Prom season just got a little touch of star power at The Prom Shoppe in Oswego.
This Saturday, Feb. 23 and Sunday, Feb. 24, Project Runway star Johnathan “Kayne” Gillaspie will visit the Prom Shoppe to give autographs, display his fashion line and work with visitors.
Stacy Shaw, one of the owners of The Prom Shoppe, said Kayne is scheduled to arrive around 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, Feb. 23 by limo.
“Anyone who is here before his arrival will receive a raffle ticket,” Shaw said. 10 winners will be chosen, who will be invited to a meet and greet breakfast at the Shoppe on Sunday morning.
The store will hand out t-shirts for girls trying on dresses that Kayne will be autographing, although Shaw said she was sure he would still be up for signing other objects if girls brought them in.
“He’ll be in the mirrors working with the girls (on Saturday and Sunday),” Shaw said.
In 2006, Kayne was chosen as one of 15 designers to compete on season 3 of Project Runway. Later he came back in Project Runway All-Stars season two in late 2012 where he placed ninth. Kayne returns during the All-Stars season two finale as well. He is chosen by one of the three finalists to help complete a mini-collection during the final challenge.
The designer will bring his line of dresses with him, as well as his shoe line.
“We’re very exited to have a designer come,” Shaw said. She said they had been looking into having a designer come to the store and had felt that the price points of Kayne’s line fit well with The Prom Shoppe.
