File this under strange and unusual collaborations.
The Denver Art Museum selected eight Project Runway alums to design Yves Saint Laurent-inspired looks for a fashion show to celebrate the opening of the new Yves Saint Laurent: The Retrospective.
Michael Costello, Mondo Guerra, Rafael Cox, Danielle Everine, Cecilia Motwani, Becky Ross, Julie Tierney, and Fallene Wells each designed five looks for the show taking place on March 30th.
OK, we know Michael and Mondo, but who the heck are the rest of these people!?
You'd think they could have convinced some of the more well known alums like Christian Siriano, Chris March or even Santino to participate.

Christian Siriano isn't the only Project Runway contestant heading to the small screen.
Past season designers Austin Scarlett and Santino Rice are teaming up for a series on Lifetime called On The Road with Austin & Santino.
The womanly network said the show will follow Austin and Santino as they:
"Travel to and immerse themselves in the culture of small towns across America to create new, dream-come-true looks for special women in unique situations as they celebrate such life milestones as anniversaries, birthdays, balls, graduations and bachelorette parties."
They're definitely on the right channel!
On The Road premieres July 29th after the season premiere of Project Runway.
Will U be watching???

For those of you who are Project Runway junkies, have no fear! The show is here to stay and its loving network, Lifetime, has just announced that the franchise will be expanding.
Two new projects are being developed with the network that are Runway centric. The first reunites two former Runway contestants, Santino Rice and Austin Scarlett as they go across the country to find women in need of a fashion makeover.
The other, and the one we are more excited for, is in the very early stages of development, but will star Heidi Klum and her hubby, Seal!
Will the kiddies be on the show two??? You know, that's the kind of reality television show that can save a network. (Right, TLC?)
