At the end of last year, we told you about a growing underground fashion scene in Nashville ignited by the efforts of local designers selling their goods out of home base Local Honey. Three of those top designers have entered their duds to be considered for the next season of Project Runway and made it all the way through to the finals. They're now in the company of 30 or so folks in limbo--the number will be cut down to 15 in two weeks. If they get through the final cut, they'll be part of a team of 15 contestants who'll have the luxury of stitching and bitching on camera under the haughty shadow of Tim Gunn.
Shea Steele, Shannon Lea and Amanda Valentine all made it through the audition process. Now all they have to do is wait. Best of luck, ladies.
