September 7, 2012

Lasell fashion alum Sonjia Williams '07, who is competing in Project Runway on Lifetime TV this season, won her second show challenge this week with a fall coat that wowed the judges.

In episode 8, which aired September 6, Williams was part of a three-designer team in the "Starving Artist Challenge." The teams were asked to sell goods they made to finance their fabric budget to create two cohesive looks for fall.

Williams made a short, tailored green coat that the judges, including guest judge fashion designer Anna Sui, loved.

The Lasell alum won her first challenge in episode 4 of the 10th Project Runway season required designers to create a garment that was wearable for the "Michael Kors woman" that can go from day to night. Guest judge actress Hayden Panetierre asked to wear Williams' design at a future red carpet event. Watch more on Sonjia Williams.
