Local fashion enthusiasts will have two chances to learn how to “make it work” from Project Runway season 11 competitor Richard Hallmarq at The Wardrobe.

The Sacramento designer will hold his “From Runway to Real” Holiday Trunk Show from 4 to 9 p.m. Friday, Dec. 13, and noon to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 14, at the downtown boutique, 206 E St. There will be a question-and-answer session at 8 p.m. Friday.

“One must either be a work of art or wear a work of art,” said Wardrobe owner Heather Caswell, quoting Oscar Wilde. “Here at The Wardrobe we hope you choose both.

“The Sacramento fashion scene is truly starting to emerge. I’m excited to be featuring a local designer this holiday season who has recently inspired millions on TV, and now has the opportunity to inspire many more in person in my boutique here in Davis.”

Hallmarq, who was eliminated in week 10, will talk about his transition from “Project Runway” to being a fashion designer for real women. His prefered textile is jersey knit, which he transforms from simplicity to luxury, according to his website biography.

“Hallmarq is the ‘ready-to-wear Jersey boy’ with a clientele that spans from the woman of business to the world of celebrities. (His) dresses can transform you from the office to dinner or to a red-carpet event — wherever your fashion takes you,” his bio reads.

Born to Panamanian-American parents, Hallmarq’s first career calling was singing and dancing. But he always had a fascination with fashion. He learned to sew in junior high and continued to perfect  his craft in high school, where he designed clothes for family, friends and other students.

His first runway show was in 2004 and he has shown numerous times at San Francisco Fashion Week. He received his fashion design degree in 2009 and the exposure from “Project Runway” and meeting other artists has influenced his current holiday line.

“This holiday collection is bright, colorful and fun,” he said in a news release. “I didn’t just use black — my signature color. I tried to intertwine some festive styles and colors into the collection.”
