
