Project Runway star and Chicago-based fashion designer Kate Pankoke was at ROOF on theWit last Thursday to watch the gorgeous wedding gown she designed glide down the runway. Wedding dresses and tuxedos exclusively from The Bridal Salon at Macy’s State Street were also shown. Before the show, partygoers mingled in the third floor ballroom to experience a wedding at theWit. I briefly chatted with Kate about her experiences on Project Runway. “It was very different being on reality tv. Although it was stressful at times, being on Project Runway is totally worth it,” she said. It’s difficult to ignore this talented designer’s blossoming career. Her humble personality, coveted wedding gowns and sought-after design expertise will no doubt help her rise to the top of this competitive industry!
