Hawaii designer Kini Zamora will get his second chance at taking the top spot in Lifetime’s “Project Runway” when he returns for the series’ “All Stars” Season 5. The first episode is set to air Feb. 11, and among the 13 contestants will be three other familiar faces from Zamora’s Season 13: Emily Payne, Mitchell Perry and Fade Zu Grau.
Zamora, noted during the show’s run for his speedy work and couture finishing, ended his season in third place and was one of four finalists to present a show at Mercedes-Benz Fashion week in New York in Fall 2014.
Following “Project Runway,” Zamora returned home to present two headline shows at Honolulu Fashion Week and opened The Clique by KZ to sell and showcase his many collections, ranging from menswear to women’s casual, bridal and evening wear.
Other designers he will be competing against are Alexander Pope, Asha Daniels, Daniel Franco, Dom Streater, Ken Laurence, Layana Aguilar, Sam Donovan, Stella Zotis and Valerie Mayen.
