Answer: Designer Ra'mon-Lawrence Coleman
He is one of the designers who competed in season 6 of Project Runway. But his rising star went into a holding pattern during the yearlong legal battle over "Project Runway's" move from the Bravo network to Lifetime. During this time Coleman had to keep his presence on the show a secret.
What did Coleman do while he patiently waited for his season to finally air? He moved to Milwaukee to take a design position with Kohl's, where he is collaborating on a new collection by "The Hills" alum Lauren Conrad.
If you want to root for him on Project Runway - season six begins Aug. 20 on Lifetime.
Update: I can't belive I forgot to mention the other connection! Season 6 of Project Runway was filmed in L.A. at FIDM, the same school Lauren and Stephanie attended.
