LDS 14-Year-Old to Showcase Designs at New York Fashion Week

From a Project Runway-themed birthday party three years ago to the actual Project Runway JuniorLDS designer Allie Hunt stunned audiences and judges with her gift. And now, Lunt has the opportunity of a lifetime to participate in New York Fashion Week. 

There isn’t much time for 14-year-old Allie Lunt to slow down.

Allie, a ninth-grader from Dayton, Ohio, and a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, is planning to show five pieces from her collection at New York Fashion Week on Feb. 10, and will be showing the 10-piece collection at Utah Fashion Week on Feb. 17.

Her collection is “ready to wear with a hint of evening,” she said in a telephone interview with the Deseret News.

Allie competed on season two of “Project Runway: Junior,” and was eliminated during the Jan. 26 episode, which was her sixth challenge on the show.

Meeting Tim Gunn for the first time, the designers’ mentor and the show’s co-host, going to the fabric store Mood and making friends with the other designers are highlights for Allie while she was on the show.
