It’s down to five designers as Lift For Life Academy fashion teacher Laura Kathleen Planck won the fashion challenge in Episode 6 of “Project Runway All Stars.”

The episode, “Green Dress for the Red Carpet,” challenged the designers to use eco-friendly fabric for their creations. Laura Kathleen wowed judges Diane von Furstenberg, Isaac Mizrahi, Georgina Chapman and Carolyn Murphy with a flowing jumper made from AirDye double-sided fabric. AirDye is an eco-friendly fabric that is made using no water or power.

Fashion designer Althea, who was already on the ropes, was eliminated from the competition. Catch the next episode at 8 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 13, on the Lifetime channel. Laura Kathleen was the winner of “Project Runway” season 9.

And back here at the Academy, we are thrilled to once again have Laura Kathleen at the helm to run our Student Fashion Show, which will be held Saturday, May 11, 2013.
