Known for seeking out and promoting exceptional independent designers, local retailer John Piermarini will next host Dallas native and Project Runway alum Mila Hermanovski at his Snider Plaza boutique. Fans of the Lifetime network’s fashion competition show will recognize Hermanovski and her strong, modernist aesthetic. The Texan finished third on Project Runway’s seventh season in 2010, but well before her moment in the television spotlight, she’d already developed a very impressive résumé. After completing her studies at the Rhode Island School of Design, Hermanovski worked as a designer for Calvin Klein and a costume designer on several hit films, including 13 Going On 30 and Tron: Legacy. Appearances on both Project Runway and Project Runway: All Stars followed, prior to the launch of her self-titled collection in 2011. Mila Hermanovski will make a personal appearance at Piermarini Boutique at 6827 Snider Plaza in Dallas, from 3 – 6 p.m. on Saturday, October 19th. Exclusively showcasing her A/W 2013 line, she’ll present sleek, artistic dresses and separates crafted of silk, wool, cotton, and leather (example above).
