Call it Project: Uli.
The second season of Lifetime’s Project Runway All Stars debuts 9 p.m. Thursday, with new host, Panama City native Carolyn Murphy. It also costars hometown designer Uli Herzner. The talented German, 41, will tell viewers what she’ s been up to since she was runner up on Season 3 (the show was still on Bravo back then, remember?), like starring in her own PlumTV show, It’s Very Uli.
Herzner has also continued working as a wardrobe stylist for ad campaigns and various designers and companies. “I get to work with incredible, interesting people from around the world and get to shoot on amazing locations,” says Herzner, whose pieces are at Oxygen in Bal Harbour and Therapy at the W South Beach.
“To me styling and designing is a perfect combination and has kept me pretty busy and happy.” Herzner is ready for the next step: seeing her things in department stories so they’re “accessible for everybody.”
As for Project Runway All Stars, 13 designers from seasons past will fight to the death (just kidding) to prove their creative mettle. Guest judges include Kylie Minogue, Stacy Kiebler and Michelle Obama fave Jason Wu.
