Irina Shabayeva on Designing for the Bold, Feminine Woman

Irina Shabayeva, fashion designer and season six Project Runway winner, sat with Joanna Gagis on “A Life & Living Moment” to discuss her fashion and the women she designs for.

“Every woman wants to be glamorous and beautiful, and that’s what I love to do,” Shabayeva says. “Clothing and fashion enhances that, but it’s really about an attitude of femininity and being bold about it.”

Shabayeva says that being a woman is beautiful, “and we should all embrace it.” Who is her target audience? A woman who wants to be unique and express who she is.

“I love to cast models that are curvier,” Shabayeva says. Most women are not stick thin, and she calls for everyone to embrace themselves as they are.
