The other night at the Red Bull space in New York, one would have sworn they stepped into an alternate fashion universe where personalities from failed reality competition television shows collided with one another including Atlanta, GA native Mychael Knight whose claim to fame was his stint on season 3 of Project Runway. Well, we’re proud to announce that Knight’s bright and shining day has come as he brought all of the girls to his yard for his Spring 2012 collection in New York city.

You may recognize (under all those layers of makeup) some of his famous model friends who walked in his show from previous seasons of another reality hit America’s Next Top Model. Among them were fellow ATLien Nic Pace, Dani Evans, and the super beautiful tall drink of sexual delight, model Jessica White.  Also in attendance in the front row was daytime television co-host of The View Sherri Shepherd, Love & Hip Hop star Olivia, and the baddest b*tch herself Trina. Take a look at some of the backstage and front row photos when you click below!

Although we weren’t invited (we’re suuure our invitation to the show was lost in the mail), from what we can tell it was a pretty decent show. It appeared to be the same ole tricks up Mr. Knight’s sleeve from where we last left off with the designer; which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. We absolutely love the color pallette with the bright punches of color such as the highlighter yellow as worn on Jessica, grape on Nic, and the grape on Nic. We’re sure if we could see the rest of the collection there would be the expected thigh-grazing cocktail dresses for the clubs, red carpet floor sweeping dresses, and all the chic urban sportswear that the young woman needs in her wardrobe in between. We’re kinda surprised that Mychael hadn’t taken off with his career sooner. He was hands down one of the most promising contestants ever to be on the show. Here’s hoping that spring 2012 brings him all the success he deserves.
