Project Runway Season 20 Kara Saun

Kara Saun

Los Angeles, CA

Season 1

Kara Saun, an OG from Season 1, is a force to be reckoned with. Over the years, she’s achieved remarkable success in film and television. Most recently, she was the costume designer for the first three films of Disney’s hit musical franchise “The Descendants” as well as serving as the fashion/creative consultant for Disney’s consumer products for all three films. Kara’sdesigns have also graced the red carpet, with such celebrities as Zendaya, Zoe Saldana, Queen Latifah and Snoop Dogg among those who have worn her creations. Despite her professional accomplishments, Kara, known as the Fashion Fairy Godmother, is most proud of her charity work, which she calls “artivism”—the intersection of art and social/environmental activism. Kara Saun returns to “Project Runway” for this all-star season to honor a promise she made to Barbara Anne Saunders, her beloved mother, mentor and muse who recently transcended. With a renewed focus on donating the prize money to the various kids’ nonprofits she sponsors through her initiative the Fashion Fairy Godmother, such as the Cameron Boyce Foundation and Kids in the Spotlight, she’s determined to spread her Fairytale magic on the Runway this time and take the win.
