As a contestant on seasons 9 & 10 of Lifetime’s Project Runway, Gunnar Deatherage was well known for his witty comments, outspokenness, and quirky whimsical aesthetic. His experience on the show came to life on one of the biggest stages in the fashion industry, the tents of the Lincoln Center, where he presented his Spring/Summer 2012 collection at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. Gunnar has built his namesake brand by creating innovative collections each season and showing the collections around the country. Gunnar’s shows transport audiences to the root of the inspiration for each collection through theatrical music, distinct styling, and clothing for the “not so every day” woman. Gunnar later competed on Project Runway Allstars season 4 where he showcased his talent once again on an international televised platform.
He is currently creative directing progressive fashion spreads for the Voice, Modern Louisville, and Churchill Downs Magazine. In addition to his publication work, Gunnar works with bands, celebrities, and various clients to provide private styling, set and costume design on photoshoots for commercial clients. Gunnar premieres his collections on a tour to both coasts and various US and international cities.
