Runway Collection by Sarah Loertscher commissioned by Mila Hermanovski

When I was getting ready to head off to NYC for the HP/Project Runway trip I ran into a neat series of coincidences. I asked Rena Tom for a recommendation and she pointed me towards Sarah Loertscher, a jewelry designer right here in Seattle. Rena wasn’t aware of this but it turns out that Mila Hermanovski (who appeared on Season 7 of Project Runway as well as Project Runway All Stars) had commissioned Sarah to create a jewelry line for her Fall/Winter 2012 runway show. Sarah has a set of earrings, Structure Earrings No.25, from the runway collection for sale on her site which happened to be the same as the pair of earrings Mila wore when she appeared on Episode 3 of the current season of Project Runway. And then I found out that Mila was working with Jamie of Design Milk and would be joining us for the trip.

Mila was delightful and I really enjoyed chatting with her. And on the first day of the trip she wore Sarah’s Hex Bracelets.

Sarah told me that Mila snagged this necklace off of one of the models after the runway show so it became known as Mila’s necklace. She was wearing it at the Project Runway 10th Anniversary Party, shown above.

The earring that Mila wore in episode three of season ten of Project Runway.

    I love everything of hers! Seriously considering a geometric vibe for our wedding, so these would be perfect for that! Bookmarking!

    kat – Mine too! She was really cool in person and it was really great to hear her talk about the creative process and maybe a few stories about what happens behind the scenes in reality tv.

    Brianne – Do! The pieces are larger in person than shown here but contact Sarah, I’m sure she will send images on a person so you can get a sense of scale.
