Kristina Kharlashkina might not be a fan-favorite on Project Runway but she indeed is a talented designer. And the proof lies in her, making it into the top four, battling for that grand prize of $250,000. You go, girl!
This Kristina Kharlashkina Bio is all about her private life; especially her husband, height, and age.
Kristina Kharlashkina On Project Runway
It is for the first time in 19 seasons, Project Runway has had four all-female finalists. Joining our star Kristina Kharlashkina to showcase their collections at New York Fashion Week were co-contestants Coral Castillo, Shantall Lacayo, and Chasity Sereal.
“The craftsmanship is insanity,” mentor Christian Siriano shared before adding that the ladies “did fight for their positions, but they didn’t fight each other.”
And it’s true! If you’ve been watching the show, you know that the sisterhood was amazing. Except for that time when Kristina was paired with her client Wendy Osefo. The two didn’t quite see eye to eye on the costume that was made.
After that very ep aired, Wendy took it to IG to thank the Project Runway cast, intentionally excluding her designer Kristina. Meanwhile, Kristina dedicate a post to Wendy mentioning how Wendy looked “absolutely fab and is an incredibly beautiful woman.”
“I do not deserve to be tagged on her post, but she is very welcome to mine….” Ooop!” she ended her post. Well played!
Talking about her Project Runway journey, Kristina was in the top 2 in its eps 2,4,9,11 and won the challenges in eps 6 and 8.
Also, back when fan-favorite designer Anna Zhou was eliminated in ep 10, many preferred seeing rather Kristina have her bags packed.
A fan tweeted, “Wtf @BravoTV @ProjectRunway just say you hate Asian-inspired designs. Judges said that Kristina failed the challenge yet Anna was eliminated!”

Kristina Kharlashkina Career
Kristina Kharlashkina was always interested in dancing. The designer even trained and competed as a ballroom dancer when she was young. But at the back of her mind, she always had this feeling that it was a costume that greatly elevated a performance. Ultimately, she jumped ship to pursue a career in fashion, and her background in dance greatly influenced her beautiful, wearable aesthetic.
To further enhance her passion, Kristina then joined the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp, Belgium in 2014, after being awarded a scholarship for her master’s. The girl then moved to NYC, worked for top designers including Carolina Herrara, Tom Ford, Celine, Dolce & Gabbana, and more, and marked her presence in the fashion world.
As of today, Kristina has designed many amazing costumes and outfits at Red Star Events. Her 10 years of experience comes from her time as a fashion designer in countries such as Belgium, Italy, France, Russia, and the USA.
Also, the Project Runway finalist now runs her eponymous brand that features old/new collections for all sexes. And by “old” we mean, of the previous centuries. Yes! Kristina’s research is concentrated on the kings and queens of the 16th and 17th centuries.
Overall, her line was all about “tomorrow’s fashion,” focusing on playful and modern designs.
In case you’re looking for a buy, her product cost anywhere from $600 to $1500 per piece.
Trivia: Kristina revied her bachelor’s degree from Samara State University of Architecture and Civil Engineering in 2010.
