Red Hot

The theme of episode 5 was red–and lots of it! Mentor Christian Siriano hand-selected the single bolt of fabric that all the designers were required to use. The catch was that all of the 11 remaining designers had to use the same bolt and decide themselves how all 110 yards of fabric would be divided between the All Stars. This left each designer with roughly 10 yards of fabric after being divided. This challenge was a true test of each designer’s ability to stand out from the crowd and channel their distinct design aesthetics. This was an interesting challenge, as it not only saved the designers from the stress of a Mood shopping run, but it was also purely a design challenge since they couldn’t rely on fabric choice or patterns to to distinguish their looks. It was all about the artistry of fashion design. Kayne created a stunning gown using his signature draping technique with a plunging neckline. The dress was elegant, but also sexy — what more could you ask for? The material created a beautiful flowing effect on the runway, stealing all of our attention. It’s safe to say Kayne’s look was RED HOT!  

Fit for a Queen

This week on Project Runway All Stars, the designers were tasked with creating a look that was fit for royalty, but with a fresh and modern spin. The challenge took place shortly after the coronation of King Charles III, which was the main inspiration for this team challenge. In this challenge, Kayne was not designing alone and was paired up at random with his fellow All Star, Viktor Luna. The designers were given a budget of only $1,000 to create a look fit for modern royalty, but this was enough for Kayne and his partner to execute their vision. They wanted to create a look that was fit for a modern queen, such as Beyoncé, or Queen Bey as she’s lovingly known. The pair had a strong creative direction, which resulted in the creation of a bold and regal gown, complete with a corset over the bodice. The two of them managed to create a look that was not only strong and powerful, but also soft and feminine. The material of the gown had a beautiful flowing effect on the runway, all while keeping the powerful aura of a queen. The deep color of the gown’s fabric embodied coronation couture! These two definitely created a look fit for a queen.


In Episode 3, designers faced the “most feared” challenge – the unconventional materials challenge. This week designers had to make whimsical looks out of toys from one of the most iconic toy store, FAO Schwarz. With $2,000 to spend, each designer goes crazy grabbing materials to make their vision come to life. Kayne spent his money and time at FAO Schwarz grabbing stuffed panda bears, umbrellas, floor pianos, and more as his unconventional materials. Kayne’s unconventional materials challenge outfit on Project Runway was a hit with the judges and viewers alike. Using the toys from FAO Schwarz, Kayne created a whimsical yet stunning ensemble that transformed from a baby-blue poncho into a smoking-hot mermaid gown. The bleeding panda-bear boa accessory added to the delight and uniqueness of the design, earning Kayne the well-deserved recognition from the judges placing him in the top for this week’s challenge.

Redemption Served!

Project Runway All Stars kicked off Season 20 on Thursday, June 15th on Bravo. In the first challenge of the season, Kayne had a chance for redemption by redesigning a past look that previously sent him home. Although he struggled with missing horsehair that was the whole structure of his skirt, he created an incredible look with the other materials that he had. The look was both modern and elegant, with a silk gazar skirt and flowing train that created a dramatic runway walk. The look was subtle enough to remain elegant, but incorporated a flare of modern trendiness. Kayne was not left “clueless” in this challenge as his newly designed look won the judges over & redemption was served!
