Keith Michael: Post-Runway he's doing just fine, thanks.
You might have thought that after a Project Runway competitor gets asked to leave the show, that he'd be doomed or he’d never work again, and all that. Well, you’d be wrong.
This just in: A note from the fierce fashion PR firm Brand Pimps, who rep all flavors of killer hip clothiers (Yoko Devereaux, Stussy, Canterbury of New Zealand…) to let me know that Keith Michael, who was ousted from the show on this past Wednesday night’s episode, is alive and well, designing up a storm and prepping his new line for Spring/Summer 2007. For real!
Yo Keith. The short haircut works!
Keith says that Keith Michael Designs presents a “cosmopolitan line that reinterprets modern style made in NYC.” His price points are reportedly moderate and he has already had a bit of press in Nylon Guys and Sportswear.
And so, after focusing on his menswear for several seasons (and maybe a result of his Project Runway womenswear workout) Keith is putting out a line for the ladies. So check it out in the pics below and online… Decide what ya think…

And if you’re still jonesing for more about Keith’s departure from Project Runway, you can watch his exit interview on the Bravo site, and you can get Tim Gunn’s response to the whole affair. Of course, I’m waiting breathlessly for FourFour’s recap which should be coming on Monday. Hurrah!
