INSIDE FASHION WEEK: Mychael Knight's Spring 2012 Runway, Celebs & Our Chat With The Designer!

Former "Project Runway" contestant turned popular designer Mychael Knight premiered his Spring 2012 line for NY Fashion Week in Soho last night.

 

TheYBF.com was on the scene.  And we asked a few questions to the celebs like Trina, Olivia, and Gloria Govan who were sitting front row.  And we picked out our fave looks that came down the runway.  Pics and deets inside...

Mychael tapped models Jessica White, Dani Evans ("Top Model" winner), and Nik Pace (former "top Model" contestant) to hit the runway for his show.  Dani's looking all kinds of hot at this show.  Loves it.

Mychael said to us about his life and dream of showing at NY Fashion Week:

"Life is fun! I’m in a good place right now.  This is a very happy moment. This whole collection brought out memories of my youth..I’m just in a really happy place right now.  You have to work for it. This whole process was hard as hell. I cried a lot this year.  You cant give up”

 

The gorgeous gals snapped some pics together.

Pretty.

Another former "Top Model" contest, Keenyah Hill, was also there.

Nik, who recently had a baby with NFLer Braylon Edwards, hit the show.

Trina, Gloria & Laura Govan, and Olivia all got fab for the front row:

Pretty looks for the ladies.

Mashonda and Olivia also kicked it front row.

And Keenyah kicked it with Sherri Shepherd.

Check out our fave looks that came down the runway and backstage in the gallery below.  Mychael used his great sense of color and avoided what he hates: browns and tans.

When Project Runway finalist

When Project Runway finalist Michael Knight unveiled his spring collection during BET's star-studded, hip hop fashion extravaganza, Rip The Runway, he presented a body of work decidedly more refined than his New York Fashion Week collection, but not straying away from his hip hop roots. His works featured ranged from tights and tops to sweatpants. He is a true talent, with his urban hiphop background and hip hop chic signature. Richard - sweatshirt printing Ottawa

I was a fan of Mychael Knight on project runway. Today I'm really disappointed, his guest and the models are making his production look more like Atlanta Fashion Week not New York Fashion... reality tv...

Danielle looks like a man/tranny like her and Ciara are sisters. Laura looks softer here & her makeup is on point. She is really pretty when she tries. Keenya tattooed her eyebrows with too much of n arch. This show looked ghetto and like all the nobodies were there.

LAWD Jessica that awful nose and those horrid inflated lips!!!! Why do our beautiful women always feel the need to ruin what God blessed them with! I havent seen a black woman yet who looks better in the face after having plaistic surgery! Stop letting hollyweird dictate to us what is beautiful.

So this is why you haven't

So this is why you haven't updated your Project Runway blog Mychael Knight! Yes, I am a PR fanatic, even though I'm still pissed about Korto being robbed of the trophy (not once, but twice). Glad to see you're still designing. You are one of my favorite designers and one of the best Project Runway has ever had the honor of having on the show! Keep up the good work!

Gloria Govan is in desperate

Gloria Govan is in desperate need of a Glam Squad. She's actually very pretty to me, but she constantly looks like her appearance is an after thought. Her clothes always look like they're from Forever Fashion Q and her makeup as though a third tier MAC employee went to town on her. SMH.

As for Jessica White, "Same number, same hood, it's all good." She looks like she still pops her gum and twirls her weave while she talks, and tries to use big words she can hardly pronounce.
