Fort Collins Teen Featured on Project Runway: Junior
Rocky Mountain High School Senior Molly O'Brien is about to become a TV star. The 17-year-old Fort Collins designer is one of 12 contestants selected for the second season of "Project Runway: Junior," which airs on Lifetime on December 22nd.
Contestants ages 13 to 17 face different fashion challenges and possible elimination each episode. Tim Gunn is back as the mentor, along with the host Hannah Jeter, and judges Kelly Osbourne, Christian Siriano, and Aya Kanai.
Molly began sewing in her grandma's basement when she was 8-years-old. It wasn’t until her freshman year in high school that she was inspired by a fashion design teacher that taught her about clothing construction and building a brand.
